Question 1996 BMW 328i control panel

My control panel indicates that a brake light is out but I have checked countless times & both brakes lights are fully operational. Any ideas ?

Brake light, or tail light? I've had inexplicable things like that happen to. This isn't a definitive explanation, but with older cars the bulb contacts could be kinda skuzzy, undo all those bulbs, rub off any surface corrosion on the contacts, and see if that helps.
