The fusebox is on the drivers side, accessible when the driver's door is open, just below and forward of the switch for the lights.

My stereo did not work when I started my car one evening. I have read on wikianswers that it was fuse 37 or 42. Both fuses were fine, but upon reseating fuse 42 the cd player ejected the CD. When I turned the car on again it worked fine.

So I'd check those two fuses out. There should be a fuse card in the fuse box that show where each is. Lacking that, fuse 37 is the very bottom fuse in the middle row of larger fuses. Fuse 42 (my problematic one) is the 3rd fuse up on the right hand row of larger fuses.

Good luck!

Simply need to know if there is a secondary fuse box in my 95 vw golf gti or at least a secondary radio fuse. I am having difficulties getting power to my ignition wire for the stereo

Their are three wires that should be hot to the radio plug the lights on wire the all the time wire and the key on wire. Your saying that the key on wire doesn't work but the other two are good. The number 20 fuse 10 amp is the cigar lighter and the key on power if the cigar lighter works the fuse is good the trunk opener works on the same fuse.

02 VW GTI Radio says CHECK

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.
