I was trying to get the cigerette lighter to work, and this was the 30 amp fuse next to it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
prior to it not going back in the vehicle was starting good
Expert:  Billy replied 2 years ago.
Next to the cigarette lighter, on the passenger side dashboard fuse box, this would be the fuse for the fuel pump module.
Without it the vehicle would not start.
First, check if any blank fuse place has female contacts, this would need to have a fuse in it.
Having checked those (maybe you got the wrong location), then you would need to remove the fuse box, and insert the female connectors from the back in their place, and refit and insert the fuse.
I have had a few VW with the same problem (female contacts slipping out to the back.
Kindly get back to me with your findings, or if further assistance is needed.
