I would start by checking ALL fuses , even ones that appear not to be related to the problem at hand. VW has a habit of running circuits in line with others and not indicating this on the fuse/relay legend plate. Also you want to look around for a possible major ground loss. Check the main ground from the battery to the engine block or a nearby bracket. This is of course a negative terminal feed. Also check for a pigtail wire that comes from the neg. battery terminal to the fenderwell and or the firewall. There "should" also be a flat uncoated, braided wire going from the engine to the firewall. I hope one of these is your solution, Good luck, Dana

Passenger side window wont go up? Was working perfect until last nite just quit. all other windows work.

If both window switches on the driver's side and passengers side do not work most likely it is the Power Window Regulator. You will need to remove the passengers door panel and remove the plastic water shield and check the voltage at the regulator connection. If it has a voltage when the window switch is pressed then you can order the regulator at the below link, or if you can find it cheaper or locally you can purchase it from them.

99 dodge ram fuse 12 that controls mirrors, interior lights and radio, blows out everytime you put one in. none of these things works at all. fuse was blown when i got truck, replaced it and it blew out...

Along side of where the door closes, is the plastic trim between the carpet and door jamb . Unscrew this piece of trim, a wiring harness runs along it, as well as the seat belt module under the seat wiring. What I found was one of the screws rub the harness and shorted out the system. Repaired the wires ALL GOOD!
