so i was looking at the RNS-E adaptor i'm using and for the CDC:



and based on the following:

B. EXT Control Connector
RNS-E connections

2 - CDC-NF GND ---------------------------- Connector 1 – CD GND - Pin 18
4 - U14R-2 ----------------------------------- Connector 1 – CD +12V – Pin 16
6 - CDC-Data out --------------------------- Connector 1 – CD Data Out – Pin 14
7 - BOSE Pin -------------------------------- Connector 1 – GND – Pin 8
8 - CDC-NF links IN ------------------------- Connector 1– CD Left – Pin 19
9 - CDC-NF rechts IN ----------------------- Connector 1– CD Right – Pin 20
10 - U14 ST CDC ---------------------------- Connector 1– CD Acc – Pin 17
11 - CDC -Data IN --------------------------- Connector 1– CD Data In – Pin 13
12 - CDC- Data CLK ------------------------- Connector 1– CD Data CLK – Pin 15

C: EXT Control Connector
8 - Line Out GND ---------------------------- Connector 1 – CD GND – Pin 10
it looks like i'm just missing the CD GND connection... on the Connector #1 (red one), the pin #10 has no wire...

however i've already got a wire in the pin #8 of the Connector C - EXT Control, which i' assuming is the one i should use for the GND connection...
*edited (it didn't make sense at all...:roll: )*
that wire goes back to the pin #3 of the Connector #1, and it's the wire of the speaker GND...

so my quesiton... should i just tape that wire?

TIA!

Look at the S8 schematic again, right at the bottom of the page is the GND connection for the CD changer. It wont work without it.

well i had already looked at it and it's where i got that from:

C: EXT Control Connector
8 - Line Out GND ---------------------------- Connector 1 – CD GND – Pin 10
well actually i assumed that what you meant by:

craigyb said:
Additional For CD changer - Connector 1 – CD GND – Pin 10 to Connector 3 - Pin 8
was to say that the Connector 3 was the Connector C - EXT Control (???)...

or were you actually refering to the same Connector 3 as the one i labelled as #3 in the pic above???

now i'm totally confused...

i'm gonna need to have another look at my wires/connectors, but i'm pretty sure that the pin #8 of the Connector C - EXT Control is already occupied...

On the 20 pin red connector you need to GND pin 10, the closest place was the GND wire from the symphony adaptor connector 3 pin 8, not on the quad lock but at the symphony end.

Pin 8 of connector 3 is the GND from the car to the adaptor and goes to pin 12 of connector D (Masse KL.1)

Clear as mud....

sorry... :? ... i'm still confused here...

where does the GDN pin 10 of the connector #1 go to on the RNS-E adaptor then, connector A, B, C or D? or does it not even go to that adaptor?

i thought i had that figured out but i guess not... :roll:

btw where do you guys source the wires/pins from?

wait...

are you saying that the wire to pin 10 of the connector #1 goes to the pin 8 of the connector #3??? :?

i guess that would make sense since on the Audi Nav+ Information Site[/u] that pin 8 of the connector #3 is listed as "ground"...

so if that's the case, can i just run a wire from the pin 8 of connector #3 to the ground wire of the CDC? unless someone can tell me where to get connectors/pins...[/code][/flash]
