Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
Hi if you check where the brake pedal is pivoted under dash you will see the brakelight switch ? it is screwed into the box section and has a 2x wire plug to it this switch has aplunger in it which contacts the b/pedal and as pedal is pressed the plunger moves out and makes the connection to put b/lights on then pedal released the plunger is pushed back so lights go off what may be wrong is either plunger is broken off or just simple wear on plunger which is easily rectified by unplug of wires/plug then screw the switch in a a couple of turns ? then check with pedal off ? the plunger is pushed back? reconn the plug then if lights are off press pedal till lights come on pedal movement approx 3/4 " this is simple trial/error adjusting till you are happy ? hope this helps?
