TDI(s): 1999 Beetle
Fuel Economy: 43 mpg
Default 99 Beetle- no headlights,w. wipers, turn lights, AC, AC fan

99 beetle, 5 spd, sudden loss of headlights, windshield wipers, turnlights, AC, AC fan, horn.
Rear lights, corner lights works, if you flash High Beams headlights works.
I've checked all fuses above battery, fuses on side of dashboard, all good.
Checked fuses below dashboard, OK, started checking Relays for click and continuity, one wasn't working properly so let's go buy new one. Couldn't, car won't start. Put "bad relay" back, car starts. Hmm.
I still didn't check combination switch above steering wheel.
Does anybody have for share Wiring diagram which says which relay is for what and wiring diagram of these areas?
Have only Hanes, not much info there.
Thanks for all your help.

It sounds like either the ignition switch or the X contact relay has failed (Which I believe is number 18?)
