Hello fellow audi owners ^^Hello guys!
I now have my 8V Steering Wheel installed, actually its better for you to buy the A4 8K Steering Wheel, because they have the Lowline buttons you need. the 8V Steering Wheel comes with Highline buttons.
(there is more cars than A4 8K with Lowline)
My car is a 04' 8P Lowline from scratch, i have installed steering Wheel module 8P0953549F and if you want your steering angle sensor to work you need the Slipring D.
If your car is with the newer angle sensor witch is not lokated behind the steering wheel, i dont Think you need to change your Slipring, because steering Wheel buttons are working with slipring A, C & D. The Slipring D needs a new type of airbag harness!
(this is for those who have 08' and forward)
Highline Buttons will NOT work at all, and Lowline Buttons will work with steering Wheel module 8P0953549F and 8P0953549K,
Here is how they give signals:
Thumb left: Up/Down Working!
Thumb Right: Up/Down Working!
0001: Next/FastForward Working!
0010: Not Used (mode)
0100: Not Used (voice control)
1000: Not Used (mute)
(I don't have the paddles on my steering Wheel so I don't know if they work or which code they are using)
If someone know how to tweak this codings, get in touch!! should be really nice if someone make the Mode and Mute buttons to work!
(maybe change the RNS-E to use 0010 to change source for example)
The dream is to fit an 8V steering wheel to a 2011 8P DSG facelift with an aftermarket head unit using an aftermarket steering wheel control adapter.
Absolute forum noob here so please forgive any courtesies that may be omitted.
I've recently bought a 2011 facelift 8p DSG 2.0l TDI and i think it's the absolute nuts. brilliant upgrade from my old 6n2 boy racer polo for sure!
The only thing missing in this lovely new car is a loud, balanced, high fidelity, aftermarket audio system.
What you guys have been talking about, with regards to steering wheel controls, has all hinged around OEM solutions.
Q: Is there a way that a DSG 8v (8WO419091DH 16-20) wheel could transmit the steering controls to an aftermarket head unit via way of an aftermarket steering wheel control interface ?
Q2: Is there a way that a DSG 8v steering wheel's shift paddles could be made to be recognised by my 8p DSG gearbox ?
- i see no reason why the DSG controls would be a part of the canbus system but again, am noob.
i hope somebody reads this. I'm very excited to start working on something cool
many thanks in advance ^^
