Thread: Turn signals won't flash

    Turn signals won't flash

    I'm building my Mk4 with the provided wire harness from factory five. All the electrical works fine, except the turn signals and hazards. I tested the electrical connections by temporarily attaching a light to the individual lighting wires with alligator clips. The connection is properly grounded. When I hit the turn indicator switch, the correct wire is electrified, however the test light is dimmer than normal and will not flash. Same result when I attach the test light to the hazard wire and hit the switch. This is my first time building a car, and lack the knowledge to understand what the issue could be. What am I missing here?

    Put bulbs into all the sockets - the flashers typically need a full load to work. You can also put a voltmeter across the wires and an ammeter inline - check you have the correct voltage and amps going through.
