Default False rear light failure warning.

My 1994 is giving me a False rear light failure warning on the console. All of the lights work fine.
What gives?
Thanks

Yep. The one in the top of the back window. There are 2 lights. One is out.
Thanks.

That still did'nt fix the problem. I even replaced the liscense plate bulbs and that did nothing. Starting to think its a glitch.

I recall reading something about this somewhere. I think the fix for the poster was a different type of bulb because 2 kinds worked, but one triggered the alert on the console. That's my 2 cents

Yeah. 2057's instead of 1157's. I'll give it a shot and let you all know. Thanks

Fixed!
The old brake bulbs were still working but when I took them out they basically fell apart. I put the 2057's in there.
However I still had the warning on the display. Upon further inspection one of the bulbs in the 3rd brake light had burned out. I just replaced one of them yesterday.
I think the Jeep was just having fun with me. It's got to razz it's new owner a bit. lol
