3rd Brake Light warning light

Postby EarlGrey » Sun Jan 07, 2018 11:10 am

I have a dashboard warning light suggesting a fault with the 3rd (high level) LED brake light (2013 1.4Tsi). As far as I can see it's working fine. Any ideas what this can be or how I can clear the fault message?

Thanks

OK...so for the benefit of others..it went into VW today and it turns out the LED strip is dimmer than it should be hence the warning light. Replacement cost quoted at an eye-watering £350-400!....mostly labour to get at it apparently. Fortunately it is covered by the Das Welt used car warranty :) ...after an argument that it was an electrical component that had failed and not a bulb!!
