I have an 08 VW rabbit and I believe the stereo fuse was blown. I pulled it out to replace with after market radio but because I was missing a cable, I had to put it stock radio back in.. But it didn't work! While doing all this, a spark blew up because yellow and black cables touched. Hope this can be a good description! Thanks.

When the spark occured you might have blown another fuse. My advise would be to check all the fuses before trying anything else.

How do you check fuse in the back of the radio?


1.Turn off the vehicle. Locate the main fuse box.
2.Locate a fuse box that isn't under the dashboard by checking under the hood of the car.
3.Look at the diagram on the inside of the fuse box's cover.
4.Determine if the fuse is blown by looking through the clear plastic casing.
5.Take the blown fuse to an electronics store or a car-parts store.Push the new fuse into the empty slot in the fuse box, making sure that it is in the same direction as the other fuses. It should slide in with a tight fit.Replace the fuse-box cover.
6.Complete the above steps before removing the car radio.Disconnect the car battery under the hood by disconnecting the cable from the negative terminal (the black cable) of the battery. Remove the dash area around the car radio.Unscrew the four screws on each corner of the car stereo.Locate the fuse on the back of the car radio.

7.Take the blown fuse to a car-parts store or electronics store to find a replacement fuse. Place the new fuse into the car radio.lide the car radio back into the dash opening. Replace the corner screws followed by the dash trim panels. Put any screws and clips back into place.Reconnect the car battery. Turn the car on, and if the blown fuse was the problem, the radio should work.

2002 VW Passat GLX AWD, stereo stopped working


HI,
Passats can be reset if the radio is pulled out and the fuse on the back is removed. Wait for 2 mins, reinsert the fuse and turn the radio on. If this doesn't work, please take it to the dealer for the unlocking of the code, for which he may charge you some fee.

Do let me know if it was helpful.

Regards
Kanu

After market stereo will not turn on after alternator repair.


to look at the worn out fuse they look like being burned or the aluminum inside the fuse is broken or cut.the fuse for the radio is different to the fuse of the car but still is connected to the battery and check the fuse of the radio it self may be worn out already.
