    I have the same problem. After the battery mysteriously died and recharge there is no sound from the radio. Unfortunatley I don't have any instruction books for the sound system. My guess it is some "safe" security for the sound system so that it won't work if stolen. But how do I reset it?

    I have an update to my radio problem - no sound. After VW service changed a front light and couldn't find a problem with the radio. They wanted $99 to look at it - we declined. The next morning the battery was mysteriously dead again, but when I removed the key and exited the car...the radio stayed on and sound started coming out! Without the key in the ignition! After charging the battery - again, everything seems to be working fine. No error codes and the radio is playing. Any ideas on where to look for the problem. Obviously something electronic is happening and causing the battery to drain. Maybe I have VW gremlins?

I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Engine stalls while driving. Fuel deprivation?

I am having the exact same problem with my VW Touareg @60,000 miles. Two weeks ago and again today it sputters and stalls shortly after starting. I brought it into the shop and they could not reproduce the problem and said it was fine. Also, they had no ideas when I describes the problem. Anyone know what it going on? I am out of warranty.

Hopefully it's somewhere with the paper work for your car, should be 5 digits. If not the
dealer will have to get radio serial no. to obtain the code. Good luck.

Recently the battery in my 2004 Chrysler Crossfire died due to my not driving it for several months. I jumped the battery and drove it long enough to recharge, but now the speakers don't work. The radio...


maybe you need to reset the stations because the battery disconnect will cause it to loose them. try the cd to make sure its not just that , sorry if my answer sounds simple but given the info provided thats all i can give . hope it helps.

Dead Battery equals Stereo lock


You must get the 4 digit security code and enter it into the radio by pressing the AM and FM2 buttons at the same time. Then enter code via the preset buttons. Press button #1 until you get the first digit of the code then press button #2 until you get the 2nd digit and so on for the 3rd and 4th digits. when code is on the display press the AM and FM2 buttons again and radio should come back on. if it reads safe you have the wrong code #. You can get the code from a dealer for a small fee. They need to remove the radio to get a serial # on the radio chassis.

2000 Chrysler 300M CD player on strike


You will need to have the player repaired, but a new one! I really doubt, call your local dealer and ask for the number of the local company that is authorized to repair Chrysler /Dodge sound systems, do not go through the dealer, they will 2X the repair bill that the shop charges them, also you can check on the internet for automotive radio repair, call a few to get and idea of the cost, if they have exchange units inquire about this as well, fore warned is fore armed

Radio/cd player stopped working after battery replaced


Had battery replaced on 2005 DTS and afterward the radio/NAV/On-Star would not work.(Totally dead) The dealer who installed could not locate problem. (No GM dealer in Amador County, CA). I read several forums citing this/similar problems. I checked the three fuses labelled "radio, audio, NAV" by pulling, checking and reinstalling (all three were good). When I then restarted the car, everything was once again working! Poor connection? Corroded contacts? Some mysterious computer glitch? Who knows?
