Audi a3 rear brake light fault

The offside brake light does not work. I have checked the bulb and fuse and they seem ok. What could be the problem please.
The brake light on the nearside and in the tailgate are working.

The dealer can fix this or any mechanic with a vag com interface, basically its a matter of programing the tailgate lights (both of them) to work as brake lights. the euro speck enables one of the other or both, same goes for the backup light. if you had a module replaced recently this could be the reason for the change, whoever installed it should be able to rectify this for you.

Audi A3. All brake lights not working.


Check & replace if necessary the fuse no.# 5 - F5 (5A) = Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch, placed in the fuse box / relay plate fascia 1. See pictures below:

If the fuse F5 is OK check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

One fog light in 3003 vw golf not working - repalaced bulb, there does not seem to be a particular fuse on the fuse diagram?


depending on country,most golf DO NOT have 2 rear foglights,this is not to confuse the driver behind thinking they are your brake lights,the one that works is fitted/wired to the offside.it still has a bulb holder though........the fronts have a fuse for both(when fitted)

My brake lights dont work, i have checked the fuse and bulbs but all is ok, my car is an audi a3 1.6 99 model


Check the brake light switch (aka the stop light switch). I'm not familiar w/ Audi, but most cars have the switch located on the upper portion of the brake pedal, with an electric plug in connection. I couldn't find a listing for info on the a3, only the a4 and 6 for that year . That switch is approx. $40. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

Fuse problems on hyundia lantra 1999


are the rear lights combined? ie sidelamp and brake lamp in one bulb .if so, there is a possibility that the bulb is not sitting correctly in the holder , causing both the side & brake lamp fuses to blow . if they are seperate bulbs you probably have ashort in the sidelamp system somewhere but the brakes could be a switch problem [easy check, find switch ,disconnect wires short across using wire or paperclip switch on ignition and check lights ] if they work the switch is the problem , [check fuse first] if they don't

Reverse lights not working.


Most likely. It sits on the front of the gearbox and has 2 wires going into it. Remove the plug and bridge the wires with a small piece of insulated wire. Turn ignition on. If lights are on change the switch

Brake lights stopped working on a 1993 audi a3 - the fuse has been checked is ok


Hi buddy, writting you from Brazil...

I may suggest you to check a switcher that is installed in front of your brake pedal. It may be not working properly. Try removing it and buying a new one (it is not expansive) and install the new one. I had the same problem in my Audi, 1.6, 2000, and now it is ok!

To remove the switcher, first, remove the cable, than remove the switcher, turning it around (not remembering if CW or CCW, you have to try).

Hope it may help you!

See you,
