Hi All

I own 2 MK1's and both have this problem, so I thought this could be a known issue. When I'm driving the car with the windscreen wipers on and the turn signals on aswell then I can hear a buzzing sound. This sound can be heared when the wipers are going back down, while the turn signal blinks. It sounds like there's a relais stuck or something, the sound is coming from either the wiper assembly or somewhere else in the dashboard behind the gauges.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? How did you solve this problem?

Thank in advance :thumbup


Kind regards, Rowan

Yeah i have that same problem in my 85 N/A and mine has started doing it when there is nothing on in the car except the car is on no radio wiper or blinker. I have not been able to trace it yet. Still working on it but mine sounds like buzzzzz click then a couple seconds later it does it again, it is about the duration of a blinker.

You almost for sure have a bad ground connection in the turn signal switch array circuit, and it is backfeeding through the emergency flasher relay causing it to whine / buzz. I've seen it before.
