Dead Stereo

5

Asked by Sep 24, 2010 at 11:36 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My stereo was working fine. When my car was off and parked in my driveway I unplugged my mp3 from the cord connected to a tape in my stereo that playsback for mp3 players, and now my stereo is dead. I can't take it to a dealer, I don't have the money now. Is there places I should check that I could fix myself?

Right.... I don't know this for sure, but if you unplug the fuse or something for the radio, leave it unplugged for 30seconds, and reconnect it SHOULD work.
