hello.. please bear with me I'm not the greatest in explanation. my 2002 Passat 2.8 GLX 4motion sedan climatronic, heater, front and back defrost, heated seats, cruise control, horn and all the buttons on the horn had stopped working.. the #5 fuse had blown and when I replaced it, it immediately blew again. so after the 3rd fuse it didn't blow right away and everything was working again..I started smelling burnt wires and seen smoke..I found the burnt wires in the connector on the driver side footwell next to the hood release. my question is, what could have caused this and what's the best way to fix this? Thank you lots in advance..I have pictures I'm going to try to post here..
