 I've never heard of one. Most more modern cars I worked on use a switch 
that works around the brake pedal arm pin  to master push rod . It would be 
difficult rather impossible on VW . You can't use just a on/off plunger 
switch since as the pads and shoes wear the pedal has more movement and 
would break the switch also prevent full braking..

 As soon as you step on the brake the pressure alone should activate the 
switch and thus the light's unless there is an issue with the switches or
