    Brake light switch

    Guys

    Last night my breaklights stopped working all of them, and just before they did it came up on my trip computer on the dash. At first i thought it was just one bulb but then noticed the rear window one went coming on either.

    When i was stationary i pumped the brake pedal a few times quite hard and they all came back on the went back off again.

    Is this the brake light switch under the brake steering wheel that needs replacing? I had this problem on one of my old cars.

    Where can i get one of these from, how much do they cost?

    A3 1.8t
    1996

    Thanks for that guys
    Do you think i need to take it out and then take it to Audi or can they source the part from my number plate?

    I think they have different ones like a 4 or 3 pin

    yep, there are 2 different types (2 pin church window type and 4 pin square type), don't do what i did and get the part, then take the car home, then find out that i had the wrong type!(i hate it when that happens!).i think 2 pin is pre-facelift and 4 pin is facelift.
