Brake pedal switch replacement

Recommended Posts

I am posting this hoping it will benefit someone. I have a 2003 996 c2 cab. Recently the brake lights went out. After screwing with the brake pedal switch, I discovered that it needed to be replaced. Manually depressing switch with my finger showed that this was an intermittent problem. The interesting part of this is that I found that when the switch went out, neither the hazard flashers nor the cruise control would work. After replacing the switch, all these problems resolved. The switch is in a hard to reach location {of course}. While I could visualize the switch by lying on my back in the driver's side footwell, I had no room to manipulate. After a couple of hours of frustration and cursing, I found that I could manipulate and change the switch by sitting in the driver's seat and blindly removing and replacing the switch.

      For some reason my front drivers side speaker was going in and out then cut out completely. As a result I swapped out the speaker with another 4" speaker.  I kept the existing plug and cut everything else out. I used the ring from the original to hold it down, but I cut small slots for the new speakers feet. Here are the photos but I did not make many notes. 

      After I install the speaker I noticed that it did not work but did work with volume turned up high. I tested it with the other front jack before soldering it all together. I also add a dab of plastic glue on sides since there was no screw.   I had a hack saw but did not use it. The mini dremel was cool.

      It might be worth noting that the red and yellow wires on the head unit needed to be reversed despite the diagram. Just look at the Crutchfield website and you will see it. I also swapped out the radio. I am going to sell it. It was a CDR-210. I am suspecting  that my problem is the amp and that particular channel.  Forgive the pictures I had shared it on my Facebook Story lol ?

      Hi Porsche Gurus
      I’m trying to troubleshoot a little issue I have that just my drivers door courtesy lights (and drivers sunvisor light but not sure if that’s different issue) don’t work, both the red and white ones and only the one door(rhd car) 
      now ive checked the common things like all the fuses and the wiring to see if they were damaged or corroded but they seem fine,
      The one thing I would like to check but can not find any info on is where or what is the switch or sensor that tells the lights that the door is open to turn the lights on? 
      If I can find that then that will at least eliminate all manual fixes that I can think of unless any of you have come across this before, if it’s something simple and I look like a fool for not thinking of it then I’m happy to be a fool as long as the lights work:)
      any help would be much appreciated 
      thanks

      I'm a proud new owner of a 1999 C4.  Love the car.  However, my blinkers don't work and I recently replaced the hazard relay, but still nothing.  I noticed that hazard switch, when I press it, it does not click nor change position.  My next move was to replace this switch, but I first wanted to be sure that the switches normal behavior is to indeed click, or changes positions, when you press it?  Sounds like a stupid questions, but I thought I would check with one of you have a working switch.

      The key is stuck in the ignition of my 97 986.  Gently added a lubricant and managed to get it to the "off" position however it will not come out.  Disconnected the battery (leaving trunk open).  Any advice regarding repairing this myself?  Read that audi parts could be used.  All advice welcome
