Question Substitute break lights

I got a 2006 ML350. I had to change the substitute break lights on the left and right side both. The Mal-Functioning messages on the console keeps coming back once in a while and then goes away after a while. What could be the issue and resolution?

Break = broken
Brake = stopped

Just replace all the bulbs and you should be fine. PepBoys bulbs may not, however, as this is a European car that prefers Euro-spec bulbs.

They can be a pain. you just have not found the bad bulb yet. I helps if you can have some one step on the brake and you look at the lights the good one will light for a split second then it will go to default system. Good Luck
