My E39 530 is showing that a tail light is out on the instrument cluster. However, I don't see a light out, nor is the brake light out. The manual says it's my center light. Dunno...any suggestions?

common for E39 if theres any dielectric grease or any type of dirt inside the bulb socket the risistance values change and set off the light..

just pop open the rear lights and have a look take the bulbs out and clean out the sockets, the problem should be fixed..
