Help Brake Light/side Light Problem

Hi, I've recently bought my 1st Alfa 156 and it's been great until the bulb failure light appeared on the dash board. I found a brake light had blown so I replaced it with a new bulb. But the failure light was still on the dash board. I changed the bulb again and now have a brake light but no rear light. Warning light still on dash board but now opposite front side light will not go out even after turning the ignition off so I've had to remove it. Checked parking light switch which is off. Please can anyone help

Re: Brake Light/side Light Problem

My bulb warning light came on when i hit the brake pedal the other day. took out the housing, brake light bulb was blown. changed the bulb. still not working. doesnt look to be any loose wires, i presume they would be easy to spot cos the wiring in it is very neat. anyone any ideas? dont want to go to a garage with such a tiny thing!! is there a fuse that is particular to each brake light?

Hope someone can help.

Re: Brake Light/side Light Problem

Do a search on Rev Counter failing. A diode fault causes the light to come on but also a faint circuit goes to a bulb when the ignition is off.
