You have two separate problems. The Tail Light out message is due to the Mustard Colored Relay. Go here to see How to fix the Mustard Colored Relay:

Second problem: I suspect it's a bad battery. This happened to me also just before the battery died.

I have 2 problems that are haunting me
1. The language on the dash changes back and forth between German and English.
2. The tail light out message comes on after the light have been on for a few minutes. I turn the car off, let it sit for a few minutes, start it up and it is fine for a few more minutes. Something getting hot and breaking the circuit?
