    The list could be endless! You need to get it on vagcom to find out where the problem is.
    On mine it was the yaw sensor under the centre dash.
    Could be the brake switch but iirc that brings up the abs light too.

    As per BlackQuat - VAG-COM it - best investment you can make on your Audi - will save you loads in the future.
    There maybe a forum member near you with VAG-COM for a quick scan?

    Most likely a brake light switch, but you will need VAG-com to confirm.

    23 quid inc vat for vagcom fault check, not bad me thinks, found that the sensor needs replacing and about 200 quid to fix it :(
