My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Check and make sure the correct brake light bulbs are installed.I have seen on several models in the past before where the incorrect bulbs being installed can cause an issue with a false brake warning lamp like this.Even if the bulbs all light up properly if one is the incorrect type of bulb this will occur.If this is all checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

Pete THis is a brand new truck,the dealer said bring it in ,it may be the computer link to the brake lite. All I wanted to know was there away to clear the stored message in the EVIC. If you can't tell me how to do that, then your help isn't needed.

I apologize for the delay. The only way I know to clear the fault that you see in the message center is with the scan tool connected to your vehicle that can communicate with all computers in your vehicle.
