I have a 98' Audi A4 and I am experiencing a faulty left side brake light. I thought it was the actual light assembly so I replaced the board and that did not fix it. I took a power probe at the beginning of the circuit on the female side of the connector (the connector was unplugged) and applied voltage to the circuit which indeed lit up the brake light. I then plugged it in and applied voltage on the male side of the connector and did not see the light, so I am assuming it needs a pin replacement at that junction, my questions is has anyone had this problem or assume the same thing as me, that it would be the pin on the male side of the connector? Any help would be appreciative.
