I'm having similar problems. The nav screen is blank just kind of flashes occasionally and the radio will work for only a few minutes and then just shuts off. It will not come back on again until the car is restarted. I've tried to disconnect the battery and checked the fuses. The battery seems to be fully charged but this all started after several dead battery days. I recently changed the blower motor resistor, "fsu,fsr". The screen stopped working before the resistor replacement.

Is the video driven by the nav computer located in the rear?

Any ideas guys?
If your radio turns off every 3 to 4 mins that means ur mk3 has gone south dont waste money to fix it just buy mk4 u will be happy

So the fuse box in the trunk says the On Board Monitor is fuses 7, 73, and 75. Pulled 73 - nothing. Pulled - 75 nothing. Went to glovebox and pulled 7 & reinserted it - problem solved! A little while later problem recurred! This time pulled 7 - nothing. Pulled 75 and replaced it with a new fuse - problem solved.

Let's see if it holds up.

Thanks again guys for the help, especially killcrap.

I had the same problem last month with my nav monitor, the problem was the nav computer in the trunk, got one from eBay and my monitor is working, if you have the mk3 will be a good time to upgrade to mk4.

Well no luck. Still happens more often then not. Sometimes it resets itself after just pulling fuse 75. Sometimes it takes pulling fuses 73 and 75.

Exactly what is happening and what to do now?

Hi I've had this problem twice so far both times caused by a flat battery and its total disconnection. My screen acted the same way and it remained off until I pulled the same fuses as well as the two blue relay blocks situated to the upper left of the fuse row. Note for the sat nav/display it does actually mention three fuses 7, 73 & 75 however 7 remained connected

A new nav computer fixed the problem.

Bumping a **really** old thread here, but just to add my 2 cents of the symptoms of a blown #75 fuse -

On key position 1 the radio *sound* comes on and can be controlled with the steering wheel buttons (volume, search), but the board monitor shows NO power light, no display on the screen, and the sound cuts out after approx. 20 seconds.

I just replaced that fuse and from zero display or sound we're back to full service!
