This answer was rated:

hi i have a 2003 VW Passat and the fuse for heating and the cruise control keeps blowing. any suggestions
Welcome to Just Answer!!!

Please give me the exact fuse # XXXXX keeps blowing?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
one the fuse card it is fuse #5
Have you unplugged the instrument cluster to see if the fuse still pops ??
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no i have not unplugged the cluster. so you think that a fault in the cluster could be knocking out my cruise and heating controls
Well the instrument cluster is also in the circuit including the heated seats , if you turn the heated seats on do they work or do they pop the fuse right away?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the fuse blows right away if the heated seats are on or off.
Ok heres what the fuse controls the heated seats ,instrument cluster ,cruise control and the air conditioning unit you will need to unplug one by one to see which system is bringing the circuit down and popping the fuse this will not be easy but when you have a shirt this is how it will need to be done . I hope this helps.
