1999 1.8t / Problem with the 3rd brake light. Whenever the headlights are turned the 3rd light shines constantly. If I apply the brakes it does shine brighter .It is performing the same function as the rear brake lights, but it looks as if I’m riding my brakes all the time. Luckily I haven’t been pulled over yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any idea what could be wrong. Thanks

Your left and right tail/brake lights are dual filament bulbs. Might be a bad bulb or the bulbs may not be dual filament bulbs. Do your left and right tail lights work when you turn on your headlights? Do your left and right brake lights work when you apply the brake? Pull one tail/brake light bulb out and see if 3rd light lights when you turn on headlight. Do the same thing on the other side.
