    Usually built into the DIS if you have it... S3's come with a DIS as std but some A3's it was an option IIRC...

    yeh i got dis... when i changed boot catch i noticed some little sensor/switch which looked a little corroded (as was boot catch). since then i been wondering what its for. do you have a "door locked" light too? as i had to lock my car from inside to keep boot closed. (before i fixed catch) On ignition i notice a orange warning light. a little car with a key going through it. thinking the sensor/switch thingy in the boot catch could be related??

    Mine has one but it doesn't work when the boot light decides not to work. Common problem is the rear wash leaks into the boot catch and stops it working. Does your boot light work?

    Hmm tom, you got me on one again! lol maybe next time (for what ever reason) you take your tailgate trim off again, you could unplug your sensor and see if you door warning light works!!
