fast blinking is a sign that the flasher relay has a fault , change that and i would expect the fog light issue will resolve as well , as i expect the flasher relay is trying to earth through a different circuit
I had the same problem with my 2002 Jetta. The front right bulb wasn't working. I replaced the bulb and it still didn't work, that's when I found that the bulb could be inserted backwards! I turned the bulb 180 degrees and now the blinkers are normal.
Another thing I noticed was that one of the contacts on the bulb and socket were burnt. I bought the car used in 2010 and I verified that the flasher relay was replaced as part of the recall, so I don't know if the damage was done before the relay was replaced or I still have a problem. I will keep an eye on the bulb about one a month.
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'.
