Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf

Volkswagon radio 2005 golf (2)

Earlier I posted a question about a 2005 Golf radio and was answered to replace fuse or even replace the internal radio fuse if one exists. I ventured into the fuse box and did not see any symbol that looks like a radio or audio. Could you tell me which is for the radio? Also there are fuses on top of the battery as well, they look good but considering the car was sitting for 9 months could this be the problem as well? Also I saw in another post that a code might have to be entered for a radio that sat for some time, the battery was completely corroded before I cleaned it. What do you think?

    I did disconnect the battery but there is not safe mode or any reading on the digital part of the radio. I also looked at the fuse box and diagram and can not figure out what looks like a audio symbol. My owners manual only shows warning symbols and not anything relating to the fuse box. I have been through the manual several time looking for some sort of refeerence or symbol relationship and had not had sucess. Their are key, motor, wipers etc symbols but not a radio symbol??????

Not likely as a result of sitting too long, but there is a possibility that your radio went into theft mode when you cleaned the battery if you disconnected either of the terminals. The fuse for the radio is inside your car, likely in the fuse block on the end of the dash when you open your door. There should be a fuse block schematic either on the door removed to gain access to the fuse block, or in your Owner's Manual.

If it's a radio code issue you may need to consult with your VW Dealer. The radio, however, should power on and then provide you with some indication that the radio has gone into safe mode.

1995 volkswagon golf over heating. Replaced upper and lower radiator hose. Engine cooling fan doesnt kick on. What else should I look for.


I would check the radiator fan switch, it's mounted in the radiator on the driver side of the radiator, you should be able to see it from the engine compartment. Also check the fan relay and fan fuse.

I need the code off my volkswagon golf radio as car only bought and dont no code


Sadly:
There is only 2 options.

1. Your radio code is in your paperwork for your car (Its on a hard plastic card) Find it.

2. Take your registration to Vin and Ser Number for your radio to your local dealer.

These codes are a guarded secret and no one code fits all.


Hope this tip helps guide you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

Where are the fuses for the speakers - VW Golf 1994


there will not be any fuses for the speakers themselves, you may have fried the internal components which drive the speakers. if the two fuses you mentioned are okay, you most likely will need a new stereo. does the radio even turn on at all?
