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.

I have a 2006 jetta 2.5 automatic. the airbag warning light comes on although there seems to be no problem. A lamp light stays on even though i have no headlight or turn/backup/break light/trunsignal...

My jetta 2.5 2006 had a defective wire harness in the driver's door with cracked insulation causing intermittent short-circuits bringing battery discharge and no start-up in the morning.
I suspect all the cars that had their wiring made with the same roll of wire will experiment similar problems.

Airbag light staying on

You need to connect to vag com or some else computer program to see the error code and when remove prroblem you need to delet the error from car computer memory to get rid of the light.
The most common problems are: blown fuse, bad connection under the seat or something like that! But you can't do nothing without the comp.
