Hi, Excellent site. My vehicle is a UK, Passat 1.9 TDI 2004. Is there a specific fuse for Airbags and where is it located ?
Many thanks in advance.
I have 2 power outlets at cargo or luggage compartment in my VW Passat TDI Wagon and they both are dead (no power). There must be some burnt fuses associated with these outlets but I can’t find where they are. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

Hello, I own a 2002 VW 1.8L Pissat v6 GLX. I keep burning out my #22 fuse (5Amp) – Right-side Park lights. As a result, I cannot get my right front and rear sidemarker lights to operate, as well as my right rear tail light (both bulbs). My right rear brake light does work. What switch relay does my #22 fuse connect to, and what is your suggestion? Thanks
What fuse is the airbags fuse
