Special Notes

  • Most common Problem is a faulty Blinker/Cruise Control Stalk (actually the small Lever on Top of it), early Golf 5 (and similar) Models are known for this Type of Problem. Inside the Stalk is a sliding Mechanism which looses Contact and therefor creates an implausible Signal, the official way is to replace the Stalk but Enthusiasts found its easier/cheaper to adjust/fix the sliding Mechanism instead.
