Best Answer

most brake switches have a method to adjust the position of the switch. check to see. it it dose, make the adjustment, and continue adjusting until the problem is resolved. the other possiblity is that the mounting bracket for the switch was bent at some point. hope it helps. duboff

Had the same problem with mine. The dealership told me it was the backup light switch. I had the same problem, as do 99% of VW beetle owners. There was a recall on the Brake Light Switch. Call your dealer and they should change it for free. I did. It worked for a bit, but now i think one of my brake lights is out again.
