    Yes it could well be a fuse or relay. Have a look in your owners manual for what goes where

    If it's the same as the earlier MK3's then it's fuse 17 under the dash, yellow 20 amp one and 2nd in from the right for the relay. 1st in from the right is the rear fog relay

    Do you have a diagram of how you have wired it up?

    Have you checked for a supply with a multimeter at the switch?
