Have had my V for 9 years; last April I had to replace the brake stoplight switch for the first time in ownership as brake lights not working but new bulbs. No relay to the light-out sensor light on dash either. Now less than one year later, having same symptoms: no brake lights even though bulbs are good, and no indication that a light is out on the dash. Sound like a bum part? Or a part that just wears out quicker? Is this going to keep on happening? Anyone with experience with this prob please help!
