HI: NEW HERE - ADVICE ON VW TOUAREG STUCK IN PHONE MODE

HI. I tried to post last night on this, so I'm not sure why it either didn't post or wasn't accepted, but I'm trying again.


I have a 2010 Touareg approx. 73000 miles. I had the right low beam warning come on and took it to have new one installed. I leave lights on AUTO but someone switched it to high and I think it drained battery because I parked car for night and when I went to drive it yesterday I had a dead battery. I put key in ignition and it stuck. Someone came to jump start my car and it did so with no issues. When the cables were attached the alarm started going off and went off as soon as the car started. Everything is fine now except for the radio is stuck in PHONE mode. I disconnected or deleted the phones attached to the bluetooth and still nothing, or still stuck.


Can anyone give me advice on what to do?



Thanks!
Rinn

Try a "3-finger salute" reboot. Press and hold the top left two arrow keys and the top right day/night button until the display turns off, then release.

OP has a T2, not a T3. Thus an RNS 510. My button combo above is correct for that system.

when in doubt with electronics- once you feel confident in the battery charge, disconnect the negative terminal and leave it disconnected for 10-15 minutes. This should reset the system.

Better to remove the proper fuse. The battery is under the driver seat and requires a bit of work to get to, also a special triple square bit that most won't own.

pic of my dashboard

I can't figure out how to add a pic of my dashboard, but attached a pic here:

My dashboard is the top left pic noted as 'Based Radio'.



Which buttons should I push?

Or is the fuse replacement something a girl who knows nothing about cars could do?
