Re: vw golf 1994 indicators
Most Golf and Jetta have their relays bunched together with the fuse block. Often, it would be inside the fuse box/compartment located under the facia panel, on the right-hand side, behind a removable cover. On most models, the flasher relay would be labeled 21.
Incidentally, sometime ago, there was a recall on some Golf where Volkswagen dealers will install a new hazard flasher switch/relay kit to remedy a common issue. You may want to try first Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

There is a flasher unit that controls both the normal indicators and hazard flashers, on a 98 ford escort it is fixed to the base of the indicator stalk switch, if you remove the shroud that covers the switches around the top of the steering column you can see the flasher unit, usually it is black and just plugs in to the bottom of the hazard and indicator switch. The unit should have an ignition supply to it as well as a perm ant supply when the hazard switch is pushed down. Sometimes these switches get sticky contacts so if you bang the switch on and off a few times it can sometimes make the contacts work and then then all the indicators start working again.
The indicators have a few components in their system, being:
The indicator switch
The Flasher Unit/Relay
The fuse & wiring
The Hazard light switch.
If the hazard switch is broken or disconnected it will stop the indicators from working, so you could check that.
You can check the indicator fuse, which should be labeled on the fuse cover. If it is blown, there is likely a fault that has caused it to blow, more often than not a problem with the trailer hitch or a trailer that has been towed.
The next culprit is the flasher unit. They are usually found in the fuse area, it is a black box, looks much like a relay, but slightly taller. If this is faulty it will cause the indicators to either stay on without flashing, or not work at all. You can check this by disconnecting it, and connecting a test light to the terminals, one at a time while working the indicator stalk (key on) If the light lights up then this confirms the switch is okay, and the flasher is likely faulty.
you can find it easily I just did mine take off the kick panel on your drivers side under the steering column and right above the brake pedal and gas pedal get a hand held mirror and look you will see a gray box right above the computer connector you will see a pink chime box a flasher for hazards and a relay a white box my turn signal flasher was behind this gray box I pulled on a wire and the flasher is attached to these wires with a black connector use a flathead screw driver to pry it up off and put in the new.
The turn signal flasher is located under dash panel, right side of steering column.
The fuse panel is located on the left side of the instrument panel. To gain access to the panel, pivot access door downward. The hazard flasher is located under dash panel, left side of steering column. The turn signal flasher is located under dash panel, right side of steering column.
Have you tried changing the flasher unit (the small plugin unit that makes the click sound when flashing)?
These units come in several variations - perhaps an unsuitable unit has been installed.
If none of the above suggestions help, you should re-check the operation on the turn signal switch.
In one of the turn positions, if you bridge out the 2 correct pins of the flasher unit, the indicators on one side should light when you move the switch to that position.
Move the switch to the other turn position, and the indicator lights on that side should light.
If none of the above helps, you will need a vehicle wiring diagram to help find the problem.
i believe the audi uses two relays for the turn signals and hazzard lights so it would appear the turn relay has failed. it should be located under the dash near the steer column.... seems to me me they have some shielding under the dash so it may be hard to get to.
