You need to use LED bulbs with a build in load resistor. The LED bulbs use less voltage then normal Halogen bulbs which triggers the OBC to think the bulb is burned out, triggering the warning for you to replace it.

You should be able to find the same bulb on ebay, but add "load resistor" or "no obc error"" when you search.
