    Replacing the BCM (09 - Central Control Module)

    just stayed lit :( read quite a few things online now relating to aftermarket HIDs leading to premature failure with this outcome but mine are factory fitted so I guess it’s just been funny timing! Ordered a module so hopefully it works!

    Replacing the BCM (09 - Central Control Module)

    Tried it and it comes back as completed OK, no faults shown. No faults on BCM and I had the BCM removed for about 10 mins but still no better. https://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/365178-front-drivers-indicator-bulb-permanently-on-hids-fitted-ccm/ found this which sounds the same only I don’t...

    Replacing the BCM (09 - Central Control Module)

    I’ve checked the wiring on both sides. The indicator wire is permanently live so I’m 100% it’s not the headlight it’s self. It’s coming from the car side. pin 9 (black/green) is indicator wire on the drivers side and pin 9 (black/white) is indicator on the passenger side. It’s permanently 12V...

    Replacing the BCM (09 - Central Control Module)

    The light is on static no matter if the car is on or off, and the rest of the indicators work fine with no faults on the car. As I say, I have checked the wiring back from the headlight and the power is coming from from the harness, which when disconnected from the BCM drops to zero. I don’t...

    Replacing the BCM (09 - Central Control Module)

    Hey chaps, Drivers side front indicator has began to illuminate continuously today after washing the car. Now first thoughts were water in the wiring etc but I’ve checked the headlight and it’s not that, I then checked the wiring to the headlight and it had 12v on the indicator wire. Having...

    Aftermarket Headunit Wiring - Bose

    That is what I wanted to avoid with the OEM one being there already. I am going to bell the cables to check that I have indeed tagged onto the correct cables. I am wondering if the mic goes to the Bluetooth prep before going to the RNS-E?

    There was spare cables that I could adapt to use the microphone, but so far even though it’s plugged in it doesn’t seem to work. Not spent much time on it yet

    Aftermarket Headunit Wiring - Bose

    Thanks for all the replies guys! @JohnS3, I have done exactly that and used a double fakra to DIN converter for the radio tuner, it’s still not the best tuner in the world so might see if I can solder in a UK one rather than a China one. Again I bought a Fakra to DIN converter for the GPS...

    Aftermarket Headunit Wiring - Bose

    Ahh well that’s good to know, I have one here but it turns out having the two ground loop isolators has rectified the problem :) so sound is much better now, not perfect but that could be down to fine tuning or I now may need to ground the Bose pin! I’m hoping to use the OEM microphone, I can...

    Aftermarket Headunit Wiring - Bose

    Hi pal, Thanks for for that, I have just tried grounding the pin but unfortunately it had no benefit :/ The two ground loop isolators I have have ordered should arrive today, on top of that I also have a coil to fit on the 12V input to separate the live, apparently that was a thing on older cars?

    Aftermarket Headunit Wiring - Bose

    Hi All, I have just fitted a new Android head unit to my RS3 and it works pretty well out the box. It came with all the wiring adapters so that the steering controls etc. all worked straight away. I have a few things I am hoping someone might be able to shed some light on however as I am a...

    Q3 Climate Control 8P Retrofit

    Exactly this! The screen has a black transparent piece over it which looks ‘facelifted’ and the knobs are different as they have thinner chrome pieces and bits of blue which again look ‘facelifted’ compared with the standard one

    Replacement key internals

    I removed the transponder chip and replaced it with the transponder from my old key, this allows the key to start the car... but anyone know if its possible to reprogram the remote?

    Replacement key internals

    hey chaps, I have purchased an 8V key body and apparently you can buy internals that fit to use the 8P transponder. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or if anyone knows much about keys and transponders, can you tell me if this key is reusable? Its an 8V RS3 key that I would like to...

    Q3 Climate Control 8P Retrofit

    I just keep pressing it back to 3 but mines set to 50 not 55 on the wingbacks. It must just be a setting from factory to automatically turn down the temperature to save the 2 chaps down stairs since the Q3 is set to 65 standard. I don’t get any issues with it fitted though, especially after...

    Q3 Climate Control 8P Retrofit

    Totally agree, though I do wish I could figure out how to disable the cool down function. When I set it to 3 I want it to stay at 3 not revert to setting 2 once its hot! I thought it was because the heat setting was incorrect for the bucket seats at first but ive turned the temp setting down and...

    Q3 Climate Control 8P Retrofit

    Nope same fault unfortunately, just looks a little better with the black screen cover instead of it being recessed and thin chrome rings instead of the thick chrome.
