I just figured out my own 01 passat right now, i was changing my bulb and everything went dead the car will not even start what happen is that, you blew a fuse so check fuse 14 in the fuse box if the wire in the middle is broken and if it is, change it and you will see a wonderful result. thanks

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.


Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

L turn key to on but car does not start. Headlights work but panel lights and radio dont. Window will not roll up or down.


If all of the fuses inside the car and in the engine compartment are good, you will need to check the key switch to see if it is providing power to these circuits. You will need a repair manual to get the wiring diagrams.
It's possible the car had a security system and it has failed, or a relay is dead, but I would start with the key switch.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Radio, dome lights and EVIC power problem


I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.
