Hello. For the past few months I have been replacing my taillight every month due to it burning out. The other day I replaced the bulb but now it doesn't fix the issue at all and my blinker has suddenly sped up on that side. Any have any experience dealing with an issue like this? :confused:

Spray a little dielectric grease in the socket might not be a bad bulb but a bad contact in the socket.

Is the bulb really failing??

Are you getting water in the housing and is the bulb cracking.

Bad grounds can cause intermittent issues.

Not sure about the VW, but other German cars have problems with the bulb sockets and they do not make a good connection.
