Computer Screen

So on my 94 ZJ 5.2L Limited, I've noticed that a square block on either side of the rear bumper on my computer screen have been flashing. At first I though it was telling me my license plate bulbs were out (which they were) I replaced them and its still flashing. All other tail light blubs are working (reverse, brake tail, and blinkers) Any ideas would be great in figuring this out Thanks!

More than likely a light is out in the top brake light, or solder joints are bad in the VIC(Vehicle Information Center.)

Are you able to upload a pic of it? On either side of the rear bumper is the brake lights. Or is it the tires that are flashing?
