2002 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Signal switch

Signals switch continues to click even when the signels are off I've replaced the Switch a couple of times and usually just works for about 3hours and continues on clicking as the turn signals are off. The Most Annoying thing ever.

    Sounds like a partial short in the turn signal switch has damaged the flasher unit, seems to be a common problem with these VW.

    I have this same issue. How easy is it to replace the flasher unit?

    put a piece of cardboard between your air vent up by the flasher button, I found there is some connection in there that controls your flashers and blinkers. Mine did the same thing and I just got lucky and touched it, so I keep something in there at all times. Sometimes I have to adjust it to get my blinkers working again, but untill I fix it, what I am doing works.
