Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Blinker keeps clicking

I have an '02 Beetle TDI.  Recently, the blinker has started to click, click, click, after the blinker has stopped blinking.  It will click dozens of times over a minute or so, then stop, then click at random times after that.   It is very annoying.  I try to turn the radio up, but it's always there.
My mechanic has replaced the clicker (I forget what they call it), and it keeps doing it.
Any thoughts?
Joel

if it green wire flashes with test lamp the blinker module is good

Blinker wont click/blink


If the right side works correctly than you have a burnt out bulb on the left side. Compare the bulbs that are blinking on the right side to the bulbs that are not blinking on the left side. You should be able to figure out what bulb is not working.

The blinker clicking sound won't stop when blinkers are off


Hello, you need to replace the flasher. It is located under the dash on the driver's side near the top of the brake pedal.


Thanks for using FixYa!

Blinker clicking noise keeps clicking even when blinker is not blinking 2004 grand am


Signal switch needs to be cleaned or replaced. Copper particles get dragged into dielectric grease then this causes a bridging of power acting as if the switch is still on.

2001 Olds Silouhette - The blinker on the dash blinks quickly


NO PROBLEM TURN ON THE RIGHT BLINKER THEN WALK AROUND THE CAR MAKE SURE FRONT AND REAR BULBS ARE FLASHING... IF YOU HAVE A BULB OUT YOU WILL NOT OFFER ENOUGH OF A LOAD TO THE FLASHER... WILL CAUSE IT TO FLASH FAST... IF OK THEN MAKE SURE THE PROPER BULB NUMBER ON BULBS AND MAKE SURE CORRECT BULBS USED IN VEHICLE.... IF OK CHANGE FLASHER

Right rear brake light and blinker dont work


when you use the right turn signal, does it blink faster?. Could it be the bulb holder is damaged or rusty?

2001 vw beetle blinkers wont work


your flasher module has gone bad. on the new beetles, the hazard button is the flasher. you should be able to purchase on at your local dealer for around $25-$30.

Blinkers


If you can turn the blinker on left or right and the light comes on but doesn't blink......Open the drivers door, there is a fuse box, On the side of the dash.. The relay willl be a small silver canister looking relay in with the fuses.. put your finger on it and turn the blinker on.. you should feel and hear a click...( With the key in the on position ).. That is what needed replaced if it doesn't keep clicking...Thats the turn signal relay... What makes it blink.......Hope this helps..
Please rate this solution if it helps... Thank You.....
