Volkswagen Golf Plus – Fuse and Relay

Volkswagen Golf Plus is a subcompact van created on a common basis with the 5th generation Volkswagen Golf. Produced in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009. After that, the car was restyled, some call it a generation change, and the updated one was produced in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. This change also slightly affected the electrical system of the car. In our material you will find a designation of the fuse and relay boxes in the Volkswagen Golf Plus with diagrams and photo examples. Let’s highlight the fuse responsible for the cigarette lighter.
