    B5/B5.5 Passat Fuse Layout Reference

    For the sake of those who lost their fusecard inside the fuse panel and do not have the Bentley manual, I gathered the relevant fuse layout data and slapped them all into one image for convenience. The tables with symbols were scanned from my fusecard, main pix is that of my fuse panel for visual reference and the main fuse info table is taken from the Passat Service Manual by Bentley Publishers, sections W 97-5 to W 97-6.

    There's something similar to that on here already - I found it by searching.

    This is really helpful though, so thanks a lot for posting. I'm sure a lot of people will find this very useful

    I have something real funny happening on my 2001 passat wagon. When I pull fuse #10, my horn and cruise control stop working. I also have a random parasitic battery drain. The drain seemingly goes away when I pull fuse #10. Could these two things be related?

    #10 fuse powers more than what that list says up top:

    Ah, that makes sense then. I think I've found the root of my issue.

    I know this is a really dumb question, but here it goes...

    Where is the main fuse panel shown in the top of this thread? I cannot find it for the life of me. I have a 2003 Passat Wagon. I've looked all over the inside of the car and can't find it.

    first of all, thanks! been searching for this for quite some time now...

    second, a little help about this issue please.

    for some reason, i cant adjust the height of headlights. i know it has a name in english, i just dont know how to translate it.
    i turn the dial up and down from 0 to 3 and from 3 to 0 and the light doesnt move. it wouldnt be a problem if it was stuck on the highest option, but instead its stuck on the lowest option so basically my lights barely help me drive...
    im talking about the dial that is located right above where i turn on my headlights. right next to the dial that dimms my dashboard.

    hope i explained myself correctly.

    question is, which one of the fuses is responsible for this thing? could it be that it got burned and thats why it doesnt work?

    thanks in advance.

    The fuse for headlight leveling is #8.
    It may be the dial in the dash that needs replacing part # 3B0941333C01C

    Absolutely great! But what are the 30A and 10A fuses for (right by the slant)? Are they spares?

    If that's the case, I'll fill the area with fuses of other values. Will be handy.

    dragging back up an old thread.

    2003 Passat 1.8T, Wagon GL

    front cig lighter is working, back seat (console, just above ashtray) is not. are they controlled by different fuses? Ive tested voltage at the lighter thats not working and its dead, but i cant find a fuse dedicated to the individual cig lighters (at least nothing on the fuse legend that says so). SURELY they arent both controld by the same fuse???

    Edit, i just pulled every fuse and all are good. Is there another fuse panel besides the one just left of the steering wheel?

    Check the fuses on the bottom of the 13 position relay panel.

    Ha! I knew that would be next. The relay panels are located behind the headlight switch. You can see them by looking behind the the fuse panel. The lower dash panel needs to be removed to access them. I think there is a diy on this somewhere.

    Here the first few steps in this diy will get you to the relays.

    what ASSININE engineering on VW's part. I thought the germans were smart. I can see putting big relays back there behind that panel, but 3 more 20 amp fuses??????? Why the HELL not put them out there with the rest of the fuses!??!! I mean FFS, its not like there arent plenty of spare spots to put them! Especially for something as simple as a lighter.

    Ok, rant over (for now). Thanks for the info, that was it, the fuse was blown, and i def. appreciate the tips.

    What type are these fuses? ATM, ATO, ATC.....etc.? I'd like to get a bag-o-fuses to put in the car. Thanks.

    The ones most recently spoken of in this topic were just regular fuses, believe the lighter fuse was a 20A(?). There are three of them back their with the relays

    There is no such thing as a "regular fuse", there are a lot of different types of fuses.
