Turn Signal

Can the quick turn signal be reprogrammed from 3 to 5 or some other number of flashed? I could make this change on a previous VW Touareg.

i have been wondering the same thing. seems like 5 flashes would be a better time than just 3. Might want to check in the manual but i dont think it could be changed

It does flash longer when you have a trailer connected. But I don't think it can be changed.

The three-flash feature (we have it on our car) takes a while to adapt to, but is a nice feature. What I can't figure out is why they changed the lever to activate the bright lights by pulling all the way back instead of pushing forewords like it's been forever...I consider that a step backwards. A couple of times I've flashed the brights to alert someone cutting me off and turned them on inadvertently.

I wonder if you can just plug in a wire connector from a trailer and it will think it is towing something and then give you the 5 flash signal all the time?

when did they add this feature?

my 2010 XL does not have it.

maybe it's an XLT & up thing?

Personally, i think it's just another gimic ... but then again, i'm glad that other's have it. keeps those "one flasher's" a little more honest

I believe it was a feature added to the 2011's if I am not mistaken. Personally I wish it was 5 for normal turning and 7 for when towing. It would be nice to be able to set the number of turns from the nav screen!

It was an across the board change in 2011 regardless of trim level.
