Fuses and relays Volkswagen Polo 4, 2001 - 2009

The 4th generation Volkswagen Polo was produced in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 with sedan and hatchback bodies. In 2005, the car was updated and an additional model made in the off-road style of the Cross Polo was introduced. In this publication, we will show where all the electronic control units in the Volkswagen Polo 4 are located.  

Separately, we will highlight the purpose of fuses and relays with block diagrams in which they are located.

Some fuses can also be mounted in this unit, for example, an additional 40A heater.

Battery box

It is located on the battery cover. The number of fuses included in it depends on the specific vehicle configuration. The block holders can hold a maximum of 6 blade fuses and 10 blade fuses. The connection to the positive terminal is made by means of a wire with a terminal lug and a screw. Fuses protect individual on-board circuits against overloading directly at the battery output.
