No headlights, no wipers, no heat, no blinkers

I started my 1999 Passat this morning and have no headlights, no wipers, no heat, and no blinkers. Fortunately, the seat warmer works.

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.

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?


Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

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.

No power to Horn, lights, blinkers, ac and heater on 99 Passat V6


It could be your convenience control module. I had issues with my interior lights, alarm, windows, etc. All of that is controled by the ccm. In my car, 1999 passat sedan, it was located under the driver's feet. So I pulled up the carpet and the wire splices going into it were corroded. So I cut them and respliced. Problem solved.
