That's what I was thinkin...

Tuning/PCM issue, unless the harness to the sensor is shorting or something.

Improper tuning / bad connections with the PCM will kick lights for no reason. WIF and WTS are the most common.

Usually thought there's other quirky crap associated with it.

I'd guess short.

It's a common ish issue with E99's, and usually associated with something in the chips tuning not liking the PCM code it's mated to. Only reason I'm throwing out the PCM / tuning thing.
