Rear Lamp Failure

Everytime I turn on my lights my display reads "rear lamp failure". But everything is operational, brake lights, parking lights, directionals and reverse lights. Is this a computer issue? anyone? Thanks....

I haven't seen this, but here's additional things I would check:

license plate lamp
interior rear cargo light

Hope you find the problem!

I would take the lenses out of the 3rd brake light and check each bulb. Sometimes its hard to tell if they all are working. good luck

Anthony is right. It's the 3rd brake lite. There are 3 bulbs so check them carfully.

I've also received a warning when the license plate bulbs burned out.

Same thing happened to mine 2 weeks ago it was the middle bulb of the 3rd brake light, you could hardly tell because the other two bulbs were still working!
