      Hi guys,

      I have a 2004 with nav and premium sound system. When I bought the truck I had no CD for the nav maps. So I called the dealer and they sold me a new head unit with DVD, bluetooth, IGO8 nav system, IPhone plug, USB, etc... This new unit comes with a complete harness that connect into OEM plug but for standard radio. When I hook it up, I had power to the unit but as you probably know, I had no sound, amp doesn't work and steering control not working. Here is the connector I have in the Touareg:


      Here is a pic of actual new unit and it's connector:



      and here is the connector I think I need:



      Is there any easy way to make everything work? Do a adaptor exist for this or can someone help me to rewire the hole system, I don't know what to do to make it work.

      Thanks

      You have to recode with vcds to let the car know that you have an upgraded headunit. Same thing i had with my mkv when i wanted to add the sat option.

      Heres more or less something close what i had to do. I cant find the page i used but this one is pretty close.

      What is that head unit out of? I have not seen a factory unit that looks like that. Especially for a Touareg. Another thing is if it is out of a newer VW you may have the issue that you don't have the correct CAN BUS to even operate it. 04 were 1.5 and you need 2.0.

      That what i was thinking, if this was an oem headunit or not. He said he bought it from a dealer so i assumed it was oem.
