Turn signal switch questions

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon and Happy New Year!

I just took position of a 2000 Boxster base model. Only issue I have is that the when I signal left, the turn signal does not cancel. When I signal right, I have to hold the lever down. It's almost like the switch is twisted. Any ideas? Also, I do not have Cruise or OBC. The temp is displayed so I'm assuming the OBC is activated. I was able to find a 4 stalk switch, and want to use both functions. With this in mind, does anyone know a shop in Northern VA that might do the work.

Guess I'm getting lazy in my old age. :P

Turn signal return issues are common in these cars, as are problems with the horn sounding without anyone pressing the horn section of the steering wheel. The turn signal return usually equates to replacing the switch in the steering column, so now would be the time to do the OBC four stalk replacement as well.

These are the necessary parts to do the four stalk, the prices date back a couple years, so expect them to be a bit higher:

1) 996-613-219-10

EWC 4 column switch - $166.29

2) 999-650-513-40

Plug Socket (for wiring harness) - $2.86

3) 000-979-009

VW Wiring Set (5 of them) - $13.05

4) 993-552-573-01-01C

Steering Wheel Switch Cover (additional opening for 4th stalk on Left hand side) - $6.06

I've also attached the DIY instructions if you want to try this yourself: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=28311
