Break lights failure sign

Break lights failure sign coming up every few minutes on the dashboard. However, viewing from outside, all break lights are functional...any ideas what might be triggering the error?

Sounds like one of your BRAKE light bulbs is on the way out, the change in resistance can be enough to trigger the dash alert before the bulb fails.

Good luck

Check the brake fluid level - as the pads wear and the level drops this can trigger the warning light. Most often likely to flash on as you change direction or brake/accelerate....
