SOURCE: I have a 2005 Jetta Tdi and both of my headlights

ljohnston: I reviewed all the technical service bulletins for the two Jetta turbo diesel's offered for that year and neither had listed any problems answering your description. I can offer you some suggestions as to where to start looking based on past experience in general on many makes and model cars I have worked on.
1st, check the charging system to make sure it is not over charging. Excessive voltage will burn the bulbs out fairly fast.
2nd. German cars were especially bad about ground problems. Most German cars including yours, use BROWN wires for the ground circuits.Additionally the actual tailight fixtures in which the bulbs fit in on may of the German cars we pretty poorly designed leading to connection problems. People sometimes thinking a bulb was out would replace it and even though the replacement bulb worked, it was actually the act of moving the fixture that made the light bulb work. Problem being bad grounds. Some of the grounds even lead to the connections getting hot and in certain situations actually melted the fixtures..
To clean the connections, you can get steel wool, fine sand paper or scotch brite. Scuff the mating surfaces and reconnect them.
As for the main ground connections I would look at, here are their locations: Under the battery tray, the main ground cable. Keep in mind, thee alternator looks at the demand from the electrical system and the state of charge the battery is in. Electricity doesn't travel through the wires, it travels around the outer surfaces of the wire! Corrosion on cables take place on the outsides of wires. Do the math. If the alternator has poor connections or a floating ground, you can get voltage spikes which could potentially blow bulbs and other components.
you have a few grounds located near and on the the fire wall. One is located on the left apron jest behind the shock tower. You have a ground inside the car down near the left lower pillar just near the front door opening. Inside the trunk, look to the left of the left trunk hinge on the inner structure. There are other grounds in the system, but these would be the primary ones I woulc be going after based on the references I have. Another thing which is food for thought: There are bulbs being sold which are "CHEAPLY" made in China and other Asian countries. There are good quality ones made by the Japanese, Germans, other European countries and the good "OLE" USA!
BUY QUALITY! The cheap ones are quite prone to vibration failure and also have much shorter life spans.
I hope I might have helped some in your quest to solve your problem. Let me know hope you make out. If you need more input, I'll be happy to give you more.

SOURCE: how to replace both headlight bulbs (lowbeam) on jetta 2006?

i would imagine that the bulbs would fit directly into the original harness for the original headlamp bulbs. wear rubber gloves while handling them and open the hood look for the back of the origional headlamps and once found turn them either clockwise or counterclockwise which ever allows movement and once turned as far as they can go pull towards the rear of the car. you should see the old bulb and be able to wiggle it out or pull away the plastic clamps holding the bulb in once removed insert the new bulbs in the place of the old ones and replace them the same way they were taken out.

SOURCE: signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen

The bulbs on these cars can be delicate. Some get replaced every year or so-( headlights, tail and brake) and some I've never touched in 8 years (my front turn signals and marker lights)

The fast blinking occurance is normal when a turn signal bulb goes out.

The rear lights are common to blow, I keep spares in the glovebox.

Make sure you were given the correct bulb, check to see that it works and isn't defective. Also there is an empty spot in the rear bulb holder- make sure you didn't mistakenly pop a bulb in there cause' it won't work.

The front right signal light is in the right headlight housing. Open the hood and on the back of the housing there are two plastic caps. One is curved and one is rectangular- you want to take off the rectangular one.

Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash there's a cover. This is the main fuse block. Use a coin or carefully with a screwdriver pry it open. To check a fuse pull it out, noting exactly where it came from, and visually inspect it to see if it is blown.

Fuse # 2- turn signal system
Fuse #4- License plate lights
Fuse #7- back up lights
Fuse #13- brake lights
Fuse #22- parking and side marker lights, right
Fuse #23- parking and side marker lights, left

The turn signal flasher is integrated into the hazzard button in the center of the dash. If all else is good and you suspect the flasher is bad, which is a good possibility, call a VW dealer and have them run your VIN# to check for recalls. The hazzard switch for some cars around your year had a recall on em'.

I have sourced out all fuses and bulbs, yet continue to have a rapid right turn signal. I don't know where else to look. help?

replace the right rear bulb. the quick flashing indicates a bad bulb. it could be a wiring problem to the rear for the signal light that you will have to check out starting at the socket and working forward.

Right turn signal flashes faster than the normal interval on the left

Usually one of the globes is blown if not I would try WD40 or similar product and take the globes out and squirt the connections where they contact it might be slightly dirty or moisture in and around the globes electrickery likes to be clean. cya Neil

Has the car been in a fender bender ? check for wiring going to the front and rear lights to see if on has rubbed into a ground wire or the body. ( even if there has been no accident.)

Right turn signal lights flash very fast

check to see if the front or rear bulb is burned out most of the time one bulb burns out causing a faster flash on that side.

Town and counrty front right signal light flashing faster, rear light stop flashing

the signal indicator lights are suppose to flash in perticular time interval which is connected to a timer relay when the light flashes faster that means the other light is not working and the relay is getting double the current and moving faster so check the other light either the bulb is fuse or the current is not reaching up to the bulb

2004 buick lasabre, right side turn signal blinking fast.

Check the front turn signal bulbs. This will affect the resistance in the circuit and cause the working light to flash at a much faster rate.

At first my front right hand turn signal wasnt working. my husband thought that the bulb burned so we bought one..but when he went to change it he noticed it was the wrong one..and also when he lifted the...

Not expensive, Go back under the Hood and compare the wiring positions on the Left hand bulb to the RH. If this is all correct, then check the Ground connection of that lamp. When the Headlights are ON, the RH turn signal, is tacking a Ground from that Headlamp.

Good luck. DT

Signal lights flash faster than normal, back signals work front ones do not, front lights work when head/parking lights turned on.

The fast signal flashing indicates that you have a burned bulb (or one of the bulb elements is burned).
Based on your saying it's the front one on the side your flasher control is set when the signal light flash faster

By a new bulb light and replace the faulty one
hope it will help

when a turn signal indicator flashes faster than is normal it is your vehicles way of telling you there is a problem with the lighting system, do a visual check of your turn signals and you will find a burned out bulb. just replace the bad one and it will return to normal
