Default No headlights, no wipers and no turns

On my 02 Beetle daily driver, I have no headlights other than flash to pass. No wipers at all. No turn signals other than the hazards work fine.

I replaced the stalk with another one I had. Same results. NOTHING WORKS.

I'm stumped???

Do a VCDS scan for starters? Or did it not show anything?

No, I skipped that and dug right into it. Would of bet money on it that it was the stalk. I'll get it all back together and hook up to VCDS. TOO COLD right now to work on it outside.

Thanks Tony for reminding me. STEP ONE: Check with VCDS!

Could this be a load reduction relay issue?

It will be where all the other relays are located. Someone here can chime in where and relay number. Check Bently if you have one.

That act gives the starter all the power available for "starting" purposes.
