VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 09, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . there have been numerous problems with the electrical system in my car. most of which have been unfounded by the dealership. in most cases it is my windows that do not obey comands. if i push the window up button, the windows may roll themselves down or go all the way up instead of just a little bit up. same on the down. sometimes the pinch control will activate itself and the window (which i think is closing) will roll down. this is not a safety concern per say but i am concerned that i may be unaware of the window being down and my dog might jump out causing an accident, or it might draw my attention away from driving while i try to figure out what is going on, again, possibly causing an accident. the car has been in a few times for this problem but the dealership says they "can't duplicate the problem" and refuse to do anything about it. another problem is that the radio stays on sometimes when i am exiting the car, again not a safety issue, but it really lets me believe there is an electrical problem with the car. i have also had a blown fuse-causing the epc-light to come on... it was for the rear brakes. the lights wouldn't turn off after i was out of the car..Mileage was 1000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 27, 2003.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW . i was driving down a city street and stopped at a red light. i proceeded to make a right hand turn; about midway through the turn my drivers' side front and rear side curtain air bags as well as the drivers' seat airbag deployed. there is a pot hole at that intersection, however i do not remember hitting it, i only remember getting hit in the head by the airbag. if i had hit the pot hole, the airbags still should have not deployed because i was only going at most 10mph, the rims nor the tires were damaged. there was no damage to the car at all besides the airbags. the police were contacted, they would not fill out a complaint since there wasn't actually an accident. i then contacted the local dealership and they said they would fix it since it's under warranty. however vw america had a different idea. they told the dealership not to fix it and that we would have to file with our insurance because there were crash data codes. they did not bother reading the codes to see how fast i was driving, but they decided it was my fault since the alignment was off, therefore i must have hit a pothole. after 3 weeks of fighting with vw america, we filed a complaint with the better business bureau, after 2 weeks of waiting to hear from them, they also said they could not help, they stopped helping airbag deployment accident victims over a year ago. we filed a claim with our insurance and had to pay the deductible. we are currently filing a complaint with the state for the pothole that allegedly caused the airbag deployment. i have constant headaches as a result of getting hit in the head by the airbags. i will never again own a volkswagen, they are unsafe vehicles and the way they treat their customers is unacceptable! *ak.1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 21000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 14, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with VISIBILITY:SUN ROOF ASSEMBLY . on feb. 14, 2006, i was driving 65 mph on freeway, experienced loud explosion-type noise - after coming to reality and out of shock realized sunroof was blown out - and i was covered in glass - first reaction was to believe that i had been shot with gun or that something was thrown from overpass - after police investigation, photographs by dealership and dozens of eyewitnesses viewing the remaining out glass of the sunroof (that was still attached but shattered) was pointed in an upward position towards sky - not into vehicle as if it imploded from the interior to exterior - everyone determined that it had not been struck by anything but rather just blew out. this was very frightening and dangerous - i could have been injured by the glass or been involved in an accident from the incident. everyone sent photos and spoke to volkswagen of america - they do not care - and refuse to cover under warranty or even question me about incident even though - i have informed that i am fearful to even drive vehicle now - everyone that saw the car in person - is in awe and thinks this is weird - however, vw america the only party who did not see the vehicle in person - is still sticking by their answer that it was caused by something striking the car - there are other people with other types of cars on the internet with this same experience and they also know that they were not struck - i had a police report and photos with proof that the glass blew from the interior out - vw is showing negligence towards me and other drivers. this is the 10th odd incident that i have had with vw - and the second safety hazard - i am trying to get out of the lease because i am too scared to drive the car now. they need to be held responsible - and i am appalled that they were not even concerned with my safety or if i had injuries. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3VWSE69MX3M.