    Hi there. My name is Ian and I am a newbie...so sorry if this is in the wrong place!

    I just bought an A4 1.8T Sport Auto which has the standard concert radio/cassette but no power, also the autochanger in the boot does not spit out the cartridge when you push the button.

    I looked at the fuses to the right of the steering wheel and checked everyone to see if any had blown, but none had.

    The previous owner said that it just stopped working one day and that it had been working fine which makes me think that the problem is a fuse.

    Am I looking in the right area for the fuse?

    Thanks
    Ian:confused:

    If the unit has no power at all there is a fuse on the back of the unit they may have blown
    Pop the radio out and have a look you will need special keys to do this which can be bought off E-bay

    or split a set of feeler gauges and use the thickest blades instead of the OEM keys

    NO dont do that, it will break the springs on the radio and future removal will not be possible,

    please do not advise people to do that anymore!!!!!!
