Radio, lights (inner and external), power doors, power windows all are not working. I checked the fuses and all seems to be fine with those, visually. I am not sure what else to look at.

Your problems lie with the BCM, body control module, all these functions go through and are controlled by this module, only the dealer has the electronic test equipment req'ed to test the function of this module, it is an active test that cycles each system that the module controls one time, and then returns a report of any faults found during the test in the form of Body trouble codes.

Van will not start. Can hear fuel pump but nothing else.

First thing check the fuses! Turn the key to the on 'run' position and check both sides of every fuse with a test light, or pull them out one by one, but test light is easier! If all is fine check for power on the starter main terminal (power will be constant when in any key position), then check for power on other terminal when in start position! If both powers are present then you will need a new starter!

My 2000 buick lasbres windows and power locks stopped working.the radio works but i have to turn it on and off . at first it stopped working for about 4 hours and then started working again,but now its...

TOOLS: Ideally you will need a 12 volt test light and a Digital Volt Ohm Meter. But if you do not have access to these tools you only be able to visually inspect the fuse for condition.

MY IDEA: (1) Open the hood and look for a fuse box with large fuses and relays in it. The fuses in this box will be physically larger than the fuses you may be used to seeing in the passenger compartment. Power door locks and windows not only require higer current flow as well as relays too. (2) Once you have located this box remove/open the cover and look for any labeling to identify fuses and relays as part of the power door lock or window systems.

CASE A: If these system fuses test okay/pass a visual inspection (not blown to open the circuit), light the test light on both legs of the fuse or when checking with a meter have minimal resistance across the fuse then you should change your focus at least temporarily to the master switch in the drivers door.
Since both the power door locks and power windows are inoperative I would start my diagnosis at the master switch assembly in the drivers side door. Somehow you need to get the master switch assembly out of the arm rest to proceed with diagnostics.

CASE B: if the system fuses didn't test okay/fail will need to get the master switch assembly out of the arm rest and remove all the connectors to remove a potential fault to cause the fuse(s) to blow open.

Before proceeding I need to know what the results are (i.e. CASE A or B). This will indicate where we need to look next to run further diagnostics.

I know I haven't mentioned the radio symptoms but my suspicion is that it may be coincidental or resolved permanently with repairs to the other two systems.

Hope this helps.

First check to see if the radio is coming on. Does the light work and can you change stations. If it appears that the radio is working visually, either your speaker plug in at the back of the radio for the speakers is loose, or you have an internal problem in the output section of the radio. However, first I would check my fuse panel & make sure that the fuse that powers the radio is good. Rick

02 VW Jetta locks, remote, lights, windows stopped working

Same problem with an '03 Golf--remote entry, power windows, and interior lights stopped working. This was easily fixed by replacing fuse #14, (10 amp), located in the driver's side fuse block.
