1994 SL500 - Rear Lights - come on randomly sometimes

Hi everyone and happy thanksgiving,

I've noticed overnight that sometimes my rear brake lights come on. I did notice once that the front right turn signal light was on first thing in the morning. Not flashing but just on.

This happens randomly and more often when it's cold outside with the car locked, turned off properly and obviously the lights setting "switched off". To stop it I start the car and tap the brakes and then turn the car off. This fixes the problem until it happens again.

Is this a fuse or relay sticking? Or a computer system that needs to be replaced?

Thanks as always,
Marco
