      Has also happened to my brothers 07 passat b6, and sisters 06 passat b6. Dealer fixed my sisters with a fuse change. But that fuse is in a different location from my brothers 07.

      I recently changed mine on my jetta...not sure if it would be the same

      the manual says there are multiple fuses - i also noticed that there were separate ones for "power outlet" and "cigarette lighter"

      hope this helps

      Check inside the outlet(s) for loose change.

      Check every fuse with a volt meter. They may look good but are blown.

      i've found the fuse diagrams to be pretty useless. there are so many different versions on the mkv. the manual that came with my car doens't match my fuse panel at all.
      There's a little bit of rice in all of us.

      You are right, the fuse charts in the owners manuals are close to useless.
      Probably the only way to obtain a reasonably accurate fuse chart is from the
      Bentley Publishers - VW Repair / Service Manual that covers your model mk5.
      The fuse charts provided there are grouped by build date (placard on drivers door jamb).
      For example, my '06 a5g is covered by either a DVD-ROM version or a paper version.

      The ones in my 2006 GLI were blown as well. Both 25 amp fuses. Believe they were #s 24 and 25. HTH.

      2010 Jetta, my front 12v never worked since in got the car 2 years ago, haven't checked the others though and never needed it badly enough to fix it (or try to), but now that its on my mind i'll have a look.
