    Post RNS-D to RNS-E upgrade, old stuff I know but help needed in Technophobe speak please

    Hi, I have a 2002 A4 3.0 Cabriolet, with the RNS-D sat nav fitted. It has no Bose or Phone or TV. Because the system is pretty crap I bought a RNS-E system on eBay, part number 8E0 035 192 T

    I have the Plug & Play lead, and the aerial adapter, so I plugged it all in, and found the following problems:

    No illumination on the buttons - it would appear that the wire (grey and black I think) in the car that has 12 volts when the lights are turned on has no corresponding wire on the PNP socket?

    No display on the dash for CD/Radio Station/Navigation information - the 26 pin plug in the car that sends all this info to the dash does not match the 32pin socket on the RNS-E system which says 32 pin AMP connector on the RNS-E label?

    Apart from that it all works fine - the glove box CD is all okay and the Navigation system seems okay too.

    So guys, what do I need to do to rectify those few problems please...

    Many thanks

    Your car / the RNS-d uses a bosch can system you need to find a convertor box which lets the Audi can system talk to the Bosch system and modify the wiring. I had to do this on my A4Q Avant when i retro fitted my RNS-E. If you do a search over at http://audiforum.us/ or post the question someone will help you. My convertor box was in the boot behind a panel i had to modify the aerial wiring too.
    EDIT
    here's the link to the same problem as you. http://audiforum.us/rns-e/11777-rns-d-rns-e.html
