RE: 1990 Quattro Coupe Brake light- Dealer Dumb.

Could be a poor job of bleeding has introduced some air into the
hydraulic side of the bomb. I would have them pressure bleed it twice
(after all, they are dopes), and see if it goes away.

OTOH, the bomb may be DOA, in which case they should replace it.
