The relay is inside the hazard switch. I'm not sure where it is in your car, so one of the VW guys will hopefully chime in on this one. If it's like my Audi A4, the button is rectangular and above the stereo. I have to slide the stereo head unit out of the dash, reach in, and push up on the bottom rear of the switch to free it. Then I can pull it forward, unplug it, plug in a new one, reseat it, and reset my stereo in the dash. Your procedure is likely to be similar since Audi and VW are part of the same conglomerate.

Need a diagram for how to find the flasher in a 1999 dodge stratus..it's not in the fuse boxes


Simple method without mystery:
  1. Turn blinker flashers on;
  2. Listen for clicking;
  3. Find source of clicking. It is the flasher. :)
NOTE: Emergency flashers and blinkers usually use a separate flasher unit, but one is close to the other. If your blinkers do not work but your emergency flashers do, find the emergency flasher unit by finding the source of clicking, then locate the blinker flasher nearby. They will ALWAYS be underneath the dashboard on the driver side.

Turning signals not working all the time


Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

I have no blinkers or flashers lights work I do not have manual to know where/ which fuse or flasher module to check


Flasher is about 1.5 inches in diameter and about 1.5 inches high. It is located under the dash, on the drivers side. Turn on emergency flasher switch and listen for the clicking.... that will bring you to the flasher... it may be burned out and need replacing.

I have a Pontiac Sunfire 2003, and the blinkers sometimes do not work even though I have activated them. The only way to get the blinkers working again is to turn on the emergency flashers, and then they...


Hello Goddard.
First thing is to verify all of the bulbs involved in the turn signal circuit are working. This will include the side marker lights. If they don't ll work the current flow may not be enough to properly activate the flasher.
Next on the list is the flasher unit itself. It is mounted on the bracket near the emergency brake pedal. Replace it, the contacts may be losing continuity and the emergency flashers would draw more current making it work.
Next would be the the signal switch itself. There may be some worn contacts and moving the emergency switch could position the contact point slightly enough to allow continuity.
If you would like more assistance on this leave me a message in "add comments" and I will check back.
I hope your repair goes well for you.

1989 chevy 1/2 ton.brake lights or emergency flashers dont work.tail lights an blinkers work.


The Blinkers and the Brake Lights are the same bulb. So check the brake light switch. Flashers use a different flasher unit, than the turn signals

No turn signals or emergency blinkers


Sounds like a multifunction switch, work the emergency flasher button up and down a few times, then attempt to work the turn signals if the signals work then you will need a multifunction switch.

Blinker dont work flasher and other lights work


The turn signals don't work, but the emergency flashers do? If that's the case, replace the flasher, you have 2 flashers, one for emergency (hazard) flasher, and one for the turn signals. It should be on the fuse block under the dash.

Blinkers stopped working


Your F--150 has 2 flashers, emergency and turn signal. Both are mounted on the fuse block under the dash. The turn signal flasher is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, the emergency flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel. so replace the turn signal flasher should solve the problem. Let me know how it goes.
