Hi, you will need to trace the wire from the fuse to the headlight switch. If you can tell me your model, I may be able to tell you the color of the wire. A common area of concern is the area under the dash where the wires leave the switch. If they are caught in the parking or regular brake mechanism, that can cause a short. You're looking for a spot where the wire is pinched in metal and/or the insulation has stripped from the wire. If you find it, wrap it with electrical tape and tie the wires back from whatever they were caught in.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: fuses keep blowing

Something in that system is giving FEEDBACK into the system and burning up the Fuses, disconnect each system Individually and plug each one in one at a time and if the fuse does not burn out, then unplug it and do the next. When the one Burns out, then you have the Exact cause and then troubleshoot.

My Experience is the RADIO is the culprit

My 2000 VW Beetle's Ac stopped working. It doesnt blow any air out at all. Also the break light and the ABS lights are on. The ABS came on after the breaks got changed. The Break light is blinking and...

Sounds like you have some electrical gremlins that have moved in...

Since the fan does not even come on, and the fuses keep blowing. It sounds like the resistor pack for the blower motor could have failed, or a wire is shorted somewhere.

The ABS could simply be a wire, or sensor that was carelessly overlooked to be plugged back in when the breaks were done. Or it could be more serious.

2000 vw Beetle keeps overheating. Have changed thermostat but problem is still there. The abs light is now staying on too.

The ABS light is a separate problem from your cooling issue.
Cooling issue:

Replacing your thermostat would usually solve old cooling problems. Times have change and so does technology and materials together with ISO manufacturing process. So the days of a stuck thermostat are long gone. Usually it's not the manufacturing of the thermostat that causes it to get stuck but the quality of the coolant itself. VW redesigned it's GL12 coolant to be phosphate free. This keeps rust and residue build up to a minimum.


Although VW redesigned it's coolant, they went cheap with the choice of materials for the pump. The pump uses a plastic composite impeller, who knows if it were cost or it's properties. This impeller cracks int the area at the shaft which is connected to the pulley. You need an aftermarket water pump such as this 7448f15.jpg It uses a metal impeller so that tells you something. You can also oredr the pump from MJM Autohaus in Texas if you live in the US, they have competitive prices together with free shipping. This particular brand cost is $49.95. My suggestion when doing a water pump job is to replace the timing belt too. It's in the way and needs to be removed to get to the pump., so keep that in mind. Also use the red coolant from VW which is GL-12 ONLY.

ABS issue.
A scan of the ABS controller needs to be done. This will tell you what failed within it's system. This the correct way specially when the issue deals with your safety. Never go cheap with the brake system, because when it fails, you'd smack yourself silly after the accident. It could also be a minor problem with the wheel sensors being dirty or a bent sensor wheel located behind the brake rotors.

With this kind of info, it should have a good rating at least. Good luck.

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

ABS Light Stays on new brakes put on

Could be dirty abs sensors attached to your brakes. I would clean them with brake parts or elecronical cleaner.
Other possibility is a faulty ABS system.
