1984 Scirocco hazards and fog lights

Post by Samuel772 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 6:36 pm

Hi all, bought a 1984 Scirocco GTi a couple of months ago and the hazards and fog lights don’t work. Both my indicators work.

I’ve changed all fuses and the relay for the hazards but still no luck.

Any ideas of where to look next?

I would look at the switch for the hazards, possibly fit another switch?

Fog light, the switch has 2 setting, 1st click is front fog lights (if you have them but not many cars ever did) 2nd click is rear fog light and the headlights have to be on main beam for the fog light to work. May be something simple as switch not in the right position?

Thanks I’ll have a look. Also I forgot to mention, when I turn the hazard switch on, a solid light appears on the dash which should flash. It does have front fog lights but neither front or rear work under any circumstance.

Might be worth trying to see if someone has played with the wiring, a lot of them seem to have a separate relay put in the bonnet or somewhere feeding the lights straight from the battery just having the switch trigger them. If this relay has gone it might be your issue
