Golf MK4 Rear Light Issues
« on: September 04, 2018, 12:41:21 pm »
So... On my MK4 GTI... my rear middle brake light is illuminated all the time on the edge most bulbs - when I press the brake, all the lights still come on... any ideas??

Check the cables on both side where they go from the body into the hatch.... Also check the grounding (brown wire).

Turns out both rear main brake bulbs had blown (puts head in hands with shame) - pretty clever tho...
