Persistent Numberplate Light Error

Well, I have a persistent erroneous error message!

My display (plus the annoying beep) keeps telling me that my numberplate bulb has gone. It hasn't. Infact there are two bulbs, yes? They're both fine.

This is going to sound certain times when driving (normally lustily), the message comes up. It almost comes up where a turbo boost message might come up, when giving her some beans. Almost like there's a 'crossed wire' in the Canbus or something. She is remapped, but she drives just fine, and never goes into limp mode. I'm sure in reality it's nothing whatsoever to do with this, but it is very strange.

My next service is due in November, I'm not sure if I can stick it out till then!

Any ideas, anyone?

I had spurious numberplate light warnings. One of the bulbs looked dimmer than the other so I replaced it. I also took apart the assembly and cleaned the contacts and it hasn't happened since.
