    2001 A3 1.9TDI - Replacing concert with Kenwood - won't turn on please help!

    Hi Everyone

    I have been searching for ages but can't find the answer..

    I have bought a Kenwood KDC-W7044U and an Autoleads PCB404 connector.

    I connected everything up and the headunit made a wirring noise as if it was trying to play a cd but nothing turned on.

    I have connected the RCA's that came with the lead into the Kenwood and hear a popping sound but still the CD player won't power up.

    There are 5 wires from the Kenwood, blue/ white, orange, red, black and yellow.

    The red is connected to the red/ white on the a3 wiring and black to the brown on the audi but not sure where the others connect to.

    Could someone please help??

    :-)

    Matt

    You don't have a switched live on the 2000+ A3's so your HU will not power up. You either need to wire one in from the fusebox (Radio s-kont) or just pair the red & yellow wires from the Kenwood and connect them both to the perm live (red on Audi plug). You'll then need to turn the HU on/off manually.
