      Refrain (that means To hold oneself back or resist from doing, for you poo poo heads) from turning this into another one of these threads that gets locked because it's a hate filled bash-fest. Also if you are compelled to use any of the information found here please feel free but give credit where it is needed. Thank you.

      Something that has to do with the thread content. All caps halfway through is a little over bearing.

      yes it does. If you are looking for GLI information, look under MY 2012 and please note the designation AW1 vs AW0. AW1 is highline aka GLI AW0 is everything else.

      yes, the fuse panels are the same but fuse values are not. Example: Fuse 22 should be either 20 or 7.5A according to your PDF, mine is 15A.

      Also, according to your roadmap, there are no fuses in ANY of the locations designated for lighting (headlights, DRLs, foglights, etc)

      The only fuse that doesnt match 100% is 22 which could be because of a running change or because your vehicle is configured slightly differently its only 5A no big deal.

      The reason the lights arent on yours is because the GLI controld the lights through the CCM which you would know if you knew anything about your car. Please dont argue with me. Thanks.

      Ok... deep breath At no point in this thread have I been condescending towards you. This is a forum, where people come to find/share information and LEARN. I was stating that your diagram did not match what I have in my car and noted a discrepancy.

      as I've only owned this car since May, will please explain to me what the CCM is exactly. I am VERY familiar with cars, but this is my first VW.

      Sure no problem. The CCM is the module under the dash on the drivers side behind the fuse box. It controls the electrical and comfort features in the car. In the GLI the CCM is a highline module which in basic terms is like a digital clock where as the lowline CCM can be seen as a non-digital clock. The digital clock has the functions all controlled by the computer chip where as the analog clock used other separate "modules" or gears and stuff to do the same function. In terms of the CCM this means that the number of fuses and relays needed is less for the highline than the lowline. In this sense the Non-GLI is able to do many of the "highline" functions that the GLI can do, there is just more things than need to be done for them to work. Example: Rain Light Sensor, Traction Control, Puddle Lights, and more.

      Sometimes in these cars the fuse rating is less than that specified in the documented material because of a running change where they realized it did not need to be so high or that it needed to be bigger. Example the MY11 cars needed to have the fuse for the horn separated from the ECU because it was found that it was possible to blow and cause the car to become unstable while driving. Another possibility is that the fuse can accept many modules under it but maybe your car only has a few of them. In this case the fuse value may be less because it doesnt need to be that high for only half of what it was intended for.

      Only trying to pass along the correct answers and not confuse new users or others who are easily confused, thats all. No hard feelings.

      Thanks!! I've been searching for a fuse panel layout for a while, this is great. Boggles my mind VW didn't include one with the owners manual

      Hi All-
      I'm renting a 2012 Jetta from RelayRides and did the owner a favor and found & swapped out the 20A fuse for the cigarette lighter, which had a dime in it. But now the Turn Signals aren't working (blinking fast and checked outside and not working) and neither are the hazards. I'm assuming I put something back incorrectly or blew that fuse somehow?

      I looked at the diagrams/panel map on this thread and don't see anything for turn signals or hazards/emergency blinkers. Anyone know the number where this is? Thanks!

      Your issue isn't your repair, it was probably the initial "fix". Jumping a circuit like that with a dime is a MAJOR no-no

      No, I didn't jump the circuit with a dime. A dime had fallen into the cigarette lighter by some previous renter, blowing the fuse. I took out the dime, and replaced the fuse, fixing that issue. But in the process I might have put the hazard/turn signal one back in the wrong place. I don't want to mess more up, so was hoping to get the number where that one should be to check.
