2002 Jetta stereo isn't working

My Jetta's stereo just quit working. The security light blinks, but its not saying anything. Nothing works. I've had my fuses checked and there's nothing wrong with the power supply. I am 100% sure that I just need to buy a new stereo. I was told to get a second opinion, which is why I came here.

My 1999 chevy blazer doesn't even try to start the security (factoryinstalled) blinks constantly. I was told it may be the pass lock system any ideas?

The pass key system isn't working. Make sure your using the same key.There is a piece where a wire brakes in the steering column. Part is cheap but steering wheel needs to be pulled. And dealer needs to reprogram it.

My 2002 Alero wont start and the security light stay on. ive tried turning the key on, waiting 10 minutes, turning the key off, and then starting it but nothing happens. nothing is working. what should i...

Since you've tried the 10 minute relearn process with no luck, Try this same process 3 x in a row without trying to start in between. Will take a little over a half hour. If this still does not work, and the security light is solid (not flashing) this indicates a bad TDM. (passlock security computer)(Theft Deterrent Module). A new one will cost about 700 bucks. But this entire system is able to be bypassed permanently. If all else fails, check out this link. Its full of info on how the system works, along with "do it yourself" ways to fix it.

Why is there a blinking red light next to the CD player? It blinks all night , but turns off when I start the car .Is it a stereo problem??

Check owners manual but I'm guessing it's to make any thieves aware that it has a security lock, so if stolen and they don't have the proper code to enter when stereo is hooked back up somewhere else, then it won't work, to deter theft.
