You're not supposed to run BOTH wires from the car into a single wire. The reason why they say to leave the black one out is because that's a ground, and there is already a ground one going into the VW plug. So the 2 wires you are running is the city light wire signal, and the turn signal signal.

Remove that butt crimp and run both wires to the VW plug. If it's done correctly, ONLY the parking light comes on in the parking light position, and the turn signal ONLY blinks when it's in use.

the directions only give one place for the vw plug to have turn signals ran to it, where do i run the second wire on the vw plug?

Here's the wiring diagram you need to follow. Run the Parking Light aka City Light to Pin 3 and the Turn Signal to Pin 4.
