2007 Volkswagen New Beetle had third brake light go out now EPC light on

Is anyone knowlegeable with Volkswagen Beetles and the EPC warning light? My wife took it to the dealer and they said the clutch switch and the brake switch are out, but could this be causing the third brake light to go out also?

I'm a little lost.

What do you mean by "causing the third brake light to go out also" ?

If the brake switch is broken then the third brake light won't work and it's very likely you'll get the EPC light.

if the brake switch is bad typically you will lose brake lights, yes. are you sure it's just the 3rd light? when i had a similar issue i had no brake lights at all.
