I didn't even think to ask if it was the right amperage fuse. K.I.S.S- keep it simple stupid.
Who knows, the electronic stuff on these cars sometimes has a mind of its own.

Believe me it was the right amperage fuse ....i went through enough of them .......lol
Problem has not come back yet. Im convinced the I must of moved something and now its not grounding itself causing the fuse not to blow.......to be followed.

Default Tech tip to pass along

IMO, VW seems to be the most unreliable when it comes to fuse diagrams.
I don't recall even a label inside the fuse cover of the driver side dash fuse box.
Lord knows the Jetta's owners manual wasn't that accurate with its fuse diagrams.
I have found it a good practice to open up the various fuse,relay box covers and take good close up pictures. I did this on my cars when they were new, so the photos would be accurate.
Take photos when the car is running good without any troubles.
This way you have an accurate picture of what fuse goes where.
You know which fuse positions should be vacant or have a fuse installed, you know what color fuse goes in each position and therefore it's amp rating.
It's easy to pull out a fuse and put it back in the incorrect position.

Just wondering if you had found the problem and this was another dead end thread that you had complained about in your very own post? Or did you never find the issue?

Default You couldn't make this up !

EZTiger 12 - Thank you for what looks on the surface anyway like a ridiculous addition to the post. How could that have fixed the issue, it makes no sense !
Well, I shared your frustration attempting to fix this issue on my wifes car and in desperation tried your fix - I'm mad right ?
I took a blown fuse and soldered two wires to the pins (after exposing them) and then to a 12v brake light bulb that was lying around. I didn't go as far as breaking the glass, I didn't need to.
I plugged it onto #4 fuse holder and the bulb illuminated, then it dimmed, then it got bright again and dimmed once more. This went on for 30 seconds or so until the bulb went out and stayed that way.
That fixed the issue, I put in a fresh fuse and its worked to this day ! (months ago). I don't do forums, I guess you would call me a lurker but I had to join (I will revert to lurking following this post) and pass this on, just because its total madness but it did work !.
I hope this helps someone in the future because the fault was causing significant hair loss..

It might have been the G65 High pressure AC switch. I had exactly the same issue (and I suspect that you have actually read my posting when you have mentioned in your initial posting that you have read about it somewhere on this forum). I tend to believe that something was casing a short in the G65 sensor switch and the short was somehow eliminated when you have removed and re-installed it.
