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 ndcarlson@aol.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. Consequence: THIS MAY RESULT IN INTERMITTENT OR INOPERATIVE TURN SIGNAL AND HAZARD FLASHER FUNCTION. Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE HAZARD FLASHER SWITCH/RELAY KIT. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 31, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987. Notes: VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC, VX

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.

What is a quick fix if the turn-signals stop working on a Mercury Sable?

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.


Where is the emergency flasher located in a 1992 Honda Accord?

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.

Is their two flasher relays on a 1990 Geo metro if so where is the one for the turn singal?

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.


My Chevy S10 turn signals stopped working altogether hazzards still work Anyone know why?

I think there are two different flashers one for blinkers and one for the flashers.


What is going on when the blinkers all of them quit working but the emergency flashers work for a 1992 Toyota pickup?

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

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.
