    Hi guys,

    as post says I just replaced my RCD310 with an RNS-510, I got secondhand. Unit powers up ok, but there is no audio for anything. I've just got the bog standard VW audio system.

    Do I have to go to a dealer to fix this, presume it's some coding thing? Or is there anyway I can do it myself?

    Cheers

    Hi

    I fitted one of these to our Touran 15 months ago, there are settings that need coding using VCDS, we had to code ours to our vehicle.

    You wont be sorry for changing it, when it is coded.

    Out of interest, what vehicle do you have.

    Good Luck

    It's a B6 Passat Bluemotion. Did the dealer do it for you? If you don't mind me asking, how much was the coding?

    Cheers

    Hi

    Coded it myself with VCDS 17.3

    Not difficult. if you have VCDS its just a case of going through coding help and putting a check in the relevant boxes and then saving it.

    You could check in your locality on Ebay for VCDS coding help, it is offered quite regularly, or through any of the forums, there are some helpful people around.

    Pity your not in the West Midlands.

    You really need to have car scanned with VCDS, it is possible you could also have a short to ground (error reported with VCDS) in a speaker wire, which could cause the same problem. VCDS will give info and also any faults reported in the rest of your car systems.

    Which can then be cleared, then if their is still a fault, because some may be historic, you will know what you are dealing with.

    Gave up on it and sent the unit back, DVD player didn't work either so couldn't update firmware or maps. Will look again for another one this time I will make sure it has not been coded for a hardware amp.

    Hello

    Understand your situation, however, most if not all the things that you mention need coding with VCDS, granted DVD not working is no good. if you do get another one, would be happy to help and perhaps even try to put you in touch with someone your end with VCDS, for all the coding.

    Good Luck
