I own a used VW Golf IV, 98, 1.4. I am facing a really strange issue the last few days. When I turn my hazzards on, every bulb works well and on time. When I signal left it works too. The problem is when I try to signal right. None of the right blinkers light up, my dashboard right blinker indicator stays off and the flashing sound is faster than normal.

Any ideas why ?

Thank you in advance

It sounds as though the turn signal switch has gone bad. The contacts inside the switch are probably just worn out. Not sure on your Golf, but I believe these are pretty easy to purchase and to replace.

  • Thank you for your time. This indeed seems like a faulty switch. I've done my online search and I can't say that the fix is expensive. Jun 13, 2016 at 12:29
  • @KonstantinosKoletsas - Not only should it not be an expensive fix, it should be relatively easy to do as a DIY project. Jun 13, 2016 at 21:02
