Use this diagram to determine which fuse to replace if your brake lights or fuel pump go out in your 1999 or newer Volkswagen Jetta or Golf.

A fuse is a safety device; it protects an electrical circuit from excessive current. Inside it is a metal strip that melts when too much current passes through, opening the circuit and blocking the current.
