Blue Green is the indicator wire for the left rear, blue brown for the right rear. Assuming USDM.

If you are looking to figure out which wire goes to which, an easy way to figure this out is to have a source which produces 12vdc and has the two leads for (+) and (-) with probes attached, plus a pad and pencil to mark down what is what. After you have your 12v source and other supplies to get started, take the bulb section out of the housing so it looks ...

I'm going to answer this in a general way because for someone to tell you what the wires mean, they would need to follow this procedure, or have access to detailed wiring diagrams for your car. You'll need a multimeter for this, and you'll have to take apart the brake light as if you were changing the bulbs so you have access to the bulb sockets. I'm ...

There's one obvious device that controls all the interior lights, and that's the headlight switch/dimmer. On some VW cars, this is one large switch, and on others there is a separate dimmer. The dimmer is normally a horizontally mounted roller that you can roll up or down to dim the interior lights, or when rolled all the way to the "up" position it will ...

Since the lights came back on, this is not a fuse issue. If there was a short, it should had blown the fuse. Did the radio remain on? There is likely a loose wire somewhere, but unfortunately it is almost impossible to test while everything is working unless you can recreate the problem. A couple things I would try: Get a schematic, look for any ...

It certainly used to be possible to damage the mechanism. . Years ago, on my 1979 Renault 5, I managed to break the self cancellation mechanism just as you describe. A small nub on the steering column snapped off and the indicators never self cancelled again. The nub in question released a spring clip on the indicator stalk to enable it to return to the ...

In fact you are not damaging the wheel. I do have the same habit toggling the indicators while zigzag from left to right and right to left. Nothing had happened to my car indicator switch. If the trickling sound was very high while the indicator was engaged check the flasher relay, probably it need to be replaced.

You are describing symptoms of a bad ground in your electrical system. Check your ground on the battery. The negative post. Make sure you have a solid connection. The clamp on the negative shouldn't wiggle or have any play in it. Check for corrosion. The white powdery substance. If you find any remove the battery post clamp from the wire and use baking ...
