  • the car battery is not fully charged
  • Dashboard wires are plugged in properly or not

I found some problems with the VW Jetta radio because the wires at the bottom of the dashboard weren’t plugged in properly, and because of that, the radio won’t turn on.

Top 5 Reasons Why Car Radio is Not Working and How to Repair

1. External Car Radio Antenna Problem

Sometimes you think everything is fine but why isn’t the radio working? External car radio antenna problems may be the main reason behind it. For some reason, it can become loose. So it would be best if you fixed it according to the instructions given in the user manual using special tools

I heard from a friend about this incident; VW Passat radio was not working due to a radio amperage problem, required 10 amps according to the user manual, but accidentally repairer used 15 amp fuse while repairing it comes in the same size, and so creates radio problem.

3. Anti-Theft Feature Problem

Now there is a car radio in the market which has anti-theft feature already from the manufacturer. But even if your car’s battery is down, the radio in your vehicle enables anti-theft functionality, and so your radio doesn’t work, and the “code” keeps flashing on the screen.
