Check front fog lamps & tail lamps

Hey guys,

I'm getting these two messages on my instrument cluster display:

* Check front fog lamps
* Check tail lamps

I checked and they are all working What could this possibly be? Broken sensors?

Check out your fuse.. or the just disconnect, then reconnect your battery .. should be cleared.. <- that resets the computer

If your getting a check bulb light and the lights are all o.k. then the system is reading a different resistance from the bulb.... possibly aftermarket bulb, which the LCM (light control module) should reset by itself over 3-4 starts of the car....
