2012 passat: turn signal not working

Asked by Jan 13, 2017 at 11:19 AM about the 2012 Volkswagen Passat SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My left rear turn signal isn't working; I've read for older models the signal is
related to the hazard lights and a new relay switch is needed. Is the same true
for newer models? The dashboard is different from the older models.

There is a hazard flasher and a turn signal flasher separately. You may just have a burnt out bulb so check the bulb.
