there could be a black plastic box that has fuses but also you will find relays. From the relay you can find the socket that feeds 12v directly into the headlight and see if headlight is ok and if the relay is suppling 12v to the headlight. Also from the relay you can also check if the switch is supplying 12v to the relay coil with a voltmeter or a 12 volt probe tester. you may have a faulty relay but you could test this via a volt meter.
you may have blown globes by getting a wire and putting terminal connectors that match the relay legs and manually supplying the 12volts to the headlights from the relay socket you can test if the globes light up . So basically you are doing the relays job
12V power passes through 15A fuse 33 (the one that keeps blowing?) in the battery junction box and on to the main light switch. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the park filaments of the dual park/turn lamps. These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.
The main light switch gets its 12V input from 7.5A fuse 11 in the central junction box and the same 15A fuse (33) identified above. When the main light switch is set to PARK, 12 volts is routed via the BRN lead to the instrument panel dimming module and module output is applied to the panel illuminating lamps.These lights remain on when the headlight switch is turned to HEAD.
The input to fuse 33 is hot all the time so should read 12V. If you read 12V at the TAN/WHT connection with the fuse out, something is definitely not right. I'm sure you have noted that the fuse is common to the non-functioning circuits you mentioned.
Hello. Both of my 12v outlets went out @ the same time on my 2011 Jetta TDI. Our dealership wanted us to bring it in to have it fixed. I decided to do some research and Pepboys came to the rescue. They printed me a fuse box diagram and a list of what goes w/ what fuse. Fuse location #30 is connected to the 12 v . It is a light yellow 20Amp fuse. It cost 4 dollars for 2 fuses and solved the problem.
The fuse for the 12V accessory plug or "power point" as Ford calls it is located: looking at the fuse box (lower right side panel (just inside the passenger door)--the third row of fuses from the bottom; look for a large horizontal 30A thing (don't know what to call it). You'll see to its right, two 20 yellow fuses, then a 52. The 12V fuse is the second yellow fuse from the right of big 30A thing. The owners manual is useless for fuse information pg 194-195. The graphic in my manual doesn't look anything like the fuse box in my truck. Someone else posted on this site the 12V fuse is #39, being a yellow 20. That was my only clue, so I started pulling yellow fuses one-by-one until I found it. What fun!
Check if it works in the boot, you have a permanently live 12v socket in the boot. If it works on this one then it must be the fuse which controls the two front 12v sockects.
To access the fusebox - Carefully remove the cover underneath the dash board in the passenger footwell. It is held on by two clips, these are released by pushing the centre of the clip in.
Once you have the cover off remove the two front screws holding the fuse box in place, then carefully pull the fuse box down and towards you. The handbook will tell you which of the fuses relates to the 12v sockets. Remove the fuse and replace with a matching one, these can be purchased from most garage for around 10p.
Before replacing the fuse box check the socket works. If it doesn't then you will need to get it checked out by the dealer or an auto electrician.
