can you find out the color of the IGN Live cable for me? Thanks.
Ok, there is 2 looms on an after market stereo <asuming someone hasnt cut
the old wiring> the first loom is the Audi one that connects to your Gamma
radio<the one installed at the factory> the 2nd loom is the aftermarket one
that is fitted by you or a car stereo place that allows the Audi wiring to
connect to a Sony Stereo<I have all sony as well>.
find the RED cable which thicker than most others on the 2nd loom and on the
same connector there is a YELLOW cable. there are also numorous other cables
but they are speaker etc cables.
At the moment the RED wire will be connected to the IGN live cable on the
Audi wiring loom, this is becasue the SONY aftermarket cabling is wired
wrongly, the RED wire should be connected to the PERM live connector, and
the YELLOW wire to the IGN live.
The easiest way to change this is to remove the MOLEX style pins and swap
them over i.e RED goes in YELLOW pin hole and vice vesa.
IF you have STANDARD Audi fit cableing and aftermarket stereo this is your
problem, I have seen it loads of times before, you cant do any harm either
as the red and yellow wire are both lives and the BLACK wire is your earth
HTH if you want to see pictures I could take some
