Hi jenalny,

The radio takes a lot less power to work than either the starter motor or the lights.... first thing I would do is, have the battery checked.....If that's ok, have the battery terminals checked and cleaned.... I don't believe it's a fuse problem

I replaced my battery and the radio does not turn on nor do the head lights. All fuses are fine. The lights show if i want to flash the brights. But nothing steady. I even replaced a bulb with no change....


Well, I guess you won't be using the radio or driving after dark

You will get the code when you spend something,
because without the scan tool it won't happen.

ABS light comes on, traction light, and airbag light. The radio turns off, and everything dims. Then the car dies & won't restart. Its not Alt or Batt.


There should be a fuse between your battery and alt. If the fuse is blown, the current isnt getting back to the batt.

Something like this also happened to my brother in his Jetta, Im not saying its the same thing but his timing belt gave out.

check the fuse on the back of the radio, i have seen these blow a couple of times. you have to remove the radio using the same tools as a ford style radio (the two prongs on each side).

Radio on VW Jetta shorts out


This is most likely a bad ground from the radio to the chasis. The louder you play it the more current it draws and the lower the voltage drops thru the resistive (bad) ground. When volatge drops below a certain point the radio shuts off.
