Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T: My center low tail lights on the trunk…

Customer Question
My center low tail lights...
My center low tail lights on the trunk lid are not working. Including brake lights. I would like to know which fuse to check, but of course it's not in the manual.

Side brake lights work, so does turn signal. No inside brake or tail light.

While I check the diagram. The trunk needs to be closed to make sure the lights work. Some jettas if the trunk is open the deck lid lights will not work
