Luggage Compartment Light

Asked by Aug 20, 2014 at 08:33 PM about the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: General

If I leave the hatch open all night in my VW Jetta Wagon, will the luggage compartment
light being on all night run down my battery?  I'm worried about having a dead battery in
the morning.

Unless you have upgraded the lighting to LED's then yes most likely there won't be enough power in the battery to crank the engine.

If you have "battery run down protection" no. After about 10 minutes the computer will shut it off. Leave it open when you can watch it for about 10 minutes or so. If the light goes out by itself you'll be ok. HTH. -Jim
