Rear light problems

I have a Fiat Linea Multijet Diesel 2008. I constantly experience rear light failure which activates the EXTERNAL LIGHT FAILURE WARNING on the dashboard panel. Sometimes, it is a genuine problem with a burnt-out bulb, e.g. a sidelamp, but recently I have been experiencing failure with the LH brake lamp which is still OK when testing. The next obvious step is to check the fuse panel. As the fuse (F35) covers several other lights which apear to be working normally, the natural conclusion is that the fuse must be OK.
Any ideas how to solve this problem?

Re: Rear light problems

Check the circuit in the light fixture. My old punto (52 reg) did this and was corroded wires. Got them cleaned and everything was fine.
