2000 Passat (V6) won't start.

My mother in law's 2000 Passat (V6) won't start. She went to the store, came back out and it won't start. The battery is good tried another batter....
The power windows and locks don't seem to work. The headlights don't come on.

I am thinking blown fuse/fuses (14 poss?), or bad electrical connections somewhere. I am 5 hours drive away, so I can't diagnose it too well.

Is there a computer somewhere that the plug might have got pulled loose or has a bad connection?

Ok, so I had them check the fuses. At least fuse 14 was bad. When they attempted to replace it, poof, it blew the new fuse, so that obviously means there is a short somewhere... Anybody have wiring diagrams for these monsters?
