The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.
I have the similar situation, while driving got a message on dash that rear lights were not working so proceeded to change bulbs, no solution as problem still persists.someone suggested I buy and replace the rear light fittings and plugs which I did at a huge cost and still the same problem. Any suggestions
first check if the fuel pump is working you can hear littile sound from rear seat once you s.w on if no littile hammer by hand after you up rear passenger seat while s.w on then check some time fuel pump stuck up . check battery is ok enough to start .
check and see if there's any other icons flashing on the dash other then the warning lights. it may also be that the warning light has blown or someone removed it so they could sell it. other then that all you can really do is check the book that came with the car for reasons that there's a warning beep or take it to a mechanic that has a scan tool with the software for that specific vehicle.
I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a
common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is
located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get
the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
From left to right
1. The wrench light is the service interval light.It will illuminate after about 4800 miles or 358 days to remind you your vehicle is due for service.To reset hold the SELECT and UNITS buttons on the trip computer for 5 secs. The light will illuminate then extinguish itself after about 4 secs.
2. Frost warning light. This light illuminates yellow when exterior temps are between 39 to 32 deg. F to warn you of possible icing on the roads.It will illuminate red if temps drop below 32 Deg.
3. Brake pad warning. Will illuminate when brake pads have worn down to the sensors in the pads.
4. Washer fluid warning.
5. Door Ad-jar
6. Bulb failure. Indicates an exterior bulb is out.This will illuminate until brake pedal is pressed after starting engine unless of course one of the brake lamp bulbs is burnt out.
This warning light indicates a problem with the rear lights (Brake lights, Reverse lights, Number plate light)... Normally it is set off by a bulb that needs to be replaced but it has been documented that using incorrect Watt rated bulbs can also trigger the warning light. It has also been noticed that faulty wiring may trigger the it too.
