Default Indicator amber warning problem


Over the past year I have had my indicator light warning come on many times. I have changed the bulbs many time but it still come on randomly and ticks very fast. When I restart the car it goes off but it just comes on randomly again the garage could not find anything.

Does anyone know what may be the cause.

A Polo?
Where is the car from? Polo's and Pointers and GOL's (No not golf) I see are in Mexico.

As for the light. Have you or maybe a previous owner changed tail light bulbs or other bulbs etc to LED bulbs? Those will give that warning light.
All LED interior bulbs. Several VCDS mods. Darker window tint. EVO skid-plate. Malone Stage 2, Malone DSG tune. Winpower Projector headlights. Angel eyes. LED DRL's. 24mm H&R rear sway bar. Phase 1 & Phase 2 done.

I've seen this happen on older cars when indicator switch contacts become contaminated with wear particles. The particles of copper mix with the grease and short the contacts randomly. The solution is to clean or replace the indicator switch.
