I have a '97 Jetta GLX. There is a black box directly in front of the coolant reservoir containing 2 fuses (20 & 5). The reservoir overflowed and the box started smoking. I tried to replace the fuses, but the smoking continued. I drove it about 5 miles this morning, and it did not smoke. The mechanic replaced the fuses (after an incorrect diagnosis of it being an a/c coolant issue) and on the way home it started smoking again. What is that box? What are the consequences of not replacing those fuses? What are the chances of fire if I do not replace the fuses?
