    Rnse fitted but no radio signal

    As above. I have an a3 1.9tdie sport 09 with audi bluetooth and mfsw. I have fitted rnse mark 2 with a prefix ending in G. I realised it would need coding so I took the plunge and got vcds. I coded as best as I could working out what equipment I have and applying to the soft coding. Sat nav works and so does the phone capability but I can't get a radio signal or use my aux input by the handbrake. Is this coding or something I physically need to fit?
    I have researched and researched and conversion adapters for antenna's crop up but this seams for cars that had symphony heads, mine was a concert.
    I did PM a couple of experts on here about fitting originally but stupidly thought I could get vcds and be self efficient lol
    Any way help please, now it's in I want it fully functioning and not having a radio or aux input from my iPhone is not what I wanted.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Pretty sure it is a common problem.

    With Rnse you need to change the receiver located in the boot to get a decent signal.

    Nigel is your man, sure he will be along shortly..

    I could of had it all done and fitted with a new one for not much more!

    Sorry to here that. No it's not your unit. My wife's car was broken into 2 weeks ago and it's really upsetting. Hope they never damaged the the car too much. The thieving *******s would make more money learning how to fit them than steal them.

    I'll have to get to audi and order the parts unless anyone on here has a cheaper option. It's funny that this is my first so called premium make car and I've never had to mess about as much to get things fixed/ modded.

    Thanks again.

    You could try eBay or eBay.de for secondhand amplifiers.

    Rnse fitted but no radio signal

    I'm actually thinking of sacking the fm fix off and fitting a DAB tuner and antenna from advanced in car. The YouTube clip with it working through Rnse and the mfsw seems pretty cool. It's even cheaper to do than the fm fix. Anyone actually fitted DAB yet?

    That's a decent price for DAB, I wonder how it would cost to fit and would it work on a Concert...

    Right here

    AutoDAB CTDAB-AU1 Audi A3, A4, TT OEM Digital Car Radio DAB Adaptor

    Beats paying £300 to rectify a shoddy analogue signal which is old hat anyway, deffo going down this route when I get my RNSE along with an aftermarket Fiscon Bluetooth integration kit rather than use the original Audi adapter

    No problem thanks for making me aware this was out there, only thing I'm not keen on is the Antenna on the windscreen in the video, much better value for money though
