Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
Touch screen is blank when key is in the ignition and also when car is on. Half the steering wheel controls work: the controls for scrolling the dash info (odometer, clock) work, but the bluetooth controls and radio controls on the steering wheel do not work. I've already paid a mechanic $100 to tell me the fuses are fine. He said something about the radio not registering when the key was in the ignition, but it would take much more money to maybe finitely diagnose that. Car has 70k miles on it. No dash lights on, no airbag light. The horn used to have two sounds, a light and a heavy sound. It only has the light sound now. The light sound used to only be for locking the car, but even when I touch the horn, it has the light sound. When depressing the horn used to have the heavy sound. I do not know if that is related. Any help would be much appreciated!!!

To fix the clock and the odometer I just had to make sure there was a fuse in both places 11 and 15. I have a standard trans and one place I thought was for auto trans instrument panel lights. But both must be there. The engine check light also went off but the airbag light is still on. I was wanting to avoid going to the dealer, but I might have to so they can reset that.

SOURCE: car clicks when trying to start
When you try and start the vehicle does all the lights and radio and stuff go off? And does the starter make any weird noises when you try and start it? I would go to the parts store and ask them to check your battery if you can drive it there. lol..........they will be happy to check it out for you. Still acts like it could be a battery issue.

Sounds like the alternator / power steering belt is either loose or broken.
A new one is the only repair.
Very cheap part and Its not major work to replace
