Question about 2002 Volkswagen GTI
I have a 2002 VW GTI and the radio wont turn on at all. All the display says is ''CHECK''. I took the fuses out and checked them, they are all good. The problem isnt the fuses. What could be causing this problem?
This worked for me (radio in 2003 VW Golf):
Radio says "CHECK" but is otherwise unresponsive. Turning car or radio on/off doesn't help.
On the far right of the radio, there's a round TUNER button. Press it for 5 seconds. Your screen will then show some digits, but the unit is still unresponsive.
Press tuner button again for 5 seconds. Radio should now be 100% again. Let me know if this works for you.

There is an in-line fuse on the back of factory radios.

Pushing the tuner button twice for 5 seconds worked for me, but I turned the radio on first so "CHECK" was displayed - pressed tuner knob for 5 seconds until 4 digits were displayed - turned the radio off, turned the radio back on so "CHECK" was displayed - pressed tuner knob for 5 seconds... until the radio started working.

3. The message "check" press tuner knob 5 seg
4.the radio show 4 numbers, this number its number for activate the radio when you radio need activate,
5.press up arrow, (this is for seek stations)

To reprogram the
radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted,
your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your
a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.
