2002 Volkswagen Beetle GL 4 Cyl 2.00L

Preventive Maintenance

My flashers just start flashing on their own when I'm driving & when just parked and off. Help!

It doesn't happen all the time, it will sometimes go for days without happening and then in one day it may happen several times in a row. My airbag light it also on but I don't think the two are related based on the randomness of the flashers going off.

Please clarify what you are referring to, the hazard / emergency flashers or just random left or right turn signal operation without the signal lever being moved? Also, when you hear the "flashers", are there lights actually blinking on the outside of the vehicle or do you only hear the clicking associated with the flashers. Details are important if you want the right answer.

Yes, it's the hazard / emergency flashers and they are blinking on the outside as well as the inside of the vehicle as if I had hit the button to turn them on. I do hear the clicking as well. I can be driving along and they come on or the car can be sitting in the driveway with no one near it and they come on as if someone had turned them on.
