You probably figured this out by now but it's space 30 - top row (20 amp fuse). I have a 2013 2.5 SE. The socket wasn't live when I bought the car (it was a rental). Replaced the fuse and no problems for months now. I think a piece of foil may of fallen into the socket. Not sure if that would short it out or not. I had the same problem you have, couldn't find the info anywhere but finally got the info somewhere online, pulled the fuse and it was fried. Good luck!

Number 30 the right fuse for the 2013 Jetta cigarette lighter or car charger. A five minute project for a ford or chevy just turned into 3 hours because VW does not post the information on their fuse box anywhere. Absolutely ridiculous and just designed to waste your day or money to go to a dealership.

I'm having this problem as well. All fuses, under dash AND hood are good. Still no power. I'm thinking it might be the sockets them selves. Any answeres.

My fuse in my 2013 Jetta was the 30amp on the top of the row on the big fuse side, counting from the left side top it’s the 6th one , for the lighter fuse.


Maybe not a piece of foil but if you have pennies around it that definitely did it so every once in awhile just checking there and make sure y'all know pennies so if you keep change stored on your door or in the back seat on the floor but nowhere near any USB ports lighter socket or you're definitely going to be changing your views on the

Does anyone know what fuses are for the trunk and horn? I have a 2013 Jetta

My son dropped a penny in his and it must have shorted out both cigarette outlets (front and back). The 20 amp fuse in space 30 was actually fine. It was the 25 amp in space 28 that was fried. Replaced it and everything works fine now.
