Default Brake Lamp Indicator won't go off - 00 TL

I noticed that I had both brake/tail lights out on the right side of the
car. I replaced the two bulbs on the right side and the lights came back
on, at which time I noticed one tail light on the left was out, which I also
replaced and all the lights now work. The problem now is that when I start
the car, the brake lamp indicator comes on when I hit the brakes for the
first time. Strange thing is that when the light was out, the indicator
lamp didn't come on, but now that I have replaced the bulbs, it comes on.
Does the indicator light need to be reset? Any help would be appreciated
before I have to take the car to the dealer.
Thanks in Advance

It sounds like you got gremlins back there. If you are talking about the
light that says "brake lamp", there is a test procedure for the sensor (its
in the left side wall in the trunk). If your warranty is still good, I
would take it in and let the dealer do it. If you are out of warranty, and
it you have some talent in identifying shorts and opens in circuits, email
me and I'll send you the page out of the Helms book.

double check those bulbs you put in...take them out and reinsert them.
I had a similar problem and that fixed it.