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . as i was pulling out of a grocery store parking lot, my 2003 jetta gli vr6 began to sputter and lose power. engine light came on and would stay lit or start blinking as i tried to drive home. i contacted vw roadside assistance along with my vw dealership (strong vw, slc ut), and they informed me that i must bring it in. seeing that i was barely going to make it home i contacted roadside assistance which was provided with my jetta and they informed me that they could tow it to the nearest vw dealership (not where i originally purchased or had my car serviced) to have it looked at. needless to say it was actually closer for me to drop off the jetta at the nearest dealership rather than take it home, so i did that. i found out the following morning that the ignition coils were bad and needed to be replaced. that was done under warranty and apparently everything was fine. three days later, each and every time i started my jetta a noxious smell would fill the cabin. i reported this to my original dealership and had it in for service to fix the problem. after 5 days of trying to determine what the problem was they informed that since they couldn't duplicate the problem that there was nothing they could do. ironically it hasn't happened since. my major complaint is that in the year and a half that i have owned my jetta, i have had it in for non-traditional or non-scheduled service more than 3 times. my major fear is that when the warranty runs out what will happen next. i have been a loyal vw customer for 20+ years and haven't had this many problems with my previous 4 vw vehicles combined. sadly enough, i possibly may never buy or lease a vw again! *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45900 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 31, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . a week before this incident speedometer quit. non vw repair shop replaced speed sensor, this did not fix speedometer problem so they sent me to ny vw dealer who replaced crank sensor. could not even drive car out of their lot after the repair as car was stalling and hesitating. they then said i needed to replace needle lift sensor. i begged them at that point to look for a wiring problem or electrical system problem because i couldn't believe that 3 sensors could all go at once without a system cause. i was told to "trust them" and that they had checked with vw and vw said that was all they could do. "the diagnostic computer said that is all that is wrong" . after week in repair shop vw dealer told me car was "all fixed". 3 days and 300 miles later on i-83 south of harrisburg car began jerking and lurching out of control, then stalled. i was near exit 32 and was able to get off safely, fortunately. had to be towed to vw dealer. now vw dealer in pa tells me car had "coolant migration" which was source of all problems, they think dealer in ny should have caught it. vw is backing ny dealer that they fixed car correctly despite other dealers comment and my near miss with being crashed into by other drivers on i-83. i fail to see how coolant migration happened in 3 days and 300 miles. pa vw dealer says ny dealer should not have missed the coolant migration, and should not have replaced the expensive sensors before repairing the coolant migration problem. i certainly agree since i traveled less than 300 miles and i was just lucky that i was so close to an exit and was able to keep restarting the car and coast off i-83. had i been further away from an exit or in heavier traffic i could easily have been run into by another driver as the car lurched and jerked and stalled. i also fail to understand why vw is not responsible. obviously this problem started while the car was still in warranty -pa dealer said engine was "very corroded" and the wiring was "full of coolant". *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 67500 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Aug 04, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . my wife's 2003 vw jetta tdi brakes will aggressively lock-up when lightly depressed for slowing down or coming to a slow stop. the problem is intermittent and will occur without warning. when the brakes lock up they can only be released after placing your foot under the pedal and forcing the pedal backwards. in the event another diver follows too close, the failure will result in a rear end collision potentially causing serious injuries to both parties. after experiencing the defect the car was immediately taken to the vw dealer for service and we received a "no fault found report". now the problem has become severe and is a major safety concern for my wife and i. earlier this year, the alternator pulley bearings seized and the pulley was ejected from the alternator causing damage to other engine components in the serpentine system. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 16, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS:SWITCH . i purchased a 2003 vw jetta tdi wagon about a year ago, used. this car has been really great to me thus far, until my glow plug light started flashing at me the other day. after checking the manual, which basically said there was an internal error, and not much more, i decided to check the internet for more information. the search results mentioned that it is most likely a brake light switch problem and either the brake lights stay on, or shut off completely. so, after my wife checked the back of the car while i pressed on the brakes, sure enough, my brake lights no longer work! i checked the web some more, and it looks as if there was a recall for 98-02 jettas for the very same problem. being that mine is a 2003, my car does not fall under the recall! i did some more searches, and http://forums.vwvortex.com i found this thread, which details a diy method of replacing this $10 part. i'd rather do this myself if i have to pay the dealership to what amounts to an extortion fee for this 5 minute job. in my humble opinion, i think vw should replace this part, free of charge. i really think there should be a recall on my jetta model because the failure of the brake light switch could cause a serious accident if people behind you aren't warned when you brake. the fact that the warning lights do not mention what type of a problem this is would further lead to more confusion. the fact that this problem makes my car illegal to drive because of the failure of the brake lights further complicates the process of bringing in this car to the dealership. