Have that problem now - auto stores don't sell replacements. So far, I've traced it to the flasher assembly on the emergency flasher switch. But I need to see how to remove that switch and see if either the contacts are flakey, or the internals of the flasher are bad. If you have had this problem fixed, please let me know as well. David email@example.com I fixed this problem a few months ago by buying a new flasher module at the dealership. To replace it, I used a screwdriver to pull the emergency flasher button off. Luckily for me, the button didn't just pop off, but instead the whole assembly slid out. I did just get a recall in the mail about last week on this. You should be able to get it replaced for free now. From http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/67-int/2001/Volkswagen/jetta/gls-tdi/index.html (It appears to be true for all 2001 VW Jettas, and not just the GLS TDI model.) 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI NHTSA Recall ID Number: 04V584000 Recall Date: DEC 16, 2004 Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HAZARD FLASHING WARNING LIGHTS:SWITCH Potential Units Affected: 410000 Summary: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE HAZARD SWITCH AND FLASHER SYSTEM FUNCTION MAY DEGRADE OVER TIME BECAUSE OF DISTORTION AND MATERIAL TRANSFER OF THE CONTACTS OF CERTAIN HAZARD SWITCH RELAYS WHICH OCCURS DUE TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASED ELECTRICAL CURRENT LOAD FROM HIGHER WATTAGE TURN SIGNAL BULBS.

Turn the emergency flashers on and make sure that they are flashing at a normal rate of speed. Then turn your emergency flashers off and try one of your turn signals and it should work.
it is behind the glove box.
it is the relay, change it, it is the hazard button, the one with the red triangle.
If your turn signal flashers stopped working, play with the emergency flasher button on top of the steering column. Our 97 Sable turn signals quit once and luckily I pushed the emergency flasher button in and out many times and the signals have worked ever since. But the emergency flashers don't work, but I can live with that.
It has one flasher that controls both the turn signals and the emergency flashers. If the turn signals are working then the flasher is not your problem. However the flasher relay is located on the drivers side, under the dash, above the fuse block, mounted on the kick panel.
You need to check the fuse box, it everything is fine there. You have to test the relay.
You may have a relay problem your flashers and turn signal are on different relays or there could be a problem with the wiring in the steering column that goes to the turn signal
AnswerDefective emergency lights flasher relay.I had the same problem and I had to buy a new turn signal switch that you have to take off the steering wheel to get to it
Emergency flashers are a separate circuit. I would replace the turn signal flasher relay. To find it, switch on your turn signals and follow the sound. The flasher is probably worn. I hope this helps.AnswerWhat he said, or you have a bulb out...
My turn signals are not working on my 92 buick regal.
Hand signals are to this day a legal form of traffic control devices.
turn signals and emerg flashers work off a flasher can. go to any auto store and buy a new one they are cheap and easy to replace
check the flasher itself and the switch
Answer---- On most cars there are two flashers. They are usually in or near your fusebox. Just use the process of elimination to determine which is which. One is for the turn signals and the other is for your emergency flashers. If your turn signals are not working, try your flashers. If they work, the problem is most likely the turn signal relay. Just put your finger on one and if you can't feel it clicking, it's most likely bad. They're usually round and silver in color and are light aluminum in composition.
I think there are two different flashers one for blinkers and one for the flashers.
you need to replace blinker can in your vehicle. the flashers and blinkers have separate flasher cans which is why your flashers still work but not your blinkers
You might just need a new flasher or a fuse.
The button that turns the flashers on is located on the steering column directly behind the steering wheel. It is located on the top or bottom right depending on model. The flashers themselves are your turn signals working in unision.
in dash lights
see if all fuses and flashers are intact.Check steering column connectors. +++ Also, generically, a possible faulty earth somewhere in the signal circuit.
I CANT GET MY TURN SIGNAL OR 4WAY FLASHERS TO WORK ,FUELS ARE GOOD. I HAVE A 98 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR CANT GET THE TURN SIGNALS OR 4WAY FLASHERS TO WORK. FULSE OR GOOD
"Pull off the roadway and activate your emergency flashers."
perhaps the flasher unit burned out or the switch is bad.
They are two separate circuits. Check the 4 way fuse then check the 4 way flasher relay.
I am having the same problem. Do you have a new or old bodystyle? VW told me it is the 6th plug on the upper right side when you open the fuse box under the dash in drivers side. I changed it & nothing... when they thought I had a new bodystyle they told me it was in the steering column. I don't know & still need it fixed. Good Luck.
