Blown Lamps Dash Warning

Hi all just wondering if anybody else has had this one before, but on the 147 16v diesel the dash warning notice for various blown lamps keeps flashing up. But on checking all the lamps are still illuminated.
Is it a pending ecu failure, or are the standard Alfa gremlins finally getting to this car?

If you've checked all monitored bulbs (especially the numberplate bulbs) and they're normal bulbs, not LEDs, then on a 147 it does start pointing to a body-computer issue.

It happened to me a couple of times, and every single time within 2 weeks of the warning bulb appearing a bulb actually failed.
I suspect the resistance changes when the bulb is about to fail and that triggers the warning bulb
