Is it legal in France to not have the licence plate lighting not working?

Having said that, it would be a lot easier to answer your question if you post an Auto-Scan of your S3

yes is not legal, i will repair it with time but i not want this warning on dash now ;)

the license plate lighting works except when I start the engine, I noticed that it goes out when I slightly open the trunk then turns on again when the trunk is half open, I think a bad electrical contact

yes is not legal, i will repair it with time but i not want this warning on dash now ;)
That's a bad idea. The warning is your incentive to actually fix the problem.

I noticed that it goes out when I slightly open the trunk then turns on again when the trunk is half open, I think a bad electrical contact
Sounds more like a classic case of the cable being weakened leading to partial fracture and intermittent continuity where it passes between the body and the trunk lid.

Just because the wires are in a sleeve does not prevent them being damaged, history on here and many other VAG owners websites proves that.

IMHO it's time to do a physical and visual check on the wires.

How long would you have ignored the problem if you could have made the warning go away? ;)

Without a better understanding why the wire broke, it is difficult to answer that.

hi,

i buy this car 10 days ago with this problem but seller not say to me times driving with this problem, removing all covers i see guy already remove it ...

i am in holidays so i take time to check it ;)

the wire broken because the cable path is poorly designed, it makes a U which deviates when you open the trunk of the car

It does not seem like the wires are too short there, but that the type of wire used is less than optimal for the application -- repeated bending and unbending in a tight radius at that point. If you want a really long-lasting repair, replace the section that of wires that is subject to that bending with better wire -- ideally high strand-count, with silicone insulation. Amazon has many choices:
