I doubt a dealer could get one , but give it a try, otherwise I would go to German ebay or take it off get the part number and put it google you never know!

As for break Light circuit, I would say you have a brake light out?

Let me get this correct: BRAKE LT CIRCUIT is this the exact wording.

If this is correct, you have a sensor warning that your break pads/shoes are low or one of the sensors has a broken wire, only found by taking the wheel off, best advice take it to a tyre place and get the pads checked out.

As I would say LT stands for LIMIT.
