I have a 2001 vw jetta. My blinkers stopped working, I changed the fuse but they still arent working. My hazards do work though. Could I need to replace the whole system, and if so how much does that normally cost?Thank you

The most common problem effecting all the blinkers is the hazard switch and/or the turn signal switch. Sometimes this can be confirmed by moving either switch to see if operation is restored, then you know that one of those switches is bad. I would probably replace the hazard switch first since it is cheaper and easier to get to and if the problem persists then replace the turn signal switch.The hazard switch is easy to change and should cost more than 0.5 hour. Changing the turn signal switch is a bit more involved requiring removal of the steering wheel and airbag (1.5 hour).
Moving either switch how? By turning the blinkers on and off? How much would it cost to have them replaced?
Yes just moving the turn signal switch. It should cost less than 0.5 for the hazard switch and around 1.5 hour for the turn signal switch.
Tried to move it, it still didn't work. How much is that in dollars?
The total cost depends on the rate of the shop that performs the repairs. If the shop rate was $100 per hour, 2.0 hours of labor would cost $200. Dealers are commonly in the $100 to $200 per hour range and independent shops are usually less.
