    Bluetooth Retrofit issues

    Hi Chaps,

    New here with an 06 2.0tfsi s-line SE avant. Lovely car so far, decided it needs a few extras.

    As its the mrs car I wanted bluetooth, so i bought a kit from ebay and have wired it in today. I only have the concert radio, so i used a few mini blade connectors to connect onto the Tel plug pins.

    I used the 12v and earth and k-line from the power plug to the radio (was permanent 12v a mistake?) which i tapped into with heatshrink terminals.

    Then with mini spade terminals joined the NF wires and phone mute onto the tel socket.

    With VCDS I changed coding in the radio, MFSW, instrument and Tel. I changed the tel to comms over k-line rather than CAN, i have left the CAN wires disconnected as I didnt think they were needed on my early A4?

    Now I have a few issues. The Tel module 77 wouldnt communicate on VCDS for ages, eventually it did when i added the CAN lines, as it was a used module i changed it to K and it seemed to work. I could connect my phone to it and it did work, but the MFSW mode button doesnt do anything, I cant answer calls on the wheel or look through contacts etc. In tel I have a DTC for no comms from SCCM, which I guess is the MFSW in VCDS?

    Anyway, coding seems to be correct, I changed some numbers to allow for phone and voice control in all units, but still no buttons working. Now I can't get my phone to connect to the bluetooth, just scans and nothing.

    Have I done something silly and missing the obvious? I'm a Merc commercial tech so fairly technically savvy just not too clued up on the VCDS systems.

    Any help massively appreciated!

    Cheers, Mark.

    Mostly likely the BT module was coded for an A3 so you would need the Can-bus wires so it could be coded via k-line. Also the BT module communicates on the infotainment can-bus so without the can-bus wires the BT module cannot communicate to the NAV, SCCM and the instrument cluster.

    What have you set the codding on the BT module to? it should be 0011722.

    The steering wheel should also be codded check out the ross-tech wiki Audi A4 (8E) Steering Wheel - Ross-Tech Wiki

    And you should also code the instrument cluster.

    Thanks for the help chaps,

    So you think it will need the CAN lines to comm with the wheel buttons? Makes sense now you say it. I thought as it was an older model it wouldn't need the CAN lines.

    Yes I have coded the INS, MFSW, Radio and Tel module according to the ross tech wiki page.

    Should it be ignition live or permanent to the Tel unit? It is a genuine audi unit, revision N or H I cant rememeber now, yes I changed it to K line comms in the coding, im sure i read it will only show up to pair in the first 30 secs or so, which indicates it would like an ignition live, wasn't sure how clever these were with wake up on CAN etc..

    Thanks for your input chaps, I really want to get this sorted!

    Cheers, Mark.

    It definitely needs the Infotainment CAN wires permanently connected to work.

    Permanent, from the same feed as the Radio.

    Also make sure you clear any fault codes, as some fault codes on the BT module are blocking - i.e. stop it working.

    Well thanks chaps,

    I fixed it today, connected the CAN wires and all working as it should. I read that the older ones used K line to communicate so assumed it wouldnt need CAN. The bluetooth is also wake up on CAN so wont need an ignition feed. Thanks for your help, hopefully anyone else in this situation will be able to read this.

    Thanks, Mark.
