Audi A4 1999

Safety incident date:
Oct 26, 1999
Location:
Lake Zurich, IL

the brake lights do not activate upon light braking. the dealer insists that the brake light switch is adjusted to its maximum range. a conscious effort is required to insure sufficient brake pedal travel to activate the brake lights. my concern is the potential for rear-end collisions resulting from the brake lights not being illuminated. the dealer has had two opportunities to correct the problem but says no further adjustment is possible.

like many other people who own an audi s4 with 50,000 miles, i am having brake light issues. only mine are much more severe that what i have read thus far. i took my car in for it's 60000, and had the mechanic check the brake light. leading up to the repair, i had been *losing brake fluid* almost monthly. this should never happen, for any reason. but, my mechanic took three hours and discovered that the battery was leaking sulphuric acid onto my brake line, my power steering line, and my clutch line. he stated, "only a mechanical moron would house the metal and steal cables underneath sulphuric acid." consequently, i cannot drive my car any more and the repairs inlcude the taking out of the entire engine to get to the source, which may/may not be able to be fixed. mechanic stated that this should be a recall issue, and that the safety issue on this type of design-flaw is obvious and certain. i expect audi will not cover this defect, causing me to shell out, are you ready for this, 2-3,000 bucks to get it replaced. damn the man. i'll post more when i know more.*ak
