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.

SOURCE: 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.

Your radio is most likely in "safe mode", an anti-theft feature. There's a 4-digit code that will need to be entered in order to get the radio operational. The code may be on a label inside the spare tire well in your trunk (some years). Otherwise the code can be obtained from the VW dealer with the car's VIN number and serial number from your radio.

SOMETIMES THE DEALER WILL BE ABLE TO ASSIST YOU WITH THIS. A PHONE CALL SHOULD RESOLVE THIS IF YOU TELL THEM YOU HAVE THE VIN NUMBER. WORST CASE SCENARIO, YOU WILL NEED TO BRING THE CAR TO THE DEALER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOUIN YOUR QUEST FOR TUNES. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. BEST OF LUCK.
