    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default Switch

    Since I've had the car - Year in January - I have received this warning tonight) and about 5-6 other times:

    'Check Brake Light Switch'

    I was once fortunate and it happened when I was reversing into a parking space where I could see the brake lights in my mirrors and the message popped up but the lights were all working.

    Is the message telling me there is a fault with the switch and that it should be looked at or is it telling me that the car itself is performing a check?

    Like I see say it only pops up now and then, but don't want to be rear ended because the switch never worked to turn on my brake lights!!

    Has anyone else suffered this?

    Any help would be most appreciated

    Remove all the bulbs and double check them. Not sure if you know but the vec will use another bulb if a brake light fails, so it may look like they are all working. While you have them out clean all the terminals incase its a bad connection in there. hth
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    Wouldn't that throw on the bulb failure though, and not switch issue?

    Does the switch need resetting (you'll have to do a search on here about it), something to do with the plunger position.
