Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf
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?
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.
