Passat Turn Signal Clicking

When using the turn signal, especially left turn, it triggers a spasm of clicking noises...then quits for a while only to return again. Some days it doesn't do it at all. Then returns with a vengence!

I had this same problem and the only way to fix it without sending a boat load of money is to stop by your local automotive store and buy some "Electrical contact cleaner". Spary it into the blinker lever hole on the steering column. use a lot and at every angle you can. this will solve.

The directional switch has a loose connection that causes the clicking noise. It sounds like a relay clicking on z& off I know. All you can do is to replace the directional switch to eliminate this noise

Is the hazards relay used part of turn signal?


The hazard switch is also the device that supplies the turn signal "flash". If you continue to hear the noise of the turn signal flashing when the turn signals off than the problem is the turn signal switch. It is grounding The purple wire from the hazard switch which makes the hazard switch think the turn signal is on. The fix for this is to relace the turn signal/multi-function switch. Typically they will start to go bad in stages. Your symptom is the first stage. Eventually either the turn signals or the brake lights will also sto working. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

This sounds like your turn signal relay is sticking. If it is sticking it does not matter the position of your turn signal arm. Check the relay. It will be in your fuse box under the hood.

My passenger side turn signal blinks double time, what do i need to do to fix it?


Check that the bulbs are lighting and if they don't replace as needed. If they are fine the turn signal flasher is bad. Replace the flasher and the problem is fixed. If you have to replace the flasher the easy way to find it is turn your turn signal on on listen for the clicking . Find the clicking and you found your flasher.

Clicking noise from the blinker wont turn off!


There are 2 common things that cause this.
1. the hazzard flasher is faulty. the hazzard button and the turn signal flasher are all in one. Sometimes pushing the hazzard button in slightly will get the noise to happen, and is an indication it is faulty.
2. The turn signal switch in the steering column is bad. Turning the turn signal from left to right- very fast and harshly, will sometimes clear it up for awhile.
