Hi,

I am having problems with my A3's brake lights. When i push down on the peddle the lights dont always come on, in fact id say 6/10 times they dont come on. I have checked all the connections that i can see and they are all in securely so im lost on what is the problem is.

I have only just been able to drive my car again after having 4 weeks off due to 2 broken fingers. The car has just sat on my drive all this time and as far as im aware the lights worked before but i cant say for certain as i dont tend to check them that often.

The car is a 1.6 '97 (UK -P Reg) A3 sport.

Any help you be apprieated.

Steve

Thanks for that, its spot on.

I will book it in to get somebody to check the switches asap, as i dont want somebody going into the back of me. Going to work tomorrow morning is going to be fun!!!

Well guess what...

2 weeks ago the brakes lights stopped working again. Was only when a mate followed me home did i know so not sure how long they had been out for.

Well rang up my local audi dealer and they booked it in for another look - got to drive a A4 2.2 TDI for a day which was nice - they rang me up about an 1hr later saying that they have replaced the whole brake light switch as because they didnt fix it before this will be free of charge. Was well happy with that!!!
