Hi all,
I recently acquired an 07 A8L that has developed a little gremlin with the rt rear running light. When I turn on my headlights, the rt rear tail lights will illuminate as they should for a few seconds, then off for a few seconds, then back on for a few seconds then off totally, and I get a brake light warning on the dash. I flip flopped the outer lights to rule out the assembly is bad(it works like it should when plugged in the drivers side). I also cleaned the grounds by the battery as I read that can cause issues some times. Scanned with VCDS and here are the codes stored for the brake light/tail light. The brake lights and blinkers work normally. I could use some help deciphering the codes.....
Thanks in advance!
