Question about 1997 Audi A8

1 Answer

Both the GPS and the radio went dead at the same time. Both units are placed in the booth. I have checked the circute brakers with no luck. Is there any CB on the units themself. My car is an Audi S8 -97 vintage.

CB units, i would not know. But it sound to me like you got a blown fuse. A fuse like that could be either in the fuse box, or the relay box under the hood. So check and make sure all your fuses are in good working condition.

After car battery went dead and it was given a jump the radio display went out and it will not turn back on. How do I get it to turn on do I need to reset the radio if so how?

check the radio fuse first ,, if its an aftermarket radio, check the wiring behind the unit, they usually add an inline fuse to the set up and installation

Lef lights on and battery went dead radio won't turn on now

Same thing happens to my wifes Tucson. If you put in a CD it turns the radio on. We have had to do this a couple times now and it works every time. Of course if there is a CD in there it won't a result we make sure to always eject the CD before turning the car off. There was a recall with the brake control switch as well the radiop in the 06' are a known lemon however the unit has a reduced warranty which does not match the bumper to bumper warranty. Also the air bag sensor is a recall (I believe). The daytime headlights will stay on sometimes too for some reason which is what drains our battery, Good luck!

I have a 1995 honda accord and the car battery went dead and now my car radio says "code" and it will not do anything! What do I need to do I do not have to manual

Try looking online for the radio's manual. Make sure you put in the model number to optimize your chances of locating the manual for the radio. (*If an add-in unit*).
For a stock unit, you can try looking online. One site that popped out is It looks free, just need to register for the sight(*like many forum type places, and have a pdf reader.*).
Good luck to you.
