You have an electrical short either in the multi function switch for the lights or in the wiring harness for those circuts.

The turn signals for my 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI work great, except the clicking noise keeps going well after the turn has been made and the clicker turned off, etc. All the bulbs are in working...


More than likely you've got a short in the turn signal switch. I have replaced a few of them.
It's easy to replace, but you need some specific tools and getting the airbag out takes some practice.

Signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen


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'.

1998 VW TDI A/c not blowing cold air!


you may have a dampner issue with your climate control. the dampner is controlled by your Hot/Cold switch. if the dampner is stuck or not working you won't get one but the other. in your case maybe the dampner is stuck on hot, even tho the control says cold.
one possible solution may be a fuse... talk to a volkswagon guy and he'll be able to offer a suggestion or two.

Low beam headlights don't work

Click on the link.
This is for 03 jetta gls
There are fuses for left and right low beams. Headlights on low beam, use a test light, see if voltage on fuse circuit? If no voltage that will lead us back to dimmer switch or problem with wiring circuit from dimmer switch.
