Fuses and relays Volkswagen Amarok, 2009 - 2016

The Volkswagen Amarok pickup was produced in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. Then the car was restyled and the updated one is being produced from 2017 to the present. There are 3 trim levels in Amarok - Trendline, Comfortline and Highline with diesel and petrol engines. In our material you can familiarize yourself with the description of fuse blocks and relays Volkswagen Amarok, their diagrams and photographs. Separately, we note the fuse for the cigarette lighter.

Location of blocks

For all Volkswagen Amarok models, the following arrangement is characteristic: the main block with fuses and relays in the passenger compartment and the block on the battery cover. But depending on the level of electrical equipment, it is possible to place both an additional unit and individual elements, especially for cars manufactured after 2013.

1 - Fuse 1 for fresh air blower -S97- and fuse 1 for ABS control unit
2 - Fuse holder C -SC- (72/68 fuses)
3 - Fuse-link block on the cover AKB (SA)
4 - Battery fuse box  (SB)

In the cabin

Main fuse box


It is located under the dashboard on the driver's side. To access the fuses, you must release the locking lever. The fuse box can then be folded down.

Photo and diagram (models from 2013 release)
Since July 2013, a new 68-socket SC fuse box (under the dash on the driver's side) has been installed on Volkswagen Amarok vehicles. It differs from the old 72-socket block first of all visually in that vertical rows of smaller fuses (MINI, 8 pieces per row) alternate with rows of larger fuses (ATO, 9 pieces per row). In the old 72 - socket block, first there were 4 rows of MINI fuses, then 4 rows of ATO fuses, 9 pieces in all rows.

It is located on a bracket on the driver's side under the dashboard. The relay box bracket is completely hidden by the instrument panel. The SC fuse box is also attached to the same bracket. There may also be an onboard power supply control unit integrated in the relay / fuse box (SC) bracket itself.

Photo - example

Under the hood

High power fuses in the form of fusible links (SA) are located under the cover on the battery. It is connected to the battery positive terminal wire. A fuse box (SB) is located nearby, protected from water by a special cap.
