2010 Jetta TDi No Power to Radio

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!!!

SOURCE: SRS light stays on

This is most likely a wiring issue in the steering column.  I advise you not to attempt to repair this on your own unless you are an experienced mechanic.  If you do be very cautious as the airbag wiring runs through there and can be a very dangerous mistake.

there is a pink wire that is an all time power wire and it has lost power I just had the same problem so what I did it I took the stereo out of the dash "mine is aftermarket" I then ran a wire form an orange wire under the steering wheel "which is hot with the key off" and then from that orange wire to the pink wire behind the stereo and everything started working again like it was supposed to.

SOURCE: 1999 GMC Suburban. no sound from radio

there is a plug at the back of the radio connecting it to the vehicle wiring loom. If you can get at thes plug, either from below or by removing the radio unit, make sure the plug is tight and secure. I can't think that the amp has gone or you would have lost all sound, so this is more than likely the problem.

2000 VW Jetta TDI my Horn just stopped! I don't know which relay to start by, The fuse is good but no V at horns Is there a wiring diagram to be had?


There is a "clockspring" wiring spiral in the steering wheel to accommodate the rotating steering wheel with controls on it. If this breaks, you may lose some or all functions controlled by stuff on the s-wheel.

As only the ignition key can lock the steering wheel and stop the motor at the same time I would suggest you replace the ignition lock. This is dangerous. Get it checked out.

Have you checked the fuse box? There should be a dedicated radio fuse.

Cheers,

2006 Volkswagen Jetta Ignition Lock Problem


I know this is a little late, but I just encountered the same problem with a 2005.5 jetta tdi. Went to put key in ignition and encountered a white plastic tumbler(?) blocking the keyhole. Car was parked, tires were straight and steering wheel was locked. Tried moving wheel up, down, left and right and also tried applying a small amount of oil thinking something was just stuck. Did what I could and finally called VW roadside assistance. Local dealer took a look this afternoon and notified me that the ignition switch is faulty and they have to order a new one from Germany which will take 2 weeks to arrive. Plus side, the part and labor will be covered under CPO warranty, but of course, the warranty doesn't cover a rental car for the two weeks this one will be out of commission.
