Oh yeah I have a 2003 A6 with bose.
Seems we on this forum know more about the correct connections than some of the suppliers of adapters - shame they don't read this forum more...cobidawg said:I don't know if I just got a bad wiring harness or they are all like that. *shurgs*
Haven't checked or noticed yet on our batteries, but in most cases there should be an indicator that tells you if the battery is still good or bad. It could be that you have a bad battery. I've seen this happen.vs2 said:Thanks. I just did that and it does shut off after a minute (get a loud noise through the speakers when it happens)
So, whats causing my battery drain then? Was ok with the Symp. II unit.
See my links below for pix of the wire/pin extraction tools. Very...very handy!!!PetrolDave said:The "proper" way is with a removal tool, but I always use one of the medium size flat blade screwdrivers from a jewellers screwdriver set.
You need to remove any plastic tabs that will prevent the terminals being pushed backwards, then press down on the locking tab with the screwdriver and push back on the terminal. Don't forget to put the plastic tabs back in afterwards.
Someone should put together a collection of: "Common installation, and troubleshooting issues"PetrolDave said:Seems we on this forum know more about the correct connections than some of the suppliers of adapters - shame they don't read this forum more...cobidawg said:I don't know if I just got a bad wiring harness or they are all like that. *shurgs*
Where the cable goes won't affect the current drain, only whether the fast digital signals used to control the CD changer work. So, NO, the position of your ground cable won't be the cause of the 600mA drain.vs2 said:Does it matter where the CD Changer harness is grounded as before when I has the S2 radio the phatbox did not work unless I had a ground wire connected directly from the phatbox itself. Now with the RNS-e I put the CD harness ground cable directly to the chassis of the RNS-e and it works but could this cause a constant 600mah draw with ignition off?
