Check your connection.
Started about a week ago with slight static coming from what sounded like my a pillar tweeter. Yesterday the speakers started cutting out on a spuratic basis. Usually when I come to a stop the speakers would cut out. When I take off, theybstart working. When I shift they cut out and then start working again. Any ideas? Anybody? Anybody? HELP!!! I don' t want to take it in for this if I don't have to.
I haven't done anything but I found amp wires and under the front seat they had wire taps for a LOC. Gonna bring it in for warranty if I can't figure it out. I don't have the cash to invest in a new aftermarket system right noow but someday. For now I just want the stock system to work like it's supposed to. I'd rather make it faster first. Music is less important than speed.
Hmm. I never had this issue besides when the CD player STOPPED WORKING completely lol. Out of nowhere too. I never messed the the stereo at all honestly or anything connected to it. Tony VW swapped out the old for a new in about 30 mins for me one day so issue is all fixed.
Good Luck with the fix buddy. My fault might be a diff area but it seems like I may want to upgrade the sounds in a bit

I read on another forum where a guy had issues with the steering wheel control connection. In his case there was physical damage to the connection which resulted in the car going into limp mode or something. I'd definitely get it checked out soon.

the codes you sent me seem to point to the steering wheel controls or control module. if it is interrupting the canbus system it will shut down communication to the parts it is trying to talk to. hence the radio.
did you check your fuses and relays already?

Do you know where I should look for this relay? I found a fuse box under the hood and one at the end of dash drivers side. The manual shows another fuse/relay box with a buttload of fuses and it shows the location of the radio fuses but didn't even think to check relays. To be honest, it's acting like it does have a $h!tty relay.
Some stuff that I recall from the other thread. I would link, but that forum is down now .
There is supposed to be a 'spring switch' in the steering column that is not actually a "spring".
It's job is to send signals from your steering wheel controls through your steering column without twisting all the wiring up when you are turning the wheel.
Apparently, this 'spring' can get pinched and bind up causing it to either work intermittently or, worse case, break and not work at all.
The VW tech in that thread seemed to recognize the issue right away.
Maybe a trip to Honolulu VW or Tony?

The thread is here:
If the site is not up, here is the gist of the thread:
So I'm making a right out of a gas station this morning and as the steering wheel is going back to center I hear a crunching sound followed by a ding and the air bag light appearing on the dash. Next thing I noticed was that my whole steering wheel was dead, horn, MF controls etc... lol the car doesn't even have 6000km on it
Clock spring died...It's not really a spring, basically all the electronics in the wheel, horn, buttons, lights in the buttons, airbag, ect all have wiring. Since you turn the steering wheel back and forth constantly there has to be something to not break the wiring. So it all plugs into a clock spring. Inside the clock spring the wiring is turned into what looks like tape, inch wide, flat, white, with electrical strips in it. The tape is coiled up like a roll of tape except very loose. One end is connected to the steering column, the other to the wheel, when you turn back and forth it could up tighter or it uncoils. If you heard a crunch it was most likely the tape looking wiring getting caught and broken, hence the reason the whole wheel is dead now.
Hope this helps out!
****e! VWoA wont even direct them to the steering column to the ribbon cable (clock spring) or what ever you want to call it. They are wanting the tech to bypass a group of wires in the harness and see if thats where the problem is. Myself, I fingered it was pretty cut and dry because when I was driving along and gave the steering wheel a good whack it would cut out the speakers then they would work again until I hit a bump or whacked the wheel again. They've had 2.5 days so far. It's time for them to ****e or get off the pot. I want my ride back. I'm really trying to be patient and have been treated exceptionally well so far. Zach and Cameron have done a fine job at keeping me up to date. Wish me luck for a tomorrow solution.
