    Brake lights staying on

    Hi, my brake lights are staying on my mk 4. It started where they would stay on with the headlights on, i have checked the bulbs and replacef the brake pedal switch but still no joy!! The brake lights stay lit with lights on or off. Could it be a relay?? Im pretty sure looking at the wiring diagrams that there isnt a relay. One other thing was a cabbie told me that he noticed when i broke that my sidelights lit!!!!! This has now disapeared but this whole issue obviously needs resolving, can anyone help me??? Please??!!

    Did you change any bulbs recently?
    People have been known to accidentally fit a single contact bulb instead of a double contact type, which shorts out the two contcts between the side light & brakelight circuit causing strange symptoms like this.
