#86 of 172 VW Jetta 2003 Monsoon Radio Frozen
Jan 19, 2008 (10:42 am)
I bought a used 2003 Jetta for my daughter with only 12,000 miles on it. The Monsoon radio suddenly stopped working. The display shows FM 88.1 (the radio staion) but there is no sound and the radio is frozen, meaning none of the channel, AM, FM bass, treble etc buttons work. If you raise the sound, you see the bar increasing the sound, but again nothing comes out. If you put in a cd, the display shows the cd is playing, but the cd control buttons are completely ineffective. I disconnected the battery to try to put the radio in Safe mode and then reset it, but apparenly the disconnect power anti-theft only works if the radio is put into another car. Any suggestios would be greatly appreciated. The warrenty is expired and if there is no fix for this I'll just buy an after-market radio and have it installed. Thanks.

Did you ever find out what was causing your problem? I have the exact same year Jetta with the exact same Monsoon radio and the EXACT same symptoms.

I also have XM radio and I have the same problem. The dealer has no solutions, and so far I have found nothing online.
Some people indicate this is a problem with the xm signal, which is incorrect. If there is no signal, the radio says NO SIGNAL. NO SAT RADIO means the radio does not recognize that you have a satellite module installed (according to the dealer).
Hopefully someone will figure this out!
