Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi my daughter's radio went out on her 2011 vw jetta last week. The radio will not come on and the screen is black. Her phone will still connect with the bluetooth. We have tried the hard restart with no luck.  We have looked at the fuses but we are unsure of which fuses to check.  Can anyone give us any advise?

There is a fuse in the back of the radio. The plastic cover pops off, 4 bolts and the radio will come out...I haven’t gone further with finding the fuse yet...I have this issue too... original battery in mine! About a month ago the radio randomly quit. Yesterday it wouldn’t turn over... lost all power. Put a charger on it, it started! I’m hoping it starts today to bring to VW he did say the bad battery could make the radio quit but he isn’t sure till he looks into it...

The fuse on the back of the radio when you pull the module out is underneath the main wire harness. I am having the same issue with my stereo system in my 2011 VW Jetta SE. I replaced the fuse but still not working. The battle is finding a fuse diagram for either the under the hood or under the dash fuse boxes. Im fairly frustrated at this point. Would love to hear if anyone resolved the issue without buying a replacement system. Good luck!
