    Is it switching off (does the radio/CD player or whatever you're listening to) switch off, or does the screen just go dark?

    Hi,
    Had a similar issue with mine. Was the ignition switch. The s-contact in the switch was faulting causing the car to think the key was being withdrawn from the igntion barrel, hence switching the radio on and off.

    I had a new ignition switch fitted, an independant VAG garage will be able to fit you one. Its behind the steering column cowling.
