99% sure if you look in the accordian between the door and frame of the car you'll find cut wires. Pull back the rubber seal and check there first. If they are you'll have to remove the harness and fix it back to the connections in the car for a good repair or order a harness.

Check the fuses before doing anything else - your manual will tell you which fuse. If the fuse is OK, start looking for a loose wire, Don\'t start pulling the mirors apart because they are near impossible to get back together

The easy part of this problem is knowing what it is, the difficult part is finding where it's shorting out. With the meters of wire and harness it would be discouraging thinking about it. Knowing VW took a lot of time engineering to avoid this simple problems, there are conditions that couldn't prevent this.

First off, have you recently installed an aftermarket part that hooks up to the wiring system e.g. radio, gauges, gps or other electronic accessory? Something added that needed a harness moved to make it fit or needed splicing a wire to power it up?

There are times when doing electrical work, the person doing it doesn't realize while stripping insulation from new wire that a strand of wire fell in a switch, fuse terminal causing a short in it's circuit.
You'd need to clean the fuse area with a clean paint brush to dust off any metal debris. Another way is by simply using a digital VOM with continuity tone to single out which component is causing it to blow the fuse.

Another suggestion is use a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. This will also help pinpoint which component to look at and narrow the search area.

If you're a DIY kind of person and want to know how your vehicle works, wanting to get a little more involved. You'll need a Windows based laptop and purchase a ROSS-Tech software by clicking on the address.

2004 vw beetle window fuse what # would be for the fuses? I don't have a manual & pannel doen't show.


Send me an email address and I'll send along a fuse block diagram for my daughters 1998 Beetle, it's most likely the same in 2004. Compare the arrangement with yours.

The 1998 diagram doesn't indicate any fuse in the inside fuse block that controls the power windows (even though my daughters 1998 has power windows). There is a metal fuse on the fuse block above the battery that controls the cars electrical system, but the diagram indicates that this should only be replaced by a VW Dealer.

Maybe you can call the local VW Dealer once you have a fuse block diagram to refer to. They should be willing to tell you over the phone.
