    2015 Passat TSI Seat Heater Fuse location / Fuse

    Hello,

    This is my first post on ross-tech since purchasing the VCDS so bear with me.

    I own a 2015 Passat TSI (S)

    I have been having some HVAC problems which I may post with a full autoscan -- my car is being looked at by a certified VW tech here in St Louis -- but there is and additional issue I'd like to try to resolve myself.

    02092 - Enabling Heated Seat
    009 - Open or Short to Ground

    I would like to check the fuse on the front heated seats as a first step but can't seem to find a fuse diagram that matches the configuration in my car. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    CLW

    Please see Where do I get a Wiring Diagram.

    Register with erWin, pay $35 for 24 hours of access, put in your VIN, then download (or print to PDF) all the info available for your car.

    Uwe,

    Thanks for replying. I know you by reputation and appreciate your response--and the amazing product VCDS is!

    I probably should do that.

    Rant: why are fuse diagrams so hard to find, in general? This should be an item more accessible to the "end consumer". I'v seen with the fuse diagram in the manual or on the fuse box; why isn't this universal? /end rant

    You want my guess?

    As complicated as the electrical systems are now, one fuse may power multiple things and the descriptions of all the stuff that fuse powers wouldn't fit on a traditional fuse diagram. Hence the only "right" way is to find the thing that isn't getting powered in the wiring diagram and trace back from there.

    The first cars I owned had just 2 fuses - one for non-ignition consumers and another for ignition switch consumers.

    Meant some strange things could happen - on one car when it was raining and I pressed the brake pedal the wipers stopped. How so? Because the ignition switched fuse had corrosion on the contacts!

    Were these by chance British cars?

    That made good sense.

    I downloaded as much as I would have use of from the erWin site. It told me that the fuse was location SC33, which was missing. Problem solved! Heated seats now working.

    Can VCDS clear just this trouble code or will it clear all at once?

    Thank you for your help.

    I would clear it with VCDS.

    I do not know if it would eventually clear itself.
