Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Checklist

When the hazard warning lights are switched on, for example if the vehicle is being towed, a change in direction or lane change can still be indicated by operating the turn signal. The warning lights will be interrupted temporarily.

Switch on the hazard warning lights:

Always follow local regulations for the use of the hazard warning lights.

If the hazard warning lights are not working, use an alternative method of drawing attention to the broken-down vehicle. This method must comply with traffic legislation.

WARNING

Ignoring any of the items on this important safety checklist can lead to accidents and severe injuries.

WARNING

The components of the exhaust system become very hot. This can cause fires and serious injuries.

The vehicle battery will discharge if the hazard warning lights are left on over a long period of time – even when the ignition is switched off.

If you brake hard at speeds over approximately 80 km/h (50 mph), the brake lights will flash to warn the traffic behind. If you then continue to brake, the hazard warning lights will be switched on automatically at speeds under approximately 10 km/h (6 mph). The brake light will light up steadily. Once the vehicle starts to accelerate, the hazard warning lights will switch off again.
