XCarLink turns off when I turn engine on!


Registered User
I have a 2005 B7 A4 Avant 3.0TDI with RNS-E and Bose as standard, no MFSW and no CD Changer.

I have just bought an XCarLink SKU919, I installed it no problem and coded in a CDChanger using VAG-COM using the code 0319113 (was 0319111) for the RNS-E module, it works great while engine isn't running, however as soon as I start the engine it the music stops playing and the changer button is greyed out. If I turn the engine off, disconnect and reconnect the XCarLink earth it miraculously comes back to life, the changer button illuminates and I can play the tracks again.

So basically it only works with the engine off..... Pretty much useless.......

Has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something wrong or is it a faulty unit?
