I assume the other lights come on at reduced brightness. If so then it is very likely to be an earth fault on the brake lights. Check this in the rear light clusters. Install a temporary earth for the brake lights and see if the problem goes away. If it does, check the earthing of the light cluster. If it doesn't then maybe it's a BSI problem. See the many other posts on this forum on how to reset the BSI.

yes problem solved- it was light bulb (dual one- break light/regular light) fault that shifts additional electrical signal on break light or regular light how strange to do - instead of a fuse! many thanks for help Smile
