Try looking for a fuse box in the glove box. Even try opening both front doors and looking on the sides of the dash. O e other spit may be under the steering column. You will have to lay on the driver side floor looking up to find d it if its there
had this problem with my caravan recently all it took was checking fuses and if they are good take off your batt+ wire for 5 min and rehook it if that fails then check your dash cluster harness mine got pinched and shorted out most of the same things you have not working
You should start with you fuse block itself. For that many different things to be not working the one thing they have in common is the fuse box. if the fuses are good you may have a faulty fuse box itself. Use a voltmeter and test the slots to the fuses for each electrical item. If you dont have voltage going to your fuses then the box needs replacing. If you do then either fuses need replacing or damaged or broken wiring.
The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on. If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.
G'day mate it would seem that the fuses though on inspection are fine they may be not so good if removed for inspection also remember that if the fuses are dirty that moisture will carry a voltage to earth on a dirty damp circut. also there should be another fuse box near the battery with higher amperage fuses hope this helps
check the fuses first, if fuses are good then check for power at dimmer switch, also are all dash lights out. meaning no night light for heater control or cig lighter or radio, if thats the case then follow my advise, but if all other lights do work then go straight to checking the bulbs in the dash cluster. hope this helps.
Check the taillight fuse, too (15 amp fuse next to the 7.5A instrument panel fuse). If this fuse blows, the dash lights will go out, too. I don't know why they did that, but they did. The next step then is to find out why the taillight fuse blows. It has done this repeatedly on my mom's 2002 Century. Haven't found the short yet.
i cant help you with anything but the radio, but dont just check the fuse-you have to actually remove it for about one minute and put it back in. it shuold then work! ughhhhh VW!!!! thank god for sites like these!
