Does your horn work? If not, I had the same problem... It was a faulty ignition switch. Believe it or not...

Check the fuses. Open the Drivers door. It is on the side of the dashboard. It is a piece of plastic that looks like a 13" letter B. It snaps off. The card inside should tell you what is what. Look for broken, blackened fuses. If found replace with Same Fuse Color/number. It is ok to put a lesser value fuse in place of a higher value. But not the other way around. 15a for a 20a is ok. NOT 20a for a 15a fuse. If you do switch to lesser value. Do so only as a temporary fix.

When you start your card do not roll the windows down at the same time. Especially if the AC is on.
This often causes fuses to blow.

Will not turn over and headlights blinkers back


Check for power to your starter relay - if there is power there then most likely is your starter motor

1999 vw beetle. blinkers, wind shield wipers not working.


check your ground conections under the dash first. and if they look ok take them apart and clean them anyway, and if the problem is still not fixed look for what all of these systems have in common. i would suspect the grounds though its common on vw problems.

1999 a6 steering wheel melting...!


On the extreme left of the dashboard where the door seems to make contact with the dash, there is a "D" shaped panel that can be pried off by sticking a very thin screwdriver or similiar object in the notch. Once the panel is off you will see a cluster of fuses from 5 to 30 amps. On the panel you removed you will see a label indicating which fuse operates which electrical component and the size of the fuse. The fuse that operates the heated steering wheel warmer should be # 27. You may find that the fuse is not blown but for some reason the warmer is not working. For safety you can still remove the fuse. I think in the Avant this fuse also operates the rear windshield wiper.
