Right side light failure??

The other day I kept getting a right side light failure warning on dash. then it sometimes says brake light failure. I've checked all lights and got someone to check my brake lights were working. Everything seems ok but these messages still keep popping up. Has anyone else experienced this and what do I need to do?

It's driving me mad!?

How old is the battery? I had this when my battery started to fail and after a while all sorts of random messages were being displayed.

It could also be worth cleaning up the connecting plugs/pins with contact cleaner and some emery paper. The warning comes on when the system detects high resistance which can be caused by dirty connections in the bulb circuit.

Thanks for your responses. I changed the brake light/side light bulb and the indicator bulb right side and everything is sorted!?
