I have the standard Audi Concert CD player but want to remove it and put in my AVIC F900bt. I already understand I need to purchase the double-DIN cage and facia surround, and I already have acquired a standard autoleads Audi-ISO cable that I'm hoping will apply. Anyone got a fitting procedure? Is there something you can do to ensure the Pioneer displays information on the driver's instrument panel like the factory unit already does (track number / radio station name etc.)?
berrymedic20 posted a topic in GeneralCar: '03 Audi A4 with Bose, steering wheel controls. Radio: Pioneer AVH-P4200DVD. I decided to add on the steering wheel controls, so purchased the PAC SWI-PS and SWI-CAN modules that are recommended for this purpose. I installed the modules, wired everything up properly, and eventually got it programmed. I had a HELL of a time getting it programmed properly. It would sporadically recognize the steering wheel inputs during program, sometimes registering them, sometimes not. Eventually got it programmed, and it seemed to work fine (albeit with the engine running only). Now, I'm noticing that the steering wheel controls are non-functional for the first 5 - 10 minutes that I'm using the car. Absolutely no response. Then, suddenly, they'll start working again, and continue to work until the car is shut down and restarted, then same thing happens. So obviously everything's wired properly, because the controls work totally fine after they start working at all. In fact, if they worked like that all the time, I would sing the praises of this gizmo, as it's really quite nice having the SWI back. But not being able to use the steering wheel control for 5 - 10 minutes practically negates the purpose of the unit, since sometimes I'm not even in the car that long, and even if I am, it's anyone's guess as to when they'll start magically working again. Any thoughts on this? Any similar experiences? I've contacted the company once by phone, and spoke to a gentleman who was, frankly, a complete a$$hole, and refused to acknowledge that anything could be wrong with the unit. I may try and re-wire and re-program everything again, but this is time consuming and annoying!
This weekend I will mostly be... moving my AVIC into my new car I've just bought an "Audi A3, A4, TT Steering Wheel Stalk Control Interface Adaptor Lead" and just wanted to check what level of functionality I should have with it? I've connected the Fakra block, interface block and my existing Pioneer patch lead, but haven't connected in any of the loose bullet connectors - what are they for? As background, the car has a multi function steering wheel and built-in bluetooth. I've removed the factory fitted Concert III head unit and replaced it with the F700BT. I want to use the Audi Bluetooth and phone integration, with the pioneer only handling music and navigation. I've turned off bluetooth on the Pioneer. Head unit audio - OK MFSW vol up/down - OK MFSW track selection - OK phone synchs to built-in Audi bluetooth - OK select phone book entry using MFSW and dial - OK Mode/source button on MFSW alternates between head unit & phone book, but doesn't select between different sources (e.g. CD, FM...) - should this be possible? Phone / bluetooth audio isn't being diverted to the speakers - I guess this is being routed via the Pioneer head unit - does this require different cabling? I didn't test whether the built-in mic works with the Audi Bluetooth, because I didn't have any audio output - should this work, or will I need a separate mic connected to the Pioneer? Will the built-in voice dialing still work once I get bluetooth/phone audio & mic sorted? I'm assuming that the Audi Bluetooth is a fully stand-alone setup that doesn't depend on the Concert head unit - is that right? Sorry for so many questions - I suspect the answers will all be related. TIA
