Help please....problems installing a Pioneer DA230DAB to B7 RS4

    Hi guys, any help with this much appreciated.

    I am using the following parts:

    1. Pioneer SPH-230DAB Headunit

    2. Steering Wheel Stalk Adapter - Connects2 CTSAD006.2

    3. Double DIN Fascia Kit

    4. FAKRA to Audi antenna adapter - Connects2 CT27AA56

    I tried to help a friend out by 'attempting' to upgrade his RS4 (2006) BOSE RNS-E to a modern Pioneer DA-230DAB double DIN. The majority of the install has gone OK, microphone is in place, DAB antenna is in place all perfectly routed (hidden) behind the A-pillar and into the dashboard.

    I have come across some problems that I need help with please:

    1. Cannot fit the DAB aerial connector to the Pioneer connector. I understand it is a push in part (not screw) but it just will not go in.

    2. No sound coming through the speakers regardless of audio source.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Thanks guys for all the useful comments ;)

    Just for information if anyone else finds themselves in this situation then what you need to do...

    1. Don't pose the question here clearly (if you want a response)

    2. One needs to connect the blue/white wire from the Pioneer harness to the Amp On connector on the Connects2 harness

    3. You also need to connect the blue wire from the FAKRA2 aerial adaptor to a blue wire on the Connects 2 harness

    4. Finally the DAB aerial connector does not 'click' into the back of the Pioneer, it merely sits there.
