RNS-E 2010 (Media with LED) Problems in RS4 B5

    i fit a rns-e with led screen from an a3 to my old rs4 b5 with a kufatec adapter.

    I put the 2 can cables to my grey connector on the speedometer as there were no cables (had an old concert radio).

    I have the navigation info in the fis and it works.

    There are only 2 thins that dont work -

    - Rnse doenst go off when ignition is off and not on when i turn off the ignition.
    - The radio titles are not displayed in the fis. The place were those were displayed is black. (Speedo coded to 5)

    I cannot code the rns-e to a6. It doenst accepct the coding. What i can code is a3 or a4.

    Does anybody have an idea on how i can change it.

    I couldnt test the navigation as the car is in winter sleep, but i think it should work (In the garage the car has 1 satelite)

    To work in a B5 you need to be able to code the RNS-E for an A6.

    However, as has been already posted here the 2010+ RNS-E cannot be coded for an A6.

    So a 2010+ RNS-E is not suitable for your B5 - sorry.

    If you use a cangate module then it is possible, I put a 2010 RNS-E coded for A4 into an A2 and used a cangate module from Bjarne to generate GALA from the speed signals on the infotainment CAN bus.

    My nav works perfectly except for speed limit displays.
  4. s4_driver New Member

    jes that is what i want.

    But had you the problem with the non saving pin? - Bjarne said he could write the vin that the rns-e expects to see so that it shouldnt be a problem. But i cannot enter the engineering mode to get the vin.
  5. craigyb Active Member

    I don't have the PIN problems...
  6. s4_driver New Member


    You connected all cables before the cangate or with the cangate?
  7. craigyb Active Member

    I never had pin problems with or without cangate.
  8. s4_driver New Member

    can the problem be due that the speedometer has no funkturm and the date and time is differnt to the rns-e (speedo shows 1.1.1999 and a complete different time
  9. craigyb Active Member

    Two things that need to be done are, coding of the RNS-E to A4 and coding of the cluster to use CAN bus

    That should sync the time up and the cangate will fix the time issue with the RNS-E/cluster that the B5 has and possibly the GALA/speed signal issue.
  10. s4_driver New Member

    this is coded to 5.

    I have radio and navigation info in the fis
  11. craigyb Active Member

    Ok, then the other two things that fixed the PIN code issues were to reset the RNS-E by holding RADIO & SETUP for 10 seconds and also driving around for about an hour with the radio on and entering the PIN code.
  12. s4_driver New Member

    I tried resetting, but then i have the same issue.

    Driving i couldnt test as the rs4 is in winter sleep (lot of snow and only summer tires)

    So you mean i should turn on the rns-e drive an hour without entering pin code or start the rns-e enter the pin code and drive for an hour?

    I came into the engineering mode and there is no vin present.
  13. craigyb Active Member

    They were fixes for the pre 2010 RNS-E, I cannot say for sure if they work on the 2010 RNS-E.

    But they should, the RNS-E accepts the VIN on both year models and the B5 has always had this issue of the PIN/time sync, but the cangate has been used to fix it.

    I made a scan with vcds:

    Hi Dave.

    Why do you insist that 2010+ LED RNS-E can not be coded for A6?

    thank you


  16. craigyb Active Member

    Because several of us have tried to code it for A6

    And since craigyb has more experience than anyone else I know that's good enough for me.

    how can you code it? - Normally it doesnt accept the coding
