Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta
I just bought a 99 jetta, car runs fine but it has blinker issues, when i hit the turn signal all the blinkers and hazard lights blink repeatedly. Any ideas? Thanks
Yeah, I have run it to this problem as well. I was on my way back from a trip and the blinker relay switch started working on its own. Having worked for SWF I thought it was the directional or signal switch that built up copper from contact to contact and causes it to come on and off....... I have not figured it out yet. I did replace the hazard switch which works together with the blinkers but this did not fix it. I did notice that this comes from the same manufacturer as the previous switch and it from a manufacturing date of 2005! So this issue has not been probably corrected yet. Yes it has come to light that the switch clicks more when cold as well! It is super irretating to me as well.... sorry cant turn up the radio on this one......... Honestly I think it is the copper traces inside the blinker switch itself that cause a contact and make the switch click............next I am going to replace the blinker switch! This should cast some $87 at the dealer...... replaced it on my other Jetta since the cruise control did not work. This is a rather more complicated type of job since the steering wheel needs to come off!!!!!!! Make sure you have the correct tool to remove the AIRBAG..... this should be a bend type of screw-driver the angle should be 90 degrees and with a shortened handle otherwise this airbag will not come loose! The rest should be straight forward as to replacing the switch! Good luck and if I find out more I will let you know.

The problem sounds like it is in the turn signal switch, not the relay. I have replaced hundreds of these.

I replaced the hazard switch relay, still no good, and replaced all the bulbs
