I recently purchased a 1985 Volkswagen Golf, but the turn signals and hazard lights don't work.
Everytime I try to turn them on, it blows the fuse.
I was wondering if this is a common problem, and what anyone thinks about how it could be fixed
thanks for the help

...Common problem...Electrical??...I haven't experienced any in the 8 WaterCooled that I have owned....Check all the wiring carefully, especially the main harness which runs by the drivers side floor sill....could be a water short, or maybe someone in the past did some "Mod's" to the Electrical and they weren't too
"Clean" in their Splicing..
There is also "Main" wiring from the front firewall which runs right below the battery
where the tray is.....If Battery acid has eaten through wiring...Along with "Normal" moisture from Rain and car washes...That would be a likely cause..
