My first 200q did this intermittenly for the 7 yrs I owned it. After 
replacing the rear bulbs and checking the wiring, I always thought it was a 
false alarm on the diagnostic computer. It might go 6 months and not do it 
then do it 150 times in 150 miles. Hitting the cement jersey barrier at 50+ 
mph cured the problem :-)
