Right, so we settled looking at fuses to fix our cigar lighter, moved a fuse since it was blown to test, it all worked so I put the blown fuse back in and placed the good fuse back into its original place, it now doesnt start,
Any ideas?

What year new beetle? If a immobilizer issue; try a hard reset or check for trouble codes? Beyond that: basics, like spark, related other fuses and fuel pressure should be checked.

If it's an immobilizer issue from memory I'm sure there is a key warning lamp in the top of the instrument cluster that illuminates in amber. If this is the case, doing a locking code reset with the remote may sort, if not a battery disconnection and reconnection may sort it. Of ot isn't this, my advice is look at the number of the fuse you disconnected and trace what the fuse actually does.
PS, not suggesting you made a mistake, but we all do from time to time, check the blown fuse didn't get refitted to the donor fuse position by accident.
