I swear every F'n month it is another new issue with this car..aiighh. I go to turn on the blinker to make a turn and nothing happens!! I then check my hazard lights and no blinking when pressed... No side markers either.. ahhh...not sure what it could be- already checked the fuse panel and all are good. Any ideas?? People who follow me are starting to get pissed when I go from 40mph to 10 and make a turn without signaling...hahah, I think I will relearn the hand signals from drivers ed.. or just give them the finger like I have been doing when they beep!! Happy Holidays! [up]

Ouch man. I had this problem when doing the dual taillight mod, I blew the fuses. I would try to throw some new fuses in there just in case. Other than that I wish you the best of luck man.

Did you check your fuses with a multimeter? Sometimes the fuses blow and you really can't tell. Either that or swap out the fuses. There should be a thread entitled, 'Fuse List.' That should help you out.

Look on the panel you pull off to mess with the fuses, there is a map on the backside. I would pull anyones that had to deal with blinker or taillights and replace.

Yup the hazard switch, just replaced mine.. so easy to replace too. And if your not sure where its located, its the black rectangular object right behind the hazard light button, it just pops right out. Just plug in the new one and your good to go. And like everyone else said, it controls the turn signal as well as the hazard lights.

yes hazard switch contains a relay that controls the turn signals. Replace the switch and you're good to go.

Sorry about the zombie thread but...

My girlfriends A4 keeps popping the blinker fuse...from reading it looks like the relay may be the cause...

just looking for a small agreement :D
