Ron,I have a 2004 VW...
Ron,I have a 2004 VW Phaeton. I need help with the exterior lights. All three brake lights lamps inop. with code 01344 in 29-Light Control Left. Key off/headlight switch on - no left tail lights. R&L tail lights work with key on. No codes in 39-Right Light Control. Diags would definitely be helpful. I'm gaining access to brake switch.Thanks

My #1 concern is the stop lights. I'm trying to get to the switch. But, wow is it up in there!!!

the brake light switch is a b#$%@ to get to !!

let me get the info and will get back

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

wait a sec so you do not have any brake lights with the key off but with the key on it works?

or are you taking about the tail lights not working?

if that is the case did you scan 09 module to see if there is any faults?

thanks

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

thanks

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No brake lights or reverse lights at all
Did you scan 09 and 46 modules ? Any codes?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm headed home for the evening. But, first thing I'd like to start with getting to the brake light switch
With a scan you may not need the switch. Work smart not work hard. That is why I requested scans from 46 and 09 modules
Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

Mike any new updates need assistance to take that brake light switch out?