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 96200 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2006.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS:SWITCH . driving on the highway at night i noticed that my cruise control was inoperative. i researched the problem when i got home on a vw related website and found out that this was most likely due to a brake light switch located under the driver near the brake pedal. when the brake light switch is not working it causes the cruise control to also stop working. what i also found out is that since this switch was broken all my brake lights were not functioning. there would have been no way for me to become aware that my brake lights were not functioning unless i had connected the problem by researching it online. this poses a serious safety risk for those who would not associate a cruise control problem with the brake switch and therefore be driving around unknowingly without brake lights and could cause an accident by not having the proper brake lights operational. fortunately in my situation it did not result in a rear end collision. i understand that vwofa has issued a recall for 1999-2002 models and i have a 2003 jetta. it frustrates me that vw is not responsible enough to extend this warranty to later model years as the part has not changed. in my opinion they wait until they get enough complaints for the newer years before they authorize recalls for those years. (the 2004's will fail later and so on and so on). the part number that failed on my car is 1j0 945 511 c (on my car, but current part number is f revision). i hope that this complaint will get vwofa to be responsible for this serious safety related issue. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 63000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2007.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with TIRES:SIDEWALL . i own a 2003 volkswagon jetta that came with goodyear tires. at 20,435 thousand miles i got my first flat tire. when a second tire went flat less than 2 months later, i decided to purchase a full set of different tires. when the old tires were removed there was severe cracking and "tears" in the walls of the tires. i maintain my vehicle so there was no reason as to why the tires went flat. i live in a safe neighboorhood and had my car for a year before the tires started to go flat. i did not drive through any construction sites and there was no sign this was vandalism since the cuts were on the inside of the wheel. luckily, neither of the flats happened on a major highway because i could have lost complete control of my car. when my tires were replaced the mechanic told me that i was basicaly driving on "time bombs" and that it was good that i came in. he then proceeded to show me other tires with the same characteristics. i could not believe goodyear had a line of defective tires and they were doing nothing about it. with a name like goodyear i would have thought they would have cared more about their customers. aside from the tears, the tires are still in good shape with the tread barely worn down. most tires last 40,000 plus miles, i got my first flat tire at half that. now, i am out over $500.00 because i had to purchase a whole new set of tires. i think it is outrageous goodyear has not offered to pay any of that. i kept the tires as proof and i have many pictures. apparently they only pay attention to people who get injured..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 20000 miles.

(as long as my car is under warranty.) today the fourth ignition coil failed and i am now outside of my warranty coverage. (warranty ended 2-28-07.) i contacted vw customer service to file another complaint and was instructed that i will be responsible for the repairs as the car is no longer under warranty. upon receiving this information, i researched the issue and found nhtsa action number dp05004, which indicates that vw issued customer service campaigns on 1-31-03, 6-6-03, 12-03 and 1-04 instructing dealers to replace all ignition coil packs in model year 2000-2003 volkswagen jettas. upon finding this information, i called vw customer service again to see if my car would be covered and was informed that my vin was not covered by the csc, as csc's are vin specific, not model/year specific. i would like the nhtsa to re-open action number dp05004. the ignition coil issue is still occurring, and vw is not authorizing dealers to replace all of the suspect ignition coils as indicated when this action number was closed. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 49865 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 08, 2008.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i turned on the driver's seat heater to 5 (highest setting) on my 2003 vw jetta tdi when leaving my house at 7 am. i used this regularly to warm the seat for a few minutes on cold mornings, then would turn it off (lower settings never produced noticeable heat). within one minute i felt a burning/electrical sensation in my upper left thigh. i was driving on a mountain road and the pain made me jump in my seat and nearly lose control of the car. i pulled over and turned off the seat heater (having heard of problems with the heater). the leather seat had a blister about the size of a cigarette burn but had not burned completely through. while i stopped the heater before it burned through the seat (and my pants), the real danger was in a possible accident from the burn/shock that caused me to momentarily lose control of the car. the seat heater is no longer safe to operate. my understanding from reading similar posts here and elsewhere is that the wiring is now broken in the seat (and many have had it break in the same spot). if i had not guessed the source of the problem quickly, or if someone were to unknowingly use the heat setter in the future, it could lead to a serious accident, personal injury, and car fire. similarly, this poses a serious risk for other drivers of these vehicles who may not be aware of the problem and react too late. i request that the nhtsa urge vw of america to issue a recall on this dangerous and pervasive problem (many reports here and elsewhere, such as tdiclub.com and vwvortex.com). vw has issued a recall on this problem in canada but not in the u.s. they also have a voluntary repair for passats of similar years, but not jettas or golfs. thank you. