Maybe a fuse has blown? on 1999 Volkswagen Passat

My radio isn't working, the windshield wippers aren't working, and the heat isnt blowing at all. What could be the problem?

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.

The electrical portion of the ignition switch could be failing. Not at all uncommon.......
