New info:
Looks like there's a 10A fuse for each filament of each headlight. The only other circuit that the power goes through is a "Headlight Dimmer/Flasher switch.
Could be a bad switch connection.

One model has a DRL relay involving the parking brake, that's the only relay.

SOURCE: jetta headlights not working

Ignition switch will cause you to loose your head lights and turn signals. You will still be able to start the car and hold the switch for your brights but normal function is gone. Check it out it usually only runs about $20-$30 for replacement part but you need a special puller to get to it.

SOURCE: VW Jetta GL 2000, AC - Heater Fan stopped

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

SOURCE: My 97 VW jetta won't turn over. Please help!

it could be the ground wire (black) going to the starter. try putting a jumper cable straight from the black negative side of battery to the exposed metal part on the starter while a friend turns key. if it turns over then its the ground wire. if not its probably the starter solenoid or even the starter motor. solenoid would be cheaper than motor and more likely to be problem.

Assuming this is a left hand drive Volkswagen, your fuse box is located under the steering column on left side, a small storage compartment with a square button, turn that button and pull down and storage compartment will flip down

My 97 vw jetta gl stock radio does not work, I replaced the fuse for it but now the screen just lights up green nothing else


It's likely there is a security code for the radio which since being "disconnected" thinks the battery has been removed. Check with dealer by vin. They probably have the security code in their system.

Both headlights went out on my 2013 jetta tdi


No. they are on seperate fuses. If the bulbs have not blown then please see your VW agents. This may be an onboard power supply issue.

On my 99 jetta My headlights don't turn on only the driving orange lights and the hight beams work but there is only one bulb for both? And my wiper lever doesn't work the wiring is all messed up and...


have you checked the fuse for the head lights? it only has one bulb for both low and high beams, so it could be the low beam fuse that went out, and if not replace the light bulbs, but make sure you check the fuses first.. good luck!

1995 vw jetta gl air conditioner fuse 2.0 l


You may not be full of refrigerant... There is a low pressure switch that prevents the AC from actuating the clutch, and the reason is: IF there is not enough refrigerant, you will not be able to move oil through the system and you will have major damage...so no engauge...

Get the system checked, most likely there is a leak somewhere..

How do I change the passenger side headlight on my 2006 VW Jetta?


for the most part you open the hood and get your hands behind the headlight assembly and turn the socket and pull the headlight bulb out if you have a autozone near you and you get the blub from them they will help you with installing it try this website www.autozone.com

97 jetta gt all lights work except headlights


There is usually a relay under the hood that controls these. They could be run in a series which would explain your lack of a blower motor also. Good Luck.
