Hello every one,

First, your forum is incredible rich in information, congratulations.

Sorry my English is poor, I try to search a topic on RS4 B5, but I didn't find something.


I explain my problem...

I have a B5 RS4 Exclusive (for the color) from 06/2001, full options (with RNS-4.1), 440hp, powered by ABt.

Some pics for curious...




So, I have bought an RNS-E for A6 (4B0 035 192 P)

I will like to know what I need to my upgrade.
1/ kit connector RNS-D to RNS-E : done
2/ Connector for antenna GPS and radio : done

Something else ?
Usually I don't need to have a VAG-tool to change something, because I have already a navigator, right ?

Please let me know something.


Regards :wink:


PS : installation similar to B5 A4 with Navi+ RNS-4/D

Morning,

I received my RNS-E unit part 4B0 035 192 P.






Last night I take 10 minutes to control if the unit work good, with the right PIN code ... I tried quickly: was perfect :D

Bose sound system work great ...





BUT :
1/ I loose the SIC (= DIS or FIS display) information :?:
-> I need to do something with VAG-COM :?:
(Strange I have the RNS-4 unit before :roll: )

2/ I guess is not shut down completely ... :?:
-> I have some trouble with the CAN-BUS :?:


Thanks in advance for your confirmation and help :?

Nice car and nice pictures. Do a quick test and see if the buttons on the RNS-E light up when you turn on the lights. If they don't then something is wrong with you CAN wires. If you do have access to a VAG-COM, check the faults logged in #56. This will alos tell you if the CAN wires are connected properly.

thanks !

Ok I'm try after job (is 02h20 PM for me) but I think there is no light on RNS-E when I'lm switch on :roll:

I thought I didn't need to modify something with VAG-COM, beacause I haved an RNS-4.1 :cry:


PS : sorry for my poor english ... :roll:

You may not need a VAG-COM but it's always usefull in cases like this. If the buttons don't light up, swap the CAN wires and see if that makes a difference. It could also be that the RNS-E you got is not coded for an A6 which would also make it not read the CAN messages properly.

for sure is coded for A6 ...
but when you tell : swap, you would like tell cut or reverse ?


Sorry again, and thanks for your help

If you simply cut power you will loose the antenna signal. In the B6 it's behind the trim on the left side of the trunk. No idea if that's the same in the B5 though.

One option would be to get CAN directly from the instrument cluster:
Grey Connecter Pin 5 CAN H
Grey Connecter Pin 6 CAN L

If you don't bridge the TMC tuner, the 26 pin connector is useless anyway.

yes ... I bridge the TMC :wink:




There are a lot of more problem with the adaptator, immediately when I plug the RNS-E the Bose system turn ON, and stay ON all time :roll:

Hi again,

I'm checking all the pin for the adaptator ...
a lot of error are on it :evil:

Some one can confirm that one are for the power ?!



"D15" (KL 30) on RNSE correspond to "Ub+" on RNS-4.1
"D12" (KL 31) on RNSE correspond to "ground" on RNS-4.1


thanks
