I have the 1995 version and have had the same problem. For some reason, I would be driving down the road and then all of a sudden the sound would cut off. No indications on the radio. For the longest time I drove around without music, then one day I turn the volume up and it worked fine, the unit was resetting itself to the lowest volume setting for some reason.
I pulled the unit, cleaned and tightened all connectors; opened the radio up and resoldered the connection on the power board; and cleaned the connection to the antenna. I don't know which item fixed the problem because I did them all at the same time, but it worked, and so far the problem hasn't returned.
Most Golf and Jetta have their relays bunched together with the fuse block. Often, it would be inside the fuse box/compartment located under the facia panel, on the right-hand side, behind a removable cover. On most models, the flasher relay would be labeled 21.
Incidentally, sometime ago, there was a recall on some Golf where Volkswagen dealers will install a new hazard flasher switch/relay kit to remedy a common issue. You may want to try first Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
