I had this problem too. It turns out that the tail light bulbs in my car had a dual-element and in one of the bulbs only one of the two elements was burnt out, so it still lit up but after looking closely you could tell that it wasn't as bright as the others. I replaced the half-burnt out bulb and the indicator on my dash went away.
