Your best option is to locate someone who can scan your car. The model you have is capable of checking almost all of the electrical systems using vcds/vag-com. Check on they have local members who can help you fix this issue.

All lights in my 2005 Jetta are out and buttons do not work.

I presume cero ligths (Fronts, Rears, Interior, panel and so on). This is a very rare problem because circuits are "independent", any way, start checking fuses. If they are ok, probably one of the harnesses is disconnected or with a false contact ( very rare, however it happens). You have to check the harnesses of the Main switch (key), and front ligths.

Good luck.

When we open the doors, the interior light do NOT

Check the dome light, there is supposed to be a three-position switch; off, on constant and on when door opens...try that switch and see if the lights come on...if that doesn't work, check the bulb to see if it is burned out and if that doesn't work, check the fuse panel for a blown fuse...

2005 nisson altima interior lights not functioning

Hopefully you've gotten your car fixed by now, but mine just did the same thing today 4/25/2010. While changing the dome light, I blew the 10 amp 'Batt Saver' fuse located inside the car driver side fuse area. The mini fuses in the interior are nearly impossible to check if they are blown without a tester. I bought a cheap one for $5 at AutoZone and discovered. Once replaced, all worked fine. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem I had today.

Primary fuel pump (15 Amp) fuse blown (in cold weather ?)

Primary fuel pump requires replacement. Your secondary fuel pump is used only for starting and WOT situations. This is why your vehicle will start, run, and die.
