This sounds like your stop light switch. Most cars (not sure about Audi) have it located on the upper portion of the brake pedal. You should be able to adjust it so it will not activate the brake lights until the pedal is pressed slightly. It's a $15 part, but should not need to be replaced unless brake lights don't work at all. Hope this helps.

I would suspect a faulty brake switch which is activated by the pedal, inspect to see if it has dislodged from its correct position, in the mean time, instead of toying with the battery, you can simply unplug the switch or remove the fuse untill it is fixed. Good luck

Probably is a bad battery. Most of them start to die after 1 1/2 to 2 years. Try to use a jump start or another battery to verify. Good luck.

if you look above the break petal under the dash you will see a little switch attached to the petal. on most cars the switch is adjustable by pulling the pin out of the switch a bit and then putting it back in and pressing the break petal to re calibrate it. if that dosent work it may just be broken and needs replacement. also look around the break petal area under the dash and make sure nothing is keeping the petal from coming all the way back up

2000 Dakota battery problems


It's 100% possible bud. I've actually had a battery blow out on me at 3 days old. I was just driving to the store and I shut the car off. I went and got some stuff and came back to a 100% dead car. It had a new altenator and the battery was all but three days old. It was so dead that even the overhead light wouldn't come on. I got a jump start from a friend and made it to napa. They tested the battery and said it reads perfect until you try to draw energy from it.

They told me it was a shorting cell, and that the battery was shot. It was replaced for free; as should yours if you still have the warranty information.

Start with the simple first. Check the voltage in the battery. Some new batteries are not fully charged. Next, clean the battery cables. Make the connectors shine and put a little electrical grease on the connectors.
