Question about Volkswagen GTI
Sounds like you have one or more blown fuses. Check the fuse panel for anything that looks blown and replace the fuses. If all fuses are good then there is likely an issue with a wiring harness.

I asked that becauses of the wiring for the tow setup. If the previous owner had uhaul or one of the other tow companies out there install the wires for the tow package they use a crappy little product that they clamp to the wire and push a pin that cuts the casing and connects the circuit. It also seriously weakens the cables, and lets water in to the wire. Since you have a tow package I'd focus on those wires back there sounds like you may have a short. Those pins do have some wire exposure when installed right and I've seen them bundled and taped on the early 2000's explorers without being individually taped first, which leads to shorts and non working turn signals and brake lights.

I have this problem now i got my trunk to lock by going in the trunk and removing the wire from the hook that was keeping it loose. Now i can lock my trunk but i am still looking for a way to get in my gas tank. Help me please if you can.

Make sure the drivers door is open and push the button on the drivers door to open trunk. Keep the drivers door open while you open trunk. If you close the drivers door before opening it, it won't open. Well this is what happens to our car. Don't know if it's a fault or the design but this does work for us.
