brake light failure, try replacing the bulbs, just being daft here but you checked the brake lights are working?

Surely it has to do with the braking .. As all circles with brackets on the outside are brake related (orange or red)
This is a right mystery!

Brake light bulbs might be on their way out/ corroded/ loose. Also could be related to a faulty brake light switch so worth doing a VCDS scan.

Shooting in the dark here (as usual) but when pressing the check button in the dashboard (the button next to the odometer/trip reset button) doesn't it introduce this symbol? I see your screen has a bunch of pixels missing so it might be unreadable, but maybe you could make something out.

Usually when pressing the check button, it introduces a bunch of symbols and says what they're about, but I cannot remember whether it introduced all of them or just the more critical ones. Worth a shot I guess.

This is the Brake Light Failure symbol......IIRC the rear bulbs have two filaments inside each bulb (side lights and brake lights).
