1999 Volkswagen Passat Q&A

1999 Volkswagen Passat Question: Maybe a fuse has blown?

My radio isn't working, the windshield wippers aren't working, and the heat isnt blowing at all. What could be the problem? -
Answer 1
Checking your fuses is an excellent place to start. If you find a fuse blown, determine what is on that circuit and disconnect on thing at a time until the fuse stops blowing. Try the heater motor and wiper motor especially. Make sure there isn't a bunch of leaves and debris up by the windshield, this will cause water to contaminate the electrical system, possibly causing your problem. -
Answer 2
The electrical portion of the ignition switch could be failing. Not at all uncommon....... -
