Finally found a nice oem looking head unit to fit in the car (pics to follow), and stuck it in the car last weekend.
Popped down to halfords and grabbed the harness adapter just to be safe, as i knew someone mentioned something about the audi unit having the switched and constant power round the wrong way.... or something like that.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
once it was all installed, i noticed that the stereo didn`t turn off when the key was removed from the ignition. Must be something to do with the halfords harness.... (all it does on having a look at it is to run an aditional constant feed into the switched feed). Now if the head unit completely powered off i could live with this, but it doesn`t [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
so i remove the harness and stick the loom directly into the back of my unit (kinda like doing this as my head unit supports the gala feature, yet no after market harness adapters that i have found have this wire included), and then recharged my flattend battery!!! wont be using the halfords adapter again in a hurry!!
now that i have the audi loom directly into the head unit, it doesn`t have retain any of the settings on removing the key from the ignition. I have to put the keycode into the unit every time i get in the car.
does anyone have a version of the pin out diagram in english i could have a look at at all, as when looking on the back of the audi unit i take out, the diagram has 3 or 4 different pins all with some kinda positive sign on them.... i`m a touch confused!!!
any help would be great
