RE: VW passat
Not clear on what you mean by "stuck on" but if one side does not flash usually it's a bulb that's burned out. What I would do in this case is try the right side and walk around the car. Note what the lamps look like and how much is lit up then switch to the left side and compare. (both front and rear) The reason to do this is some vehicles have more than a single bulb within the housing and since they use something called a "safety flasher" (the signal relay) it's sensitive to how many bulbs it's powering, which is your clue that something isn't right, requiring a visual inspection of all 4 corners if the car.

Let us know if this helps.
