      hey everyone all of a sudden my two outlets don't work. What could have caused this and how can I fix it? Usually which fuse controls the outlets? Maybe I can replace it myself?

      Thanks in advance for your replies.

      Fuse. VW changes their location from year to year. You can find your layout in the dealership.

      IT will be a 20AMP fuse in the long rectangular section, the larger fuses.

      Just pull each 20A one at a time, inspect, and put back in if okay.

      Everything was changed with the Gen3 EA888 motor.

      Like everyone said, most likely a fuse. Did you plug/unplug anything into them with the car running lately? I think it's safe to plug/unplug with car off and then turn the car on... not 100% but I guess a safer play. I had to replace mine after plugging in an air pump and I did it with the car on and blew the fuse. I linked a picture of what fuse I changed (20 amp - 2014 Jetta SE 1.8). Sorry it's blurry best I could find.

      You're just gonna have to pull each 20A fuse, one at a time and check them.
      Not the SMALL ones, the bigger ones, as I said. I don't know what your
      fuse box looks like, but that does NOT matter, just check them, simple as
      that. I had to when mine first went, didn't take more than a few minutes,
      not many 20A fuses there. Look at the picture the other person put up,
      there are only four of them there, that will take LESS than a minute to
      check...

      Not only that, as usual, you didn't specify what YEAR car, they changed
      significantly from 2015 and up. Totally different positions, and the small
      fuses are now on the right side, not the left...

      MK6 covers 2011 to current, that's a lot of years...

      Then your fuse box will look like this one:


      There are a bit more 20A fuses in these ones.

      2nd fuse from the top left is Hi-Beam Power
      3rd one over is is Lo-Beam Power

      SO, you can not bother to check those ones, I know what they are for.

      I did not go through the fuses, but one of those 20A will be for your AUX ports.
      Again, there ARE NO diagrams out there, so you are going to HAVE TO pull them
      one at a time to check them. I see you don't like that answer, but that's all there
      is too it, unless you want to pay $65.00 for the service manual fore your car...

      I am not going to go out to mine and pull them all to find out for you...

      I dropped a penny in my outlet once on a different car and blew that fuse. Make sure you don't have any liquid or metal in your outlet before you slap the new fuse in.

      Thanks a lot guys, I will do it tomorrow and give you guys an update.

      Oh to answer the questions I usually keep one of those cheap usb plugin cup looking devices plugged in so I can easily charge my phones.

      Maybe that could be it.

      All, as in every single fuse looks good? If you did check every single fuse, then
      I have no idea why they would not work.

      I read some people have 15A fuses in theirs. If you checked all the 20A, and
      not any others, then look for 15A fuses, if not, then move on to the 30A fuses.

      When I got mine, I had made all the fuses facing the same direction. Then, if I had to
      change one, turned it the other way so I knew which ones I had changed, in case
      it goes again, I can go right to it.

      Hmmm I see then I checked some 30 and 15 but I’ll check them all. Btw the way to know if they’re good is if the middle part is not broken right? Or is there another way of knowing?

      They don't always burn in the middle. Only way to 100% know, is to check it with a test light... Pulling out every fuse and visually checking is a good way when you have no tools.

      The only other issue, would be, if the power wire toasted. They both
      run off the same lead. People have reported toasted grounds on these
      too.

      I almost believe the fuse boxes in these were simply installed, rotated, 180-degrees
      clockwise. On my '13 TDI, the small fuses were on the left, and power came
      from the TOP legs of all the fuses. On this '15, the smaller fuses are to the
      right, and feed power is at the BOTTOM leg of all the fuses, like it's upside
      down and flipped... The exception is the fuse designations changed drastically.
      Instead of two 15A fuses for each lo-beam, I now have one 20A fuse.

      They're also using PWM for the headlights, and I want that disabled...

      You already were instructed to check and replace the fuse.

      But to add my experience, when I was inspecting my Jetta before purchasing, i noticed the same issue. Brought it up and the dealer checked and changed the fuse. That was the fix.

      what is wrong with you people? Did you ever consider that may be I had difficulty getting the fuse and it was more convenient to go the mechanic who lives two minutes from me and charged me exactly $0 to change the fuse.

      The assistance is valuable since when he is doing the changed I observe from an informed position.

      Glad you got it fixed ultimately, people want to see you, or anyone for that matter, succeed. That's all. People on here are taking time out of their day to help others out and it's nice to see a result, just my perspective.
