vito brake lights - relay???

Hi

Both my rear brake lights are not working (not ideal) - it is deffinitly not the bulbs, pretty sure it isn't the switch and my friend tells me he had something similar with his VW and it turned out to be the relay.

Only problem is I have no idea which relay controls the brake lights (if indeed there is one). It is a RHD 108D 1998.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check the switch at the top of the pedal

What Vito do you have? If you have a W638 then it could be a relay. Things are a little more complicated in the W639 as it's all controlled by the signal aquisition module (SAM)

Thanks for the advice - the switch looks fine (I actually bypassed it and it still didn't work). I'm not too sure about which type it is - I know it as a 108D - made in 1998.................

looked under the seat next to the battery and it appears to have several small black boxes there - I think these are relays - but obviously I have no idea which one is which to try and replace one...........

I got exactly the same problem. Where could the relay be located and how can I distinguish it?

(right now there is no brake lights, brake swich and all other lights are working and when I checked brake wires from brake swich there is voltage in these wires, 0,5V, and when I measured amperage, there was 0,6A current...strange)
