Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Blinker blinks fast, replaced bulb, it burned out too

The right blinker works fine. The left one was blinking fast, and the left rear bulb didn't work. I replaced the bulb and it worked fine for a couple of minutes, then the same thing happened again, bulb isn't flashing. Some people said maybe the flasher, but wouldn't that affect the right one too?

Most cars have separate flashers for each side now, and in fact, if it still blinks, even though faster than normal, there's probably a short circuit somewhere on the light wire where it's exposed and making contact with the frame of your car or some other metal part, which then causes the bulb to burn out.

What would cause the blinker to blink very fast and the left rear blinker doesn't work.


You obviously have a bad connection somewhere in the taillight. Some trucks it is a common problem and the taillight circuit board is the problem.

Left blinker is fast front blinker light working left rear blinker light not working.


When a turn signal bulb is blinking fast, it is an indicator that a bulb is bad in the system. Replace the left rear turn signal bulb, then see if the left front blinker has gone back to normal. This is most likely your problem. Let me know if it is still a problem and i will help you fix it. Good luck

Left blinker blinks faster than the right. which the back left blinker does not work and front left blinks really fast.Right blinker works normal?


Flasher relays relies on bulb wattage for the speed of the blink.
You probably just have a blown bulb in the left rear blinker.:)

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.

Left rear tail lights/ blinker will not come on


Blinker too fast, the same side blinker light bulb on the front (or back) is burned. Check the fuses for the rear lights. You might have a light bulb filament stuck.
