Retrofit full PDC and canbus

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

For reasons I can't explain I am well along the way to retrofitting full front and rear PDC to my A4 avant.

I have front and rear bumpers with the appropriate sensors painted and ready to go.

I have full wiring spec, 8 channel control unit and the kufatec looms and have sorted out most of the issues. However I need to make connections to the convenience can high and low and gala and kufatec recommend connecting into the plugs on the instrument cluster for this. The rest of the wiring is fairly straight forward.

Does anyone know where the dash panel harness can connectors or other more accessable can connections are located?

If there is interest in this I will do a "how to guide" when complete

Cheers,

Dave

There is no how to guide, but I'd be happy to help you if you fancy an afternoon tinkering. I'm in Worksop.

Hi Shark,

Might take you up on that - just need to get clear in my mind the best way to do it before I start.

I cant find anyone who has done the full PDC retrofit so the "how to" will be written if I can make it all work!!

Well I can do the electronicy bits and probably sus the coding out if you can do the greasy bits - or do those bits first perhaps?

Hi! I know is been long time since you did this, but I am willing to do it too. I have bought allmost everything apart from the bumbers. I would like to know a few things:

where are the beepes located? (Front and rear - any pictures? where are the mounting points)

where is the controller located - any pictures where are the mounting points?

are there any pictures retrofitting it?

and last but not least where do you pass through the cables? (from interior to exterior and engine compartment to interior?)

thanks

My car is an A4 1.8T Quattro B7
