Either the relay itself has jammed or the flasher arm is broken in one position. Much more likely to be the relay. But before replacing the relay, check the fuses that supply it as if the supply is interupted, can cause it to "lock" in one position

Dip beam


The main beam isn't designed to "dip" to oncoming traffic. When you "dip" the beams, it's the high beam that drops out until you click it back to high again. If you have the optional automatic vehicle approach system (NOT just auto headlights) the high beams will dip automatically to oncoming traffic and then go back to high beam again after the oncoming traffic passes.

Gitting gti lights


The wiring is different, if your Golf had headlights with H4 bulbs then changing to high beam turns dip off. The GTi has separate dip and high lights, on high beam dip stays on (all 4 bulbs on).

Head lights wont turn off


if you are saying the front side lights are going off but the headlights remain on ? then could you try this ? put the h/lights on main beam mode then whilst on main beam turn off lights if h/lights go off now ? then with lights still off put onto dipped beam with the switch/stick if h/light come on it is most probably the dipped beam headlights relay that has gone faulty as the h/lights have 2x relays 1for dip +1 for main beam if the above does not make any difference ? it may well be the switch assy hope this helps
