On a 2001 Volkswagon Beetle why would both blinkers quit working The bulbs are not bad?

The turn signals and hazard lights on this year Beetle are controlled by the hazard switch. Dealers refer to this switch as a hazard/flasher module. When the switch fails, the lights typically flash once or twice then stop due too faulty internal contacts. The switch/module is just like the old style turn signal flasher that older cars used years ago, only the cost is a little bit more expensive. This is a common part that fails on this vehicle.
