My blinkers stay on and dont blink just solid green light.
turn on the blinker and it blinks once then nothing like you turned it off
My turn signals work only sometimes. They work when I first use them, but the more I use them they stop working?
Left blinker goes 100x faster than the right. Bulb replaced twice and it still goes out.
Turn signals worked intermittently,now don't work at all. Flashers still work
flashes fast on the right side, fine to the left. Haven't gotten it fixed yet.
Blinkers not working
Blinker keeps ticking after using the turn signal.
Turn signal does not work, this needs to be repaired by a VW dealership at no cost to the customer. The internet is full of people with the same problem with their VW product, its not just the beetle. I am very disappointed with my car, its very hard to maintain. Parts and service are priced out of my range.
Erratic turn signal
My blinkers stay on, don't blink inside or out.
Turn signals just quit working - I turned the car off and back on, then they started working again...
blinkers work when they feel like it... may go all day with no problem then they stop working... sometimes as im turning they may start working again or if i leave blinker on.
First, my heat stop working, then my blinkers would work occassionally, now signals don't work at all. The driver's doesn't heat and the seat adjuster is broken and wires are exposed. Now, my window on the drivers side is barely working. My poor little bug!
solid turn signal illumination.
My turn signals work sometimes, and then neither will work. This happens totally sporadically.
by chance your headlights on and the turn signal in the left position? If so this is a European feature
Turn signal knob is touchy - if you push even slightly up, the right turn signal comes on. When it is cold, the turn signal comes on all by itself - have come outside in the morning to find my turn signal has been on for god only knows how long. Also, it is very difficult to get the right turn signal to shut off, especially when it is cold.
when car is in reverse it will not turn off.when you push on brakes, both turn singles flash
Blinkers stopped working - rapid clicking only... also emergency flashers not working..
