2001 Audi A4 Quattro Question: Turn Signal Failure

turn signal (left or right) turns on and will shut off after 2 to 3 blinks... so i have to turn on and off the turn signal every turn... my hazard works just fine... any suggestions as to what is the problem and how much it may cost to fix? -

The turn signal relay can cause all kinds of crazy problems, like the one you describe. Cycle your hazard button (4-way flashers) a dozen times really quickly and see if that changes the behavior. The relay is actually in the hazard button and fails all the time. Sometimes people will random buzzing or clicks and that is the relay on the fritz. hope this helps -
