VW jetta stock radio won't turn on

230

Asked by Jun 04, 2014 at 02:40 PM about the 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After a dead battery and JumpStart when I
left my lights on my radio has no life. It
doesn't come on at all or ask for the code in
"safe" mode. Fuses are good and battery is
good. I have unhooked both to reset but no
radio life. It appears the JumpStart killed
the radio. Is that possible? Is there a fuse in
the back of the radio that could have blown
on the jumpstart?

Well the answer is yes for anyone else having this issue. The small red fuse on the back of the radio was blown by the jump. Replaced and now the radio works fine.
