1999 VW Cabrio Turn Signal problems

I recently purchased my daughter a 1999 VW Cabrio and the previous owner said it had a turn signal problem and needed the relay replaced. The first two weeks it wasn’t driven much and recently driven more. When my daughter turns on the left turn signal the 4 ways flash. I purchased the replacement relay and changed it and it continues to have the problem. When you use the right turn signal this does not happen. Can this be a short, or am I missing something with changing this relay?
