Question about 2008 Audi A3 S Line Hatchback

1 Answer

Reverse lights not working.

My Audi A3 2000 brake lights are not working. I have checked the bulbs, they work fine, I also checked all the fuses (10A) and they work fine. I then checked all wiring and everything looks ok. I cant find the problem at all! could it be the switch in the gearbox?

    thanks John, yes, it looks like the problem was with the pressure switch. I changed it with a new one and all is working fine! thanks

    I have replaced the bulb and have checked the wiring for wear. It looks fine but I'm wondering if the 'switch' is worn. I would like to fix this myself if possible. Do you have a schematic so that I may take the base apart? A reply of a 'quick fix' would be great! Thank you!

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

My left brake light/turn signal isn't working! I replaced the bulbs and turn signal flasher! Still not working! Its 2000 Chevy s10 blazer


If the other brake and turn lights are working the brake light and flasher units are ok . With a test light check at the bulb holder terminal and bulb holder body, test light should glow ,if not check from terminal to a metal part of panel away from the light body . If test light now glows the brake light body has a bad earth if the test still not glowing the power cable to the light is broken.

Right back-up (reverse) light not working. Bulb is good, Gauge 10A fuse changed. Still not working. How do I fix this please?


Check the:
1. Centre contact with in the bulb holder for corrosion.
2. Presence of supply voltage with a test lamp when the ignition switch is on, hand brake pulled, engine off and reverse gear engaged.
3. Ground circuit.
4. Replace bulb.

No brake lights or reverse lights


If the 10A brake light fuse 20 is OK, the brake light switch or the brake light sockets could be defective. There also could be missing ground connections

The back-up light problem could be caused by a defective park/neutral position relay

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.

The brake lights and reverse lights do not work


I am assuming the rest of the lights work fine?If they do it is not likely a fuse because a fuse would be associated with more than just the rear lights.Have you checked bulbs?It is not necessary to check all of them but I would at least check 1 of both systems.

Brake lights dissappeared


Try and locate the fuse that controls your brake lights. If you have no service information inside an owners manual, remove each fuse one at a time to check for any burnt out. Do not switch any fuse locations, or replace any fuse with a different amperage rating. example, if you find a 10A fuse that is burnt, replace it with a 10A fuse only. If you cannot find any burned fuses, you should probly replace your brake switch underneat your dash. Your brake pedal will hit the switch, so you shouldn't have any problems finding it. It will be small and black

Reverse lights do not work


definately check the fuse, if it is good then you need to check the condition of ground in the light bulb sockets, if good then you will have to check the reverse light switch

Check the brake light switch located under the dash, and is energized by depressing the brake pedal.
