Hi I have a 2000 Gs400 Platinum Edition with 120,334 miles,recently the Rear Light Failure Warning Light comes on and stays on but no rear lights are out.
Has anybody had this problem, if so what caused the problem? I am thinking that there mightbe a bulb about to burn out.
Thanks for Your time?

i know on my GS300 when my warning lights came on for the rear i had to change a couple of the brake light bulbs even though they seemed to be working fine.

only until i changed the rear bulbs did the warning lights go out.

good luck

You need to have good eyes and tapp them to look for a loose bulb , Also it is for the brake lights only not the park lights.

im not doubting u or anything but r u sure? cause i had a 3rd brake light burnt out (well it would turn off and turn back on sometimes) but i ALSO had a nighttime running light (if thats what they are called) that was burnt out. i replaced them at the same time so i couldn't be sure but i would figure it would tell you about ANY burnt out light!

Recently had a dent fixed on the trunk of my GS 300. After picking up the car I started noticing the bulb warning light on the dash if the lights were on. After two return trips to the dealer it was discovered that the brake lights in the trunk deck were the problem. Since they were both lit when the lights were on everyone thought they were fine; however, the brake light portion of the bulbs were burnt out. Replacing the bulbs solved the problem. :)

I recently experience the same problem with my 99 gs 300. my tail light on both sides are lit, my high beam lamp was burn out but did not solve the issue after i replace it. I had my 8yr son press the brake while i watch & notice that one of my high brake light was out. the high brake lamp has (5) small bulb & one was blown which cause the warning light to keep coming on. Like another person said, if your warning light is on, you have a blown/loose bulb somewhere. Pay close attention, Best result at night.
