Hello. I just bought a 2006 Jetta 2.5 automatic. The car dealership that sold it to me had to repair the headliner. The reason I mention that is because, although I really didn't notice before, (just one of those things you take for granted that all the interior lights work), neither one of the reading/map lights are working and neither is the driver side vanity light mirror. The interior light in the back on the ceiling works and so do all the interior lights on all 4 doors and the passenger side vanity mirror light works as well. The reason I mention the headliner replacement is because I wonder if its possible that they failed to reconnect any wires that make the lights work. Either than that, to me it can only be two other things, the light bulbs need replaced or there is a fuse that needs replaced. I do not see anything other than an interior lights fuse in the fuse box located inside the vehicle. The Jetta I have has a model 30 fuse box under the hood and I don't see any possibilities for a fuse replacement in there either. Please advise. Thank you.

Have you spoken to the dealership about the lights being inop?It wouldn't be a fuse all the lights should be on the same fuse.I suspect some of those lights were left unplugged thats a lot of bulbs to be burned out.

Follow up to the interior lights. That's what it was, they forgot to reconnect them. Thanks again.

On another note, I have an ongoing check engine/gas cap light issue. I have gotten a vacuum leak fixed, bought a new gas cap and had the valve cover replaced that I was told, as an educated guess, was the problem. After I had the valve cover replaced with a brand new one, I drove it for a few days with no issues. I then drove to Indianapolis which is about a 4 hour trip from my residence. The trip there was no problem and I arrived Thursday evening with no issues. The next day, Friday, the gas cap light came on. When I shut the car off and got back in a couple hours later, the light did not come on. The next day (Saturday) while driving on the highway for about 30 minutes, the check engine light reappeared and has been on ever since. The past 2 mornings the gas cap light has joined the check engine light as I have about an hour drive to work. It has not appeared on the way home for some reason, but the check engine light has been constant since Saturday, so 5 days and counting. It is not blinking or anything, just a solid check engine light. I don't have any error codes as I lost them, but I do know when it was coming on the first time, the codes were emissions related. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
