    Check your fuse panel for evidence of overheating. There's quite a few people that have had meltdowns.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I checked the fuses and they seemed fine. The day I brought my car to the VW service everything worked perfectly again. The lights were on and in working order again and I did nothing to the car but let it sit overnight. The service team also could not find any issues and told me to bring it in next time things get all funky with the lights so they can have an easier time pinpointing the problem. So far no more issues though and its been about 10 days.

    Did they tell you what the problem was? It seemed like someone did something that they would work as soon as you took it out of service.

    I had the exact same problem. I checked the fuse box under the hood. I forgot which fuse it was I believe D12 or something and it was melted. Replaced the fuse and everything was good to go. Bad thing is I did not realize this so I bought new bulbs. At first it would just be a headlight. Then a blinker. Sometimes all my lights would work on the way to school, but on the way home my whole passenger side would not work. Took it to a VW mechanic and they tried charging me all kinds of stuff just to inspect it.

    To clarify my last post my car started working properly before I took it into the shop and therefore they were unable to figure out what the problem was.

    Last week the light problem returned and it did not go away as it usually did so I took it into the shop again. This time at a different location. The problem turned out to be much more than I expected. Portions of my fuse box within the car were melting and the entire unit needed to be replaced and it cost me roughly 500 dollars. There is a 30 amp fuse located on the backside of the fusebox located within the cabin (weird location for a fuse) and it was completely melted as a result, plastic and all.

    There were also some other parts of the fusebox that were loose and wiggling because whatever was holding them in place also melted. I think it was the contacts that relay power to specific locations of the vehicle.

    This occurred by chance and I was told it was not my fault despite having custom ambient lighting and aftermarket 7" head unit. Unfortunately, there is no manufacturer recall or reimbursement program going in place. The mechanic told me it seems to be a common occurrence with the Jettas so I will be keeping my eye out for reimbursements which I guess take a while. My mother is just getting reimbursed this year for a repair she made on her long gone 2003 Honda Accord back in 2005. Hopefully we won't have to wait 8 years! a
