View Full Version : Audio recommendation for 97' A8

10-25-2006, 08:04 PM
I bought this A8 with the previous owner' retrofits of an in-dash 5" screen and DVD player. The DVD player is hidden in the glove box with wires running to the center console. Anyway, it doesn't work... the unit will power on, but nothing happen afterwards... no screen, no sound.

Could it be just wiring problem? Worst case is to just replace it with something else. Any suggestions?

without seeing it first hand, I cant really make any recommendations. If you have any experience with wiring you should be able to find the problem. Sorry, there are very few A8 owners that have tampered with their audio setup.

That's alright, I've searched on this forum and some others, found nothing regarding specific mod to audio system too. Except one guy trying to replace "premium Bose speakers" on the A8, which is totally not what I wanted.

I guess, I might check on wiring some more if I can get the DVD player and screen/control unit in the center console to come out.

Appreciate your comments!
