Passat GL H Reg - fuses - Jim Robertson
Problem just now with fuse blowing which covers internal lighting, clock and central locking. Any ideas please?

First thing to check is the central locking motor/vacuum pump in the boot,disconnect it and see if the fuse still blows.Another possibility is a faulty alarm unit which may be connected to the locking system.Unfortunately there are many other possible causes so allow plenty of time to check this short circuit.

Thanks David. There is an alarm system which is no longer used so yes it may be that. I'll try the pump also. Thanks for responding.

Funny thing happened when I disconnected the pump! I replaced the fuse and all is well including the central locking! I don\'t understand that one unless what I\'ve actually done is disconnected a connection from the alarm system to the pump.
