    Hi guys I bought an s3 today 51 plate, its got a couple of little problems but one that is really annoying is the middle brake light is stuck on the main two in the lights work ok, it's giving me a warning on the dis every time I take my foot of the brake pedal, does anyone have any ideas what could cause this ?

    Cheers Chris.

    I dunno tbh sounds like some sort of circuit that's causing it to stay permanently on. Checked your brake switch? The tailgate spoiler light sounds dodgey and worth having a look at. Disconnect it, then reconnect it, see if that works. Did that once on a range at work and worked a charm :)

    Just had a quick look to make sure it was still on and it only comes on when the lights are switched on, very strange I think.

    Main lights? Im guessing here but you changed your bulbs? Might be some short circuit.
