Ok this is not fuse related you have a issue with the heater core being clogged there is a technical bulletin that volkswagen came out with that states that you will need to flush the system after the new heater core is installed in a certain manner common issue for the tai model Passat and Jetta we do about 1 a week in the winter for this issue . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided if ou would like i can also do a phone call
