Rear high level brake light not working

Audi a3 2006 s line quattro 3dr
the rear high level brake light has stopped working because the washer pipe for the rear window came off and water shorted the brake light out.
i stripped it down but cant seem to get the light out without breaking it because it dosent seem to be screwed in, has it got plastic expanding clips on it?

SOURCE: Audi a3 rear brake light fault

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.

SOURCE: abs and brake light is flashing on my 99 audi a6

If you need to repair the brake module, there is a fantastic article, complete with photos, at http://www.audiworld.com/tech/elec116.shtml

I followed this example for my '98 and now it works perfectly. I found a shop on eBay to rebuild my module (lifetime warranty) for under $200. It took me about 1 hour to pull it off and about 45 min to put it back on with minimum shop tools

SOURCE: Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4

Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

What does the red flashing BRAKE light on the dash mean? I can't pass inspection until I get this fixed. I have a 2002 Audi A6, Quattro/turbo 2.7L


This flashing light should refer to your brake fluid level. The level inside the reservoir is low. Look into it, you may need to have your brakes repaired. Also take a look at the emergency brake, Make sure it is fully released. Let me know if that helps, good luck.

Why would an audi a4 boot alarm keep sounding. Does it matter that the spare wheel has been taken out for repair?


Audi A4 1.8T Avant 190 S-Line Quattro. Rear washer is leaking down the inside of the bootlid, and as it is right in the centre it is running down on to the boot catch and causing the boot catch sensor to think the boot is open when it isnt.

Can anyone tell me how to get the panelling off the inside of the boot lid and also, if i dry out the motor and reconnect the pipes etc, will everything come right??

I have a 03 Audi A6 Quattro with the ESP & ABS light on


It's probably your brake check switch going bad, it's under the driver's side dash above the brake pedal. I had the same problem and eventually my cruise control and brake lights stopped working when it failed completely. This is also a redesigned part that you can get from the dealer for about $8, which to me indicates they new the part caused problems and failed to notify owners. Try that before Audit tries telling you wires are faulty.
