where is the switch for the rear interior courtesy light in the estate model

Asked by Feb 04, 2007 at 09:08 AM about the 1995 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GLX V6 Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear light which lights up the boot area of the VW passat estate does not function.  I have checked the bulb and bulb housing and this is fine, so no power is reachin it.  I have removed the interior pannel to the boot (tailgate) but can find no obvious clues.  There must be a micro-switch somewhere which activates the light when the bood is opened.  Any one know where it is?

Not sure that there is a micro-switch for the boot light. If could be that the fuse is blown or the wires to the light are faulty. Change the fuse. See if it makes a difference.
