2019 Stelvio TI electrical faults last evening. The brake light out and parking light out warning light came on. Went away and then came back. Not sure what to do.?
Thanks

Dumb question. Did you check the brake and parking lights?

So you looked at the lights themselves on the exterior of the car and observed the lights actually going out and then turning back on, thus triggering the warning on the dash?

Well, the battery is a good place to start regardless. If you have the original Varta battery, replace it with a new Interstate AGM. Costco carries them if you are a member. Check all of the chassis grounds as well and make sure nothing is loose.

I would probably ask if the car has ever had any body repairs.
Or what was the most recent work done to the car.
Someone may have not connected something back together properly, and its slowly working its way loose.

What he said about chassis grounds is what to look for if the battery is good. Maybe even if it isn't.

Been a couple cars that have reported loose ground cables.. specifically ask the dealer look for that if you take it in.

one last thing. did you check the fuse? Our tail lights are LED so it draws very little power from the battery so sometimes closer one to the fuse box will recognize the amp draw but further one may not if the fuse is about to break. A good tap, not a harsh tap, to the fuse box may break that "about to go' bad fuse.
