Thanks for responding. Frustrated at spending over an hour on the damn internet looking for a simple diagram of what each fuse covered , driving to a parts store, buying a Chiltons repair manual, changing a few fuses that didn't need changing ( ac still blew hot ) I took it back to the repair shop this am and will let them deal with it.
I think I am going to create a diagram and give it away for FREE so idiots like me can change the fuses and get on with more important things in life.

The fuse panel on 2002 VW Beetle Turbo is located behind a plastic cover on the driver's side end panel of the dashboard, door open. The fuse no.# 1 - 10A (red colour) is for cigarrete lighter. See pictures below:
If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer
does it sound like there is any compression. remove cover on the right side that covers t-belt see if belt might have broken. if cooling system failed could have blow fuse for cooling fans. causing overheating.
Check the fuses under the hood for corroision. They should be locarted on the right hand side looking under the hood. I have a 2000 beetle that I was having problems with. technicans check everything and said all was o.k.. I found a fuse that was burnt up and cover with corroison. I cleaned the terminals replaced the fuse and have had no more problems.