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 85000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 28, 2005.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . on march 1, 2004, i purchased and financed a 2003 jetta tdi from the vw dealership in chico, ca. i began to experience problems with my new vehicle in late november 2005, with mileage at 47399. i suffered intermittent loss of power when accelerating onto the freeway and in traveling up hills. during the loss of power, i also noticed that i could not hear the whine of the turbo and assumed that the problem must be related to my turbo. the chico dealer test drove the car for approximately 25 miles with a scan tool but was unable to verify my complaint. unfortunately, the problem with the turbo persisted. i brought my car back to the chico dealership on january 7, 2006, with mileage at 50856. once again, the chico dealer was unable to verify my complaint because their scan tool did not pull a code. the chico dealer stated that they would replace the mass air flow sensor in an attempt to resolve my complaint regarding the loss of power. the mass air flow sensor was replaced by the chico dealer on january 7, 2006. feeling defeated and frustrated, i suffered through the turbo problem for another year. during this time, i was forced to take extra special precaution when entering the freeway in case my turbo failed to respond upon acceleration. in addition, when i experienced a loss power traveling up-hill, i was forced to utilize my hazard signal and move to either the slow lane or the shoulder of the road to allow other vehicles to pass me. when my turbo failed to respond properly, my vehicle would only travel at a maximum of 45-55 mph when accelerating onto the freeway and 35-45 mph when traveling up-hill. needless to say, even large semi-trucks passed me traveling up-hill. the problem with my turbo jeopardized my safety and that of my passengers¿ as well as those traveling around us. this has gone on too long without the proper attention to my concerns and i feel unsafe while traveling in my vw. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 47423 miles.

(didn't help my comfort that the outside temp was near 100 degrees and i'm driving along with sunroof open, windows open, and heater turned on high!) i was concerned that my leg was burned as well because the air blowing from vent was so hot. i had to idle the car every few thousand feet to allow car to cool enough to limp to service station. first time (july 06, car w/i warranty @ 32k miles), vw told me that the fuse was blown; they were unable to replicate and indicated that if it happened again they would need to figure out why. second time (nov. 2007, car out of warranty @ 51k)), non-vw mechanic able to replicate and said that fuse blew because "cooling fans are drawing too many amps (up to 100 amps) when starting. when running they are still drawing 37 amps and should be less than 20 amps." although this has happened only twice, and i have yet to repair (too expensive at $800+ and i'm unemployed), i live in great fear as warm weather approaches that i will be "burned" by this issue again. it's only a matter of time. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 32584 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 03, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . after taking my 2003 vw jetta 1.8l turbo to the vw dealership for a broken dipstick and ignition recall, i was told there was sludge in the engine in which the car had under 68,000 miles. the dealership stated it was not under the manufactures warranty and would cost at least $900 to clean out the engine. upon deciding to take it to a mechanic for a 2nd opinion, the car seized up and ceased to work while driving. the mechanic informed me that the entire engine was blown from the sludge build up when oil changes had been performed at 3,000 mile intervals though the manufactures owners manual stated it only had to be changed every 5,000 miles. the dealership stated there was nothing they could do about it other than for me to purchase a new engine or a rebuilt engine. after having a used engine installed from a salvage yard, i discovered from the car pouring smoke and making a high pitched whining noise. apparently when the original engine went it also damaged the turbo as a result of sludge build up. i've further discovered after doing some research that this is a common problem to vw cars with 1.8 liter turbo engines from models following 2000. unfortunately because the turbo is considered an accessory to the engine, the turbo was not covered under the salvage yards engine warranty i just had installed and would require the turbo being replaced as well. the vw dealership informed me that a rebuilt turbo would cost $1700 alone not including small parts and labor after i had already spent $2800 on a used 1.8l turbo engine and small parts and labor. the used engine had 46,000 miles on it so it is highly likely that it will also go due to engine sludge. *tr.Mileage was 67491 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 03, 2010.