Hey guys, i have an Audi TT which came with the RNS-E radio from factory. I am trying to replace the broken rns-e with the Concert headunit but it just won’t power up.

I’ve read in another thread that 2 pins needs to be joined (DI SENS & +UB) However, I’m not too sure how to join the pins. Could someone please help me? Thanks

You need the safe wire connected which is the +UB as you mentioned, you can buy a repair wire from the parts dept and splice it into the DI SENS.

Also your radio signal might be very poor as the RNSE (HF/ZF) used a different antenna setup to the Concert/Symphony (HF/HF). So it would be best to buy a & splitter like this to fix this issue.

Thank you very much! That’s really helpful.
So do i just call up my local dealer and ask for a radio repair wire? Do you know if there’s any part number for it?
Many thanks for your help!

I dont know the part number, but if you go into parts with your chassis number and ask them for a repair wire for the radio they should be able to pick one out for you. It's a fairly standard ISO connector, I have hundreds of them in my spares draws but unfortunately they are no accessible to me and wont be for a while.
