    You have a dead short to ground,I would look around under the hood for wires rubbing through on metal or signs of arcing,burnt connectors etc. ..Theres alot going on at fuse 32 and Passats are not known for this problem.Also try moving the wiring harnesses a little and see if that changes anything,sometimes moving 1 mm to the left helps you find the problem..Good luck

My ignition fuse keeping blowing

You have a wire rubbing on something metal. Look at the wiring harness in the car and engine compartment. Try moving them around a bit and see if you can get the fuse to blow or not to blow.