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA, INC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . as we were driving home, all the lights on the dash started blinking. the accelerator pedal stopped working in the middle of a busy intersection. the car engine continued running, but it just stalled in the middle of traffic and could not accelerate to get out of traffic. so we coasted the car for about 1.5 miles to a family members house. when we arrived, we turned off the car and tried to restart it, it would not start. after opening the hood we noticed that the fuse box/harness that sits on the battery was very hot. we opened it and saw the far left black wire/cable was burnt up and melting the plastic in the harness. the black wire was extremely hot. i had this problem before, it was 3 years ago, but i did not know where to look. i spent over $500 fixing what seems to me the same problem as before. on the dealership receipt it said "found generator harness at battery fuse box melted causing high resistance in voltage circuit.....replaced fuse box and generator cable". on that occurrence it was so bad the burns had ruined my battery causing it to leak. i called vw manufacturing, but they were not very helpful and just told me to call my local dealer for assistance. they said it was not a safety issue, even if there was a fire hazard. my car is currently being looked, looking for an underlying cause for this...if it is the cable or something else in the engine. the connection was reset but the wire/cable continued to get excessively hot. *tr.Mileage was 111000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2012.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i started experiencing a hot spot in the driver's heated seat in the fall of 2012. i have to put a cushion between my right leg and the seat or it will nearly burn. i have also been having an issue with either the o2 sensor or catalytic converter whenever it rains and it's cool weather. the car will lose power, sputter and lurch until it has been running for a while then it acts normally. finally, for the past two months the rear door locks will not open with the keyless entry or by hitting the lock/unlock button on the door. i just reached the 100k mark and keep up regular maintenance on my car so i'm a little upset that things like this are happening so early. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 90000 miles.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 12, 2012.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen of America, Inc. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . all warning indicators (abs, cel, airbag, ecp, battery and other instrument dash panel lights) would flicker repetitively until the car lost all power. after inspection of the engine compartment it was found that the alternator cable that attaches to the fuse box located on top of the battery was melting the fuse box and causing power distribution problems. the volkswagen dealer recommended that they both be replaced as the cable could have become high resistance thereby causing excessive heat at the fuse box. i had the alternator cable replaced with an oem part and the fuse box with an aftermarket part. on 10-9-13 with 104k miles while driving to work at 6am in the morning, the exact same symptoms were experienced again. luckily i was on a side road and was towed to a dealer which said that all oem parts should be used and that this is common as they had just replaced the alternator cable on another jetta of the same generation. i requested the dealer check the entire electrical system including the alternator because the parts that were installed last year should not go bad in 1 year, the dealer said there was no other issue. i am not the only one experiencing a melting fuse box. at the links below are others who have experienced the same thing, even across other vw models. there seems to be a serious problem of melting of fuse boxes which can occur at any time the vehicle is in operation.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 16, 2014.VOLKSWAGEN JETTA 2003, manufactured by Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . the day before the car quit, it would not start after being parked in the mall parking lot. a battery pack got it started, and it was driven home, with the thought that it needed a new battery. the following day, it was being driven to the local sears, for a replacement battery, when the abs and airbag lights came on. 30 seconds later lots of warning lights came on, and the car sputtered and stopped dead in the lane of travel. it would not turn over, and power accessories would not work. i was stopped on a very busy 2 lane back road, with no shoulders or side streets, uphill, on a blind hill. after 1 1/2 hours of white-knuckle directing traffic, and calls to: my auto club, and the local police; a local police officer, and a local tow truck showed up and gave me a lift to my repair shop. the mechanic's diagnosis of the problem was a partially melted fuse pack, that sits on top of the battery, and an overly resistive cable between the fuse pack and the alternator. the solution was: the cable end linked to the fuse pack was re-terminated, and the melted fuse pack was replaced. between the tow and the repair, it set me back about $300.00. i also found a blog that listed many other vw owners with the same problem: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4986219-fuse-box-above-battery-melting . i also discovered a class action law suit that was filed in 2012, that was based on this problem: http://gotaclassaction.com/volkswagen-named-in-class-action-over-fuse-boxalternator-cable-assembly/ . i hope that the current repair holds for the near future. clearly, a fuse should blow before the overall fuse pack melts. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 116898 miles.
