so we have a 2003 golf tdi, which a few months ago, a nut came loose on 75X and melted the relays and the housing for the relays. Back then the headlights, wipers, and turns didnt work and the horn was permanently on.

we replaced the wires and relays and the housing for the relays so for a few months everything worked fine.

then during this past summer, we kept on having issues where the A/C motor resisters kept burning out, so after 3 of them we replaced the motor and resistor. everything was fine for a month.

now what doesnt work...
the blower motor doesnt come on at all, even when you switch it to fan speed 4
no turns
no wipers

what does work...
headlights, hazards, radio

did some research for a week, replaced all the relays (including load reduction relay) and the ignition switch (the end with the electrical, not where the key goes in). when we were in the steering column all of the wires looked fine. jiggling the keys didnt make a difference. checked under the dash where the relays are for loose wires, etc, everything seemed fine but not 100% sure what to look for.

hopefully someone whos more familiar with the electrical system can help. thanks

yes, the ones on the side of the dash, we checked pretty much all of them but if theres a specific one we should be looking at it wont hurt to double check.

Did you check the fuses for power or just that they look good?

I would check the heavy fuses above the battery.
Check for power to the stud on both sides of the fuse.

Key on.
Check fuse 25 in the inside fuse box for power.
It's for the blower.
