Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat

I don't have turning signals that function. I do I change the turning signal bulbs? The turning lights operate for a few seconds, and then they stop.  I don't know if I have a light bulb problem of some other problem.

    The rear driver side door of my car doesn't close all the way. It is left ajar just enough to notice. I can hear more road noise as well. I think it may be the latch but was wondering if anyone else had the same problem and what did they do to fix it.

You may need to replace the hazard switch inside the car. I had the same problem a few weeks back and bought a new hazard button. You should be able to pop out the old one and put in the new one by yourself. You can find the switch for about $20.00 online or if you don't want to wait probably about $30 at your local dealer

Do you know what a lighting control module is ?
Turn Signal and Hazard Lamps The turn signal system consists of:
  • turn signal miniature bulbs (13465)
  • lighting control module
  • multi-function switch (13K359)
  • indicator bulbs in the virtual image instrument cluster (10849)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
Turn signal system operates as follows:
  • The multi-function switch is protected by fuse junction panel Fuse 3 (10A). This fuse is hot in RUN.
  • Circuits 104 (LB/O) and 105 (R/W) connect lighting control module to the left and right turn signal switches of the multi-function switch.
  • Ground is provided to the lighting control module and the turn signal miniature bulbs through Circuit 57 (BK).
  • Turn signal functions are performed by double filament bulbs in lamp assemblies located next to the headlamps.
  • The turn/hazard function utilizes the second filament of the appropriate bulb(s).
  • With the multi-function switch in the right turn position, power is supplied to the RH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the RH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • With the multi-function switch in the left turn position, power is supplied to the LH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the LH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ?
Section 17-01: Lighting, Exterior 1997 Continental Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Procedure revision date: 07/29/1996 Turn Signal Lamps/Hazard Warning Flasher Lamps
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the turn signal/hazard flasher lamps to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged multi-function switch.
    • Circuitry open/shorted.
    • Fuse junction panel fuses:
      • 1 (10A)
      • 3 (10A)
      • 7 (15A)
      • 13 (15A)
      • 19 (10A)
      • 20 (10A)
      • 25 (10A)
      • 31 (15A)
    • Power distribution box Fuse 16 (20A)
    • Bulb open.
  1. If inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If a concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test CA. If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test CA.
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Unless you have a scan tool that can check for DTC'S an know how to use a wiring diagram an DMM - digital multi-meter to test electrical circuits .

My left turn signal started to only work about 50% of the time, it wont work hardly at all now. the right turn signal is fine. When I try to use the left turn signal, there is no dash indicator lights


Hey Bob how's it going ? I have been looking at Chevy service info for your vehicle and this a little on the complex side or that is the way it sounds from the turn signal description !
Turn Signal Lamps
The smart flasher (GMSF) is an automotive flasher designed to accept turn, hazard, and brake inputs. The GMSF will provide corresponding outputs to the exterior lamps and instrument panel turn signal indicator lamps. This lighting system has dedicated lamps for the turn/hazard functions and dedicated lamps for the brake function. The system incorporates the use of flash rates for diagnostics. The flash rate is a calculation of the number of flashes that occur within a 60 second period. This system uses a percentage of on-time to off-time called duty cycle. For the bulb outage condition, the indicator of the vehicle side on which the outage occurs shall assume bulb outage flash rate mode. The opposite side indicator will assume the normal flash rate mode for an input from the non bulb outage side of the vehicle. Hazard warning lamp outage will maintain a normal flash rate as long as 2 or more exterior signaling lamps are functional. During all modes of operation, the IPC will receive the same flash rates and duty cycles that the exterior lamps receive. The IPC will then control the indicators in the cluster. The vehicle operator will be provided with an audible and visual indication of the flasher operation. Below is a table with flash rates and duty cycles:
Are all your bulbs good ?
Operating Condition
Flash Rate
Duty Cycle
Normal
75 to 105 flashes per minute
45% to 55%
Turn Signal Lamp Outage
2 or 3 times faster than normal flash rate
35% to 55%

1995 GMC Suburban XLT 4x4 SLT. the top break light works but not the sides. Also the turn signals are not working. Have checked fuses and changes bulbs..What can this be


Turn signals are one of the easiest systems in your car to troubleshoot. Your signal flashers either work or they don't. If they don't, either you need to change the bulbs or you need to replace your turn signal relay. Know more about car diagnostic tools for automobile.

I need to find the flasher relay for a grand marquis 2001 .does it has one? My turn signals wont work I can hear the sound but don't even flash


Yes, it does have a flasher, although it may be a combined unit with the hazard flashers relay. So you hear the clicking of the flasher relay? That seems to indicate the relay is working properly. Have you checked the bulbs and the turn signal fuse? Any turn signal bulbs light up anywhere, front or back?
How about your brake lights, do they work? Your car may have separate, stand alone turn signals in the rear, but many American cars use the same bulb and same filament on the bulb for the brake lights and turn signals. If your merc is like this and the brake lights work, then the bulb must be good.
Turn on the hazard flashers and see if all bulbs work and flash at each corner of the car. This would be the same bulb as for the turn signals. If they work, it could be a bad turn signal switch, may even be the flasher relay somehow malfunctioning, and in a few cases, a bad hazard switch can affect the turn signal switch. Check fuses and bulbs first. If you have any type of body control module that controls lights and other accessories, you may have to investigate that. I know I'm not being very helpful, just throwing out a few suggestions. Good luck.

My blinkers don't work on my car at all and my fuse is fine.


There are several things that can cause your blinkers to not function properly. This could be caused by a defective flasher unit, a malfunctioning turn signal switch, or a broken wire, just to name a few. Electrical system diagnostics must be performed to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.
