    AFAIK there isn't a separate warning for the centre rear brake light?

    What symbol are you seeing on the DIS?
    2006 RS4 Avant (Phantom Black), RNS-E (2010 version inc SDS, HW 070, SW 0220) with AMI (250GB hard disk), Bluetooth + iPhone 5

    I had this on my 54 plate cabrio, did some reasearch and apparently where the wiring loom passes through to the boot lid it is common to get a break in the wire due from it opening and closing frequently. This was in my case shortly followed by a lack of radio signal as the aerial is also fitted inside the boot lid and the cable passes through the same place... Quoted 425.00 from stealers to repair!! Its common and know of several identical situations but sorry don't know the remedy!!

    Thanks ,

    I have pulled the wires through a bit more into the boot lid so its bending in a diffarant place , the fault seems to have gone away now its not been on for a week and before it was on every day at some time .

    thanks cobbsy and petrol dave for your advice ( dave there was an orange symbol and it said centre brake light below)
