I never even got out of my car, I simply pulled over in a parking lot, messed with the fuses, then couldn't start the engine afterwards

Since the engine is not turning over, Do you hear any click or ticking noise when you try to start?

Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It's makes the proper loud sound that every car does, it just doesn't turn over
VW Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 4 months ago

So engine is turning but it will not crank?

Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I guess so, I'm not certain what those terms mean. But yeah it makes the normal sound that it always does when I turn the key it just never... finishes turning on?
VW Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Can you smell any gasoline smell underhood after trying to start?

Could you possibly take a picture of the fuse panel and attach it? Is your Passat the V6? How far did you drive it before pulling over and checking fuses, was it only for a minute or so?Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key to the on position?
