first check the bulbs on that side by visual or changing to the other side if you can't see that well if the bulbs from the front and back work or are good when checked the flasher has blown out on one side and you have to replace it other possible cause could be a broken wire for the right side lights so look at the connectors for that side front & back if all is good one more thing could do this the actual turn signal lever that you use to activate the signals could be bad for the right side especially if it does not go back to the normal position after making a turn and the steering wheel rotates back to it's normal position but the turn signal lever does not click back to the center position this would burn out that side from the signal constantly being on good luck stephen
flasher/blinker is busted. this is located under your dash board. remove steering column cover, turn on LEFT turn signal (yes, the one that is working), then you will hear a clicking sound. locate the relay that causes the sound. there you can see 2 relays (one for LEFT, other one for RIGHT turn),replace busted one.
Does the front and rear light on the right side come on when you activate the switch ? If a light is out the system won't flash. If one side comes on and the other does not, the problem is usually in the turn signal switch.
are you sure that you put the right bulb in? Some of these bulbs look very similar, (like a 3057 and 3157 or 3156) but they are different. A customer came in with this problem and the problem was that they put a bulb with a single filament in when it was supposed to have a dual filament. the bulbs looked the same and they just grabbed them off the shelf instead of asking the parts guy what their vehicle called for.
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'.
