    Had the same thing on my Avant recently. Check for moisture in the bulb holder wiring connector.

    Take the bulbs out and clean contacts and bulbs with a fine scotchbrite or something, just intermittent connections

    That sounds to me light your brake light switch needs replacing, VCDS should confirm this. Mine has just started playing up and the other night there was a bright red glow outside my house, it was my car with it's brake lights stuck on! Not good for the battery!
