My 97 vw jetta gl stock radio does not work, I replaced the fuse for it but now the screen just lights up green nothing else


It's likely there is a security code for the radio which since being "disconnected" thinks the battery has been removed. Check with dealer by vin. They probably have the security code in their system.
