New here, question about turn blinker

Hi from Canada

I picked up a 2008 City Golf recently and got everything done which was needed for safety certification including getting the turn blinker fixed.

What happens now though is while driving along you will hear the blinker clicking abnormally fast at random but the handle isn’t being pressed nor are any dash lifts flashing.

Any thoughts on the cause of this intermittent issue?

Thanks,
geo

Your 2008 Golf City is a Mk4 not Mk5, may want to post in a Mk4 forum.

Are you certain? From photos of the engine bay and body style it bears the hallmarks of a Mk5? If you say it's a MK4 how can I look at the car and tell if this is true?

Post your VIN

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volksw..._1J;_1997–2003)

"As of 2008, certain variants of the Golf/Bora Mk4 were still in production in Brazil, China, and Mexico. Revised versions of the Mk4 were sold in Canada marketed as the Golf City and Jetta City from 2007 to 2010. The two models were VW Canada's entry-level offerings. They received a significant refresh for the 2008 model year, including revised headlamps, taillamps, front and rear fascias, sound systems, and wheels. Both models were offered only with the 2.0-litre, 8-valve single over-head cam (SOHC) four-cylinder gasoline engine, rated at 86 kW (115 hp; 117 PS). They were the only entry-level offerings with an optional six-speed automatic transmission. Production of the European variant of the Golf Mk4 ceased at the end of the 2003 model year. Production of the U.S version ended in 2006. "

It’s so strange because things such as the date (2008) would otherwise suggest it is indeed a MK5. You learn something new every day!
