Question about 2000 Saturn SL
I have a 2000 saturn sl1 the dashlights tail lights and lights for the ac/and heater controls will not come on. I have checked the fuses and replaced them that wasnt the problem but can anyone help me with this. Thank You
is your jetta a 1998 or 2000? the site is showing two different years. here are instructions for a 2000 jetta gl. there is a blower motor resistor in this system. there is also a fuse integral to the resistor. it's all one unit, have to replace the whole thing. here's the step by step:
1.remove the glove box (what you need to get to is behind it)
2.disconnect the electrical connector from the blower resistor
3.disconnect the heater fan electrical connector
4.remove the blower resistor
5.remove the blower motor downward
and to reinstall
1.install the blower motor
2.install the blower resistor
3.connect the electrical connector to the heater fan
4.connect the electrical connector to the blower resistor
5.install the glove box
and of course anytime you work on anything electrical you are supposed to disconnect the battery negative terminal before you start, be warned that you might lose your radio station presets when you disconnect battery
hope that helps

I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.
I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.
Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*
Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)
SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!
The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.
SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)
*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*
SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.
I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)
Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.
My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.
I hope this helps.

No need to tear the dash out. The blower is located above the
passenger's feet, below the glove compartment. You access it from
underneath. Three small black bolts hold it on and there is a two wire electrical
connector on the bottom that must be removed. The motor drops down with the fan blade attached. Should take about 5 or 10 minutes to remove.
I have a '93 SL2 and the interior is the same as an SL1 or 2 from '92, '93, '94 and maybe even a '95.
