Fuses? I think

(1991 Volkswagen Jetta)
in Fredericksburg, VA on February 03, 2011
I bought a 1999 VW Jetta for my son yesterday. He pushed the dangling trunk light back up into the trunk and immediately the bulb went out, the windows wouldn't roll down, the trunk would not open back up and the car wouldn't start. We found a blown fuse, replaced that, and after some issues with the alarm it finally started. Now when he turns on his headlights the trunk pops open. The widows still will not roll down, and the speedometer doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks

Sounds like when your son pushed up the trunk light, he may have jammed some wiring. So I would go back there an make sure that nothing is grounding. Did everything work properly when you first purchased the car?
