Intermittent Warnings

On my 2011 X3, I have had a couple of warnings show up and then disappear. First, I got a warning that the brake light was out but the warning disappeared after restarting the car. Then a warning came on saying the Tire Pressure Monitoring System wasn’t working. Again, after restarting the car, the warning was gone.

Is this an indication of something else going bad?

FWIW I used to get intermittent warnings that a back-up light was out; when I checked it was working properly. I finally figured out that whenever the car was parked away from the sun the tailgate would heat up and trigger the error message. Eventually the bulb did burn out and I haven't had the warning since it was replaced.
