Hey, I'm new to audizine, just got my first audi, 1998 A4 B5 with 108Kmi.

Any way, the other day the radio just shut off while driving. It won't come back on or show any indication of life, no lights, sounds, nothing at all.

I did some research, found that the security system can kick in if the batt. dies but i dont think thats the issue. I heard a rumor that theres a 10A fuse behind the head unit, is this true? And do i have to have the audi radio puller to get it out?

Anything helps! Thanks!

you need four keys to pull it out, there is a fuse, if it is dead, ECS sells them for cheap(No code)

It depends on what radio he has. He has a 98, he needs two keys.




You can get them at wal-mart.
