Can I tap CD changer outlet for switched radio power supply?
I'm looking for a power supply that's live when the radio is on, to drive my bluetooth phone kit on my A3 TDi with just the standard Concert 2 head unit.
There's no switched Electric Aerial power output from the back of the Concert 2 radio any more on our new A3s, as the Canbus interface puts paid to that.
At the moment I'm just taking an ignition feed from the fuse box, but I really need a feed that's live when the radio is on whether the ignition is on or not.
I understand that there's a CD-Changer socket behind the glove-box, because I've read that someone used it to create an i-Pod interface.
Before I pull the glove-box to bits to get at it, does anyone know if that (unused) CD-Changer socket would contain a radio-switched power feed I could utilise or is that canbus driven as well?
And even if you don't know if there's a power feed to it or not, does anyone know the easiest way to remove the glovebox for me to get at the cd-changer socket to find out for myself?
