Posted on Jan 02, 2010 the signal indicator lights are suppose to flash in perticular time interval which is connected to a timer relay when the light flashes faster that means the other light is not working and the relay is getting double the current and moving faster so check the other light either the bulb is fuse or the current is not reaching up to the bulb Aug 22, 2012. There were also some other parts of the fusebox that were loose and wiggling because whatever was holding them in place also melted. The car didn't have power.
Yesterday I received a recall notice and I called the dealership today to set up a date to get it fixed. I sent one message to volkswagen on america yesterday but they have not contacted me to get additional information or provide guidance. We understand that sometimes this gets worse over time and other aspects of the lock go bad -- you can't open the trunk, the rear door, etc. Sometimes all my lights would work on the way to school, but on the way home my whole passenger side would not work.

There was not an emergency lane on the road. Coasted to off-ramp, stopped car and then re-started it. My next step was to change the headlight bulbs so as usual I bout the top of the line bulb for the car, this didn't change a thing. In february of 2017 my check engine light came on and was accompanied by a series of 3 beeps.
People sometimes thinking a bulb was out would replace it and even though the replacement bulb worked, it was actually the act of moving the fixture that made the light bulb work. I think it was the contacts that relay power to specific locations of the vehicle. The contact was able to pull to the side of the road and had the vehicle towed to a dealer.

If they had done the correct thing, I wouldn't be left in an unsafe car to transport my family, due to their engineering design negligence. This time at a different location. I replaced them 4 times in the last two months! I know this has happened with many other owners as well. I asked if it was safe to drive. A lot of times when I start the car, it stalls by itself from nothing and sometimes would not start again. Or if anyone else has any insight on the problem it would be greatly appreciated.
