Which fuses control the radio and 12 power outlets in a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta Value Edition

because the battery died the antitheft code for the radio activated . You will have to r-enter the code for the radio to work. If thee is no power to the radio check the fuses for the ignition as the power will come from the accessories side of the switch. Reset the CPU program in the ECM by using a fault scanner.

Car died in parking lot, replace battery, still no start...when I turn key, car wont start and the power on radio(the clock) also losing power somehow....

It's possible that the starter is bad but don't think it would cause the car to die or just stop running. You say in a parking lot, did you shut it off and then tried starting it? and no start? if so check the starter !!!

My car battery died.when i put in a new my cd player stop working

If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.

I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.

Radio Dead

When it comes to independent auto shops, its tough to get them to take responsibility if they did something wrong, thats why most people with a car as nice as your wouldnt trust it to just any shop. Theres nothing in a timing belt job that would cause the radio to stop working, unless some connector is loose or a bad ground somewhere. There are 3 fuses you may want to check... Radio No. 1 20A, Radio No 2 7.5A, Dome 7.5A. These all send power to the radio's circuit. If all 3 are good, It would have to be an internal problem in the radio.

If it's any consolation, I don't think the problem is anything that you might have done. Probably the radio just decided that today was a good day to die and you just happen to be there at the time. The only thing I can think of just off the cuff is to remove the radio fuse (both of them) for about 5 minutes to reset the radio back to factory. Might help. The only snag in that is the possiblility that there is a security code that you would have to enter to get the radio to work after removing all power. You might talk to the dealer about the security code before you actually try this. Make sure that he can get you up and running again with a factory code after the fact. Sorry to hear about your problem. Seems cars have a way of knowing when their owners are not driving them and they save all their glitches for just that time. I had borrowed my wife's father's van one time when it decided the time was right for the transmission to go out. (lucky me, huh?) Good luck.
