1999 Era Volkswagen Jetta Fuse Map


Below you'll find the fuse map and locations for the fuse box on a 1999 Volkswagen Jetta. Similar models will have similar fuses. The information is also contained in your owner's manual, or if you don't have one, you can use a proper service manual for reference. While you're staring at your computer, you can use this site as your guide! 

When you're replacing fuses, it's important to know which fuse goes to which circuit. It's not that you're going to truly damage anything by pulling out the wrong fuse, but believe me when I tell you that it can be a little frustrating to accidentally reset all of your radio station favorites when you were trying to replace the fuse to your car's auxiliary power socket or cigarette lighter. This is when it can be really handy to have a fuse map in front of you. 

For reference, below you'll find all of the information you need, including the location of each fuse, what circuit it protects, and what size fuse should be in this location.

With all of this information, you should have no problem keeping your electrical system in good shape. Remember, always replace a fuse with the engine off and the key out of the ignition switch. Sometimes the surge of power that comes from installing a fuse into a hot circuit can cause sensitive electronics to freak out, erase themselves, get zapped, and any number of other really annoying and potentially expensive maladies.
