Default Request: Fuse Box list for Golf IV

Does anyone have a list (or a link) of fuses on a Golf IV (1999.5 in particular) and recommended amperages for these fuses?

The little picture card on the fuse box door is much too cryptic and doesn't have recommended amps.

I want to make some electrical changes and I need this list before I start. Here are some of the things I'm considering;

1. Rewire the console 12V power outlet to switched (from always on). This way, I can leave things plugged in without worrying about a vampire charge leak. I could do this by inserting a relay in the existing feed line, or by using available swithced power if the Amps are available.

2. Add a switched power point in the rear (or put an optional SPDT behind the current power point to select switched vs. unswitched).

3. Upgrading the interior lighting (e.g. Some Audi style puddle lights on the bottom of the front doors would be nice).

4. Install a pair of 120VAC 3-prong sockets. I've been carrying around a 100 Watt invertor which plugs into my front power point. What I'd like to do it put it out of sight and to upgrade it to perhaps as much as 500 Watts (for short times), and have it controlled by a relay, so it cannot easily drain the battery by accident.

I'm also curious about the "missing" fuses in my box, and wonder what use I could make of them [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
