In what way do you mean reset? Are you trying to clear codes, or adapt the throttle body, or trying to clear out an electrical problem?

I tried to activate satellite radio through sirius. Channels updated...can see the name of the station, song name, artist name etc...but only static - no music! Sirius after many calls says that I need to have a hard wire reset done??? I unhooked the battery for about 5 mins but everything was still saved in the radio and it did not change anything. Do you know what Sirius is talking about?
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 6 years ago.
You will probably have to replace the Sirius base unit if that is the only audio having issues. It's a common problem

So what is the warranty? Is this a volkswagen issue? it is the upgraded sound system that came in the vehicle....
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 6 years ago.
it is covered by the 4 year, 50k overall warranty. If you're not sure you can give me your VIN and I can look up your purchase date.
