Anyone know where I can get a supply of switched power near the central console stack? I'm stalling a Parrot 3200LS and need to find a source of switched power. Except for that, it's been plug and play with the CDR-23 (which is extremely cool!). The Parrot comes complete with a prewired set of ISO connectors that plug right into the back of the Becker CDR-23.

Thanks in advance and Happy Thanksgiving!

Several attempts, but no success thus far

Pin 5 into connector A of the CDR-23 is an antenna line, should be +12V when the radio is on. I would settle for that because what use is the handsfree kit w/o the radio on (and powering the speakers)? But it appears to be constant 12V when I jumpered it.

I also went down to the ash tray. There's a light there. Ignition on => light on, yay! Nope, it's +6V, not +12V.

Next up, I went to the environment controls. There are three Audi connectors on the back. The driver's side connector has a yellow wire-- yellow often is switched power... nope. The last connector (passenger's side) has several brown (=ground) wires, a red and a red-white wire, a black, a black-white and a purple. I messed around with my DMM and found the red was (drum roll please...) unswitched +12V. Apparently so are the black and black-white wires. The purple may be switched.

So does anyone know the pinouts to the connectors on the back of the environment (A/C) controls on a Cayenne?

Thanks

A4 is unswitched power on the radio.

A8 is ground.

If you have the Telephone prep that is behind the front console then there is both switched and unswitched power on that.

There is another optional telephone prep that resides (if you have it) under the passenger seat as I recall.

Hi Loren,

How do I find the Telephone prep connector behind the front console?

Thanks,

I gave up/in and hooked up to the driver's side fuse box for +12V switched. It was not as difficult as I thought and, since I had to run the mic cable that direction anyway, not a big deal.

Overall, the CDR-23 and the Parrot are a nice combo.

Hi, I have a simular problem. Also looking for switched 12V (on when ignition is on). Where did you succeed in the fuse box? I tried a lot of the fuses, but then all seem to be unswitched.

Thanks, frank

Frank,

I'll have to check the exact position, but it was on the bottom row of the driver's side fuse box.

Fuse slot 47

Hi,

Thanks or the reply. Just to make sure slot 47 only gives power when the ignition is on??

I measured nearly all fuses and started to think that all the fuses where non switched. for instance the sunroof fuse. The sunroof fuse give 12V full time, but the roof only functions with the ignition on. I will give it a try tomorrow.

Thanks, fank
