Fuse Map - 2018 Atlas 3.6, 4 Motion, SEL Premium

Here is what I was able to piece together for a “Fuse Map” in my 2018 Atlas for: 1) the Engine compartment fuse Panel “B” and 2) the passenger compartment panel “C” behind the small storage door to the left of the steering wheel.
-I do not guarantee any of this so use at your own risk but I think it is good and a lot better than what I had
-Note these Fuse Panels are from my 3.6, 4Motion, SEL Premium, so different trims may be different
-Check the footnotes for some engine differences
-It really bothers me that VW does not include this in the OM like most other manufactures. If my wipers or lights fail I need to be able to check the fuse before I go begging the dealer for help at their convenience.
-I’m unsure if my postings are in the correct page order, but all pages are numbered so you can figure it out. Sorry it is a jpeg but Imgur does not support PDF or Word.

Hopefully this helps us to understand our Atlas machines a little better, enjoy!

Thanks very much. I opened all of these images and copied and pasted onto a Word document. I was then able to crop and shrink them down so that I fit the "B" panel layout and description on 1 page and the "C" panel on another. I'll keep a copy in my glovebox with the manual in case I need it. Certainly better than nothing.

fuse box mapping

My 12 volts sockets did not work. There were no fuse box diagrams as the vehicle fuse box map depends on components in the vehicle. Dealer told me what fuse controlled the 12 volt plugs. take a picture if you start pulling fuses, all the slots look the same if you drop it in the dash!!

Fuse diagram

Hello all, the fuse for the tow package lights seems to be blown, as I’m not getting any lights to my trailer. Can you please send me a copy of the wiring/fuse diagram so I can trace it? Can’t seem to find it.

Troubleshot and tested and even with a tester do not seem to have any output on the trailer socket outputs

Check out #19 above for the Fuse Map

Hello Victor, are you able to access the images in post #19 which should answer your question?

12V Fuse Replaced, now Check Engine Light is on!

My 12 volts sockets did not work. There were no fuse box diagrams as the vehicle fuse box map depends on components in the vehicle. Dealer told me what fuse controlled the 12 volt plugs. take a picture if you start pulling fuses, all the slots look the same if you drop it in the dash!!
You didn't happen to have the Check Engine Light come after replacing your 12V fuse did you? I've had my Atlas for 1 month now and have been using a portable DVD player for the kids and a phone charger at times (so using 2 of the 3 outlets only) and all was well for the entire month until all of a sudden none of the outlets would work. Found it was the 20 Amp fuse, replaced it and now getting a Check Engine Light on. Autozones error code diagnose tool gives error code U0284 and said the dealer would have to tell the meaning of the code. Still drives fine and nothing out of the ordinary. Have an appointment with dealer too, just frustrated with replacing a fuse and having Engine Light comes on now. Plus, not sure how the fuse blew to begin with. Had no issues with these same devices being used in a 2014 Dodge Durango.

Anyone else experience this? Thanks!

Side note - while trying to find the blown fuse I was checking the fuses in the engine compartment first by unplugging them and putting them back in their spot (with vehicle turned off of course). I then checked a few of them under the dash inside until I found the correct one. I'm 99% sure I put all fuses back where they go, but could a misplaced fuse cause the Check Engine Light to come on as well? I'm going to check the diagram pics that the other poster on here placed (thanks a bunch, been looking everywhere!).

I also disconnected the battery (by manuals instructions) and reconnected to see if that would reset anything. IF you ever do that, don't be alrmed by all the errors thrown at you the first time you turn it back on. Just drive a little and they'll all reset. Whew; seems to be normal when replacing the battery.

So, you caused the error and now you are confused? :screwy:

So I'm trying to hardwire my dashcam as well and bed to find a 12v hot fuse I looked at the uploaded sheets and can't really determine what fuse is hot
All of the fuses in the diagrams are 12v. Are you looking for one that has constant power instead of switched power? I wouldn't think that you want your dash cam on 24/7.

Yup sorry worded it wrong. Need constant power

Do you have test light? You could use it with the power off to check the empty slots.

So i got around to trying to figure out what fuse is constant 12v and I had another Atlas owner on IG send me a picture of where his installed tapped for the 12v constant.

When I looked at mine, it was already occupied by a square 30A fuse. So I took a guess and pulled the blue 15A fuse and used the add-a-line fuse and it worked! Also, I'll mention it again, the bolt that you readily see that holds the fuse panel IS NOT A GROUND. Use the 13mm nut that on the side of the dash (when you remove that trim piece) and ground it there.

here's the link to the picture of the fuse I used in case anyone wants to attempt.

Why wouldn't you just plug onto the ground connection block VW provides? :screwy:

Hello everyone! I’m trying to locate the fuse for the DRL (daylight running lights) on my new 2019 Atlas. I’ve been looking everywhere and I can’t find any diagram. I appreciate any help! Thank you!

it would be the one that when pulled, the DRL don't work. I would expect they are not fused directly as they are under the control of a module.
