Default Error messages - false positives

Hi. My dash display beeps and reads that a bulb is out when all bulbs are okay. I'll take all bulbs out at the weekend and clean contacts etc. but is there a common fault with these Peugeots? I'm also after the buzzer location so I can shut it up! Any clues?
Thanks!

Yes, my sons 407 had issues at the rear so I added in extra earth from the light cluster to body and all good since - there are details / photos on the Forum I believe.
Anyway an easy job at rear.

Cannot help on buzzer sorry.

Extra earth, great tip! I will sort this at the weekend.
All the errors seem to be about the rear clusters so I assumed it was dodgy wiring for the towbar socket and was planning on a full strip out and replace of that system.

Link to the earth mod guide for future reference 407 bulb pdf
Not mine but previously posted by someone here.
Had this same fault on my car (407 2.0SW) which is not known for this. Cured it by replacing the brake switch.
If the mod doesn't work (ie. cheap fix) then try replacing the brake switch, still cheap.
It's up the back of the glove box (RHD).
