Radio will not turn off when I turn key off - Jetta Volkswagen Cars & Trucks

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Normal operation of the Jetta Radio, is that it will stay on, when the key is turned off, however it will turn off when the key is removed from the ignition. Mine functions the same way. I guess it is so that you can change from The Engine Running to the ACC position without your CD stopping, or your Radio turning off. IF yours is behaving differently than this, let me know, otherwise I would say that your Radio is working properly.

I have a 2002 trailblazer ltz, I go to start the truck and it just clicks under the hood, no noise or anything. The lights on the console comes on and the radio says that's it's on but it only plays static. Also everything seems to be reset in the car like the car was saying "Driver 1" even though I had the driver 2 key and remote and also the time on the radio was reset to 12:00. Also as I'm turning the key the radio screen says "Need AMP". what do you think this could be?

I have a 2004 Jetta 1.8T that occasionally shuts off and turns right back on. It usually happens when I am slowing down quickly, but it has happened a few times on the highway. Once, I had to turn the key while going 60 mph to get it started again! I took it to a Volkswagen dealership in Seattle, and they said nothing was wrong with the car. I took it to one in Boise, and they said my "battery had a short in it" , so they replaced the battery. For about 4 months, everything was fine, but th
