I got told that if this channel is unavailable the Instrument Cluster will communicate over CAN to find out what is installed in the car.

Hey , any chance you could help me out I just swapped from concert radio to an RSNE i bought the fakra god antenna and it all works but my factory AUX and Bluetooth don't work . I have a 2009 A3 8P. I picked up the 32 pin connector and I followed your thread but the 3 wires you re pin into the 32 connector is that just for aux ? How do I get my Bluetooth to work ? When I remove the RSNE unit there is the main harness then there is a small blue connector that doesn't connect to anything I'm assuming that is my Bluetooth ? My car came factory with it so I'm just trying to figure out if that blue connector is for my Bluetooth? [img]webkit-fake-url://d3a585ec-072f-45d6-883e-17a349567463/imagepng[/img]

It's not that hard to install, however, you will need some time if you are first timer.

The only couple issues I am having, the place of GPS antenna being inside of dash, getting weak signal (but working perfectly fine on the ground level, just not working well underground)

and, I need Vag-Com change in order to get my aux in working properly.

If you find a shop who can connect the GPS antenna to sharks fin, and vag-com fixes, I will go with you for sure.
Let me know.


Im in the same boat I swapped to RSNE in my A3 and maps and cluster work perfectly fine but Bluetooth and aux no go , I bought the 32 pin from Audi , I'm just trying to figure out how to get Bluetooth to work cause I have 1 blue harness not connected to anything and I'm thinking that's my Bluetooth ?the main harness all connector positions are full ... I'm located in Mississauga , if you ever find a fix let me know 👌🏻

Hey Pete, your post on installing the RNS to the A3 8P has been the best I've seen anywhere.
I have one question:
In the pic where you are explaining the 32 pin connect ( which I am doing presently for my aux under the armrest also ), I can see the fakra double pin connection in the background. Did you simply plug that into the double slot fakra on the Navigation Plus...and all was well??
