I have a 2003 A6, and recently my ABS and ETC lights have been on and the brake lights are not working. I called the dealer and they said to check the fuses - but they are fine.
Does anyone know what the issue may be, and possible expense of fixing it??:(
THANKS!:)

brake light switch defective.The switch has three puprposes 1 brake lights 2 engine control unit needs to see the switch on or off and number three the abs/esp needs to see whats going on also from the switch position so replace the switch or check the operation of the switch with a multimeter or vag com.

I just replaced this and all is good. I am no mechanical expert. Just be sure the follow the instructions. When removing the plastic piece under driver. There are 5 bolts. 2 underneath, 1 in the fuse "box" and 2 near the dashboard. The 2 on the dashboard are accessible by "popping" off the piece above the steering wheel. Make sure the Brake light switch locks into place. It was not that bad, only a few hours. The 2 screws on the dashboard had me for a while.
