    AMI Retrofit

    HI Folks

    Just had an AMI i pod retroft done at an independant garage,

    Probems with the aux socket now not working and the i pod will not play (unit i bought had no instructions as I thought it was only plug and play)

    The i pod just will not allow me to play anything, the CD player and radio still works but not the aux socket or i pod.

    It comes up with componenet connected.

    Is there a software update required for this or anything else I need to know that we have to do to get this to work

    Cheers Hopefully yours

    Brian (

    It would be helpful if we knew which system this was fitted to.

    MMI 2G/3G/Concert/Symphony etc???

    AMI Retrofit

    When you connect the iPod does it light up and charge?

    If you press MEDIA on your HU and select source from one of the inner keys what does it bring up?

    the i pod lights up and looks like its charges ok. On the i pod it comes up "accessory connected"

    When I press media on the HU it shows the Aux lit up but it does not play the i pod when connected to the 3.5mm jack. The SD card outlet and the CD are not lit up but the CD does play, I havent tried the SD card

    Cheers

    AMI Retrofit

    only said about the 3.5mm jack as it now does not work, since the guy fitted the AMI it has for some reason stopped any i pod/i phone playing through that jack

    AMI Retrofit

    If Ami Etc coded correctly then iPod should definitely just appear under media and just work . Perhaps although AMI physically installed and powered - car needs coding to say Ami present?

    I know what I'm talking about fitting AMI in A3 but I'm sure B8 A4 still needs some coding...

    I have AMI in a similar set up to you.....just to add, I don't think you can have the 3.5 Aux as well as the AMI, it's either or, when getting AMI fitted it will disable the 3.5 Aux socket.

    This is what I was told when fitting anyway, my car was an early B8 so didn't have the socket anyway.
