    Anyone done a Cruise and DIS Retrofit?

    Hi All!
    Just got all my parts to do the DIS and Cruise Retro fit!!! Excited! and worried at the same time!

    Just wanted to know if anyone else on here had done it themselves that i could pester / PM for advice if anything goes up the wall with mine...

    If not that.... just any advice before i start.

    Cheers!
    Chris

    not done it myself... I've got some good cotacts who will come to your house and tidy it all up for you if it goes horribly pear-shaped.... but that said, maybe not best to try until 4th Jan so the clean-up crew will be able to get to you

    I did just the DIS install, took a couple of hours and all went smoothly enough. I think adding the cruise is just a matter of fitting the stalk and SWCM and doing a bit more coding. The scariest bit it removing the plug from the airbag...

    here is my write up on it..

    thanks!
    In your thread you mention this URL:
    http://sites.google.com/site/ade2ade/a4-cruise-coding

    Now, i cant seem to get that to work in any browser.. the page loads fine but the drop down box's to work out codes etc etc just don't work.

    Is it the same for anyone else?

    Cheers

    yep, same for me.

    chris, get it fitted mate, we'll sort your coding out between us on here.
    i retro fitted my cruise, doddle mate, did you get the two tiny threaded screws with it?
    are you sure the rest of it is compatible, ie: module etc.

    nut, you do but its not essential, on the one youve got, if you remove it you will see a line where the cut out should be, a two minute job to cut it out yourself and save 25, really easy job mate.
    do you have a multi wheel, you may need a new module to add cruise.
    i upgraged mine when i changed my sterring wheel to a FBMFSW.

    Thanks, well i am half way through the fitting at the moment! Just done Pin 1 on the clocks and put it ready to do my bottle with tomorrow.

    Going to hopefully get it all coded up tonight all being well!

    Any idea what my login would be for the ABS?

    Audi A4 1.9 TDi Sport Avant?

    I will PM you my number..

    Thanks a lot!

    Cheers!

    It doest seem to have gone swimmingly well...

    All is fitted ok... and DIS is active...
    However it just does not seem to be coding correctly...

    --------------------

    Tried to code it 5 - 6 times now on the ABS side of things... all goes ok, and on the last step where it says faults should be cleared, they are..

    however warning still stay son dashboard and when i restart the car all the same fault codes for ABS come back.

    As for the engine fault codes... cruise control works fine, so i don't know what its problem is..

    I have driven for 4 mile to see if the faults disappear on their own and they don't

    HELP!! Ideas?

    Cheers!

    HaHa.. 805.0... is my cable genuine? Sore subject... In short i don think so.. Although it was sold to me as genuine and i paid a rather large sum of money for it..
    After about 5 use's it popped up once or twice with "unlicensed interface" which at first i thought was because it was on a mac. but i wanted to know for sure, now the guy i bought it from cant be found for love nor money.. So i think i have been done over on a none genuine lead..
    Do you think that could be my issue? as i don't really have any problems with it..

    Guess i need to spend another 200+ and get a lead from a reputable supplier?

    Cheers

    no worries - was just gonna ask how the switching between DIS and SatNav directions on the DIS screen was working for you... there can be some probs.

    well worth the upgrade - really sharpens up the whole interior and integrates in with the rest of the Audi kit very well!!

    yeh, i really want to upgrade mine.

    question though... how come some of them have a lip between the RNS-E and the Climate unit and then some of them done (flush fit)...
    Is this a bi-product of a retrofit?

    Cheers

    do you mean the climate is set back in further than the rns-e, i thought they all were, dont recall seeing any with the front faces all flush, i may be wrong, just havent noticed, my climates deffo set back from my rns-e, theres a chrome strip at the bottom of the rns-e that rounds under and stops level with the face of the climate, cant see how it could be flush.
    heres a pic of mine.

    pedals are about 70 inc postage, that dont include the deadman, about 110 with that.
    rns-e can be got for around 400 - 450, if you have single din stereo you need to change cage to double din about 50.
    fbmfsw, thats a different story, module and slipring requires changing, plus cost of wheel and airbag, that can get very expensive, wouldnt want to tell you what mine cost, youd be to jealous, lol bargain.
    obviously all the above require fitting, which arent hard to be honest, just depends how handy you class yourself.

    without doubt, the pedals are the worst to fit, there a ******* !!!
    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!

    I have to ask one thing... what the hell is "the deadman".... loll

    I have just changed my SCCM to one of a B7 that supports MFSW, so that shouldn't be an issue.. However its the whole dual and single stage airbag thing that worries me..

    I seen a wheel go on eBay, christmas eve for 46 including bag... Exactly what i wanted too. Just this stuff about the newer wheels not working with the older cars air bags etc etc put me off, so i left it!
