No brake lights or turn signals...

wires. 8)

My guess is still that it's something with the hazards, since that's the
only place in the wiring where both the turn signals and the brake lights
really cross paths.  I replaced the bulbs, replaced the hazard lighting

signal switch, and then replace all the connections to it (some of them are
a little dirty, but they don't look _that_ bad!)

Has anyone else run into this problem in their VWs?  What was the solution?
Is there something as simple as needing to have the indicator lights
connected?  (The only thing that's hooked up on my dash is the
