Hi and welcome to just answer

Sorry for the delay in replying to your question.

Can you please confirm the exact problem that you are getting?

I presume the connectors you are using are the 2 plugs with 8 wires in each one?

Does the parrot kit work at all in the A6 or is it totally dead?

What is the name on the front of each of the radios and what year are both of the cars?

Dave

thanks

Expert:  David-VAG replied 3 years ago.

Hi Dave

I've had a look at what I believe to be the radio that you have in your A6 and as of 2001 they no longer fitted an ignition live to the radio on the A6. Instead they rely on a signal sent through the Canbus system to tell the radio to turn on and off.

I think you will need to find your own ignition live feed to supply the Parrot kit. We are finding this more nad more with the modern cars and we have to find a suitable wire in the fusebox to use.

I've attached the diagram that should relate to the wiring connections on your radio just incase it helps you in any way.

I hope this helps and if I can help further please feel free to ask

Dave

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


ok thanks


where do you suggest i get a feed from

Expert:  David-VAG replied 3 years ago.

Hi there is a ignition live feed to the connector on the rear of the dash panel.

It's a black wire in the blue plug and should be in loaction pin 1.

Or there is another one on the 16 pin diagnostic plug down by the bonnet release again pin 1 and a black and blue wire

I hope this helps and please just check the wire with a volt meter.
