Warning light for brake bulb always on

Car is a 1996 s500

The bulb warning light on my dash is always on; indicating that a brake lightbulb is out.

Even though the bulbs are working - I replaced them anyway

The warning light on my dash is on; it comes on the first time I press the brake peddle after engine start, and then it stays on until the engine is shut off.

Brake lights seem to be working fine.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Please advise, thank you,

Did you Check Third Brake Lamp?

I had a similar problem and it turned out it was the third brake light which I was completely ignoring. I replaced the bulb but also had to clean-up the connections on the bulb socket. Problem solved after the clean-up.
