    URGENT Help Please

    Does anybody know which fuse covers the rear brake lights?? On the way to work this morning all my rear brake lights failed. I have removed the fuse cover and want to check if its the fuse or brake switch, but I have left the handbook at home so can't tell which one it is.

    Any ideas people? I'm going to Scotland in it this weekend therefore need to get it sorted ASAP....

    Re: URGENT Help Please

    Just got my user manual out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] On my S3 it's number 13 - a 10amp fuse.

    Looking at the fuses after the lid's been taken off there are two distinct blocks - one big square one at the bottom and one above.

    On the one above, there are 4 columns of 4 fuses on the right hand side, number 13 is on the 3rd column in from the right, second one down.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Well after 20mins in my works car park I managed to get the switch off and bridge the 2 pins, and is if by magic the lights came on so it seems it is a blown switch. My bothers gonna pick me one up today which I'll fit tonight.

    audi-sport.net comes to the rescue again, cheers all!!

    From speaking to Audi parts department I think they might be. As soon as I said my brake lights don't work he immediatley said it was the switch (no mention of fuse/bulb etc) and spouted the part number as if he knew it off by heart. Its either wonderful customer service/support or they have had lots of requests for these.....

    I expect they're getting lots of requests for these, mine went a couple of weeks ago, but didnt take long to fix. Good luck...
