Any ideas on why radio stopped working and if this is a precursor of upcoming electrical issues?

Asked by Jul 16, 2015 at 09:05 PM about the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A couple weeks ago my radio simply stopped working.  Blank screen.  I checked
fuses under hood and all are okay.  There were no issues with radio prior to this and no
indication this was about to happen.  Besides this one issue, it's been a great car.  I
was busy and didn't get around to checking the fuse but, last night I finally got around
to checking the fuse, which I just assumed I'd be replacing.  Well . . . now it's  a
bummer being without a radio.  Based on some old posts, it sounds like this might be
a "known issue".

This is a known issue Try a radio reboot, Press and hold your radio power on button for about a minute, if this does not work you can try locating the ground and make sure its ok.
