    Had a light come up on the driver info display (not within the clocks) at the top where the media info usually is, never seen it before and its not listed in the book so wondered if anyone can help? It looks like the "fault in brake system" or the "brake light failure" symbol in as much as its an orange circle within what looks like two brackets except that theres no exclamation mark (brake system fault) or bulb symbol (brake light) just a blank circle??
    Any help would be great!

    It's your front brake pads warning sensor.

    Worth a quick visual check as sometimes the wires to the sensors break.

    Hello there desperately need some help! I have the number 13 light come up on my a3 8l 1.8t but everything is working fine? Researched that this is break failure but there is nothing wrong with breaks or fluid. Tried unplugging the main break sensors and checked all over the calliper and can't see no problem . Any way I can get this warning light off without using a computer. Cheers

    lol!!!!

    well if you get the screen fixed you will know what it is... otherwise do it manually

    visual inspections of everything that the yellow warning symbol could be because who the hell knows what that could be!
