Do I have the right loom? 6-919-75802 (Car ready for MKIV?)
 
Hi,

short version: I think my car had a MKIV drive, but it's not there now. How do I determine if my wiring is OK to just put in a replacement MKIV drive?

long version: I have a 2005 E53 3.0d I bought used last year, that I suspect it used to have satnav that the drive failed on, so the dealer just yanked the MKIV drive.

I have :
- A loom, part number 6-919-75802, with 2 18 pin connectors on it, one purplish, one light blue. The connectors are dangling where a MKIV drive would've been
- a GPS antenna wire hanging down near the CD stacker (cable P/N 8-377-434 which is a GPS antenna cable according to realoem).
- TV
- Widescreen bordmonitor
- bluetooth

before I go buying a MKIV drive, can someone please confirm the loom 6-919-75802 is the right loom? It doesn't match on realoem so I'm stumped...

Apologies if this is a FAQ.

Cheers + thanks,
Scott.

Sounds right to me mate, plug the GPS in to the male SMB and then the purple and blue and away you go.

You **may** need to swap the 2 blues around from the TV module (and nav), as the main blue plug needs to be connected to a live device.

Thanks for the info mate.

The TV module is down near the spare wheel, the MKIV would've been up near the CD stacker I think.

Are you suggesting that I might have to pull the blue plug out of the TV, put it into the MKIV (assuming it reaches), and plug the currently dangling blue connector into the TV? Is there a writeup on why this is required somewhere?

1000 Thanks again for your help..

Cheers,
Scott.

You're welcome mate.

Right.

Yes, but...

Not sure about the x5 mate, on the e46 (what I have) this was the case, I have the retrofit so that could be different, I was just mentioning it just in case.

Not that I'm aware of.

I had to do it when I did the TV retrofit as the nav and TV must be plugged in the right way round so that the nav/tv are "seen" by the system and use the display correctly (or you just get a black screen).

Does the OBC and TV work on the screen now?

Sure does.
I'm hoping I can just plug in a MKIV drive unit, and use navcoder to code it...

Cheers,
Scott.

Hi Guys,

I'm going to try my Mate's MKIV in my car to see if it's worth buying one and works with my loom..

Will his unit need re-coding to work with my car?

Will navcoder be able to do this re-coding, or is it a dealer job?

Cheers + thanks,
Scott.

To test, no coding required, to keep, use navcoder to set the vin.

oztme 02-09-2010 05:14 PM

thanks very much mate. I will try it out on the weekend. If it works, I'll post up a howto and some photos... I suspect it won't, but worth a try :)
Cheers,
Scott

Hi Guys,

IT WORKS!

Thanks a heap guys. I tested a mate's MKIV in my car, and turns out the loom was the right one. The dealer told me that my car was not Nav'd from the factory, but for some reason, the loom works. I have TV, so maybe they use the same loom.

So, based on the successful test of Mates MKIV, I ordered the same model off ebay for 700$. It arrived today; I plugged it in. Worked first crack!

I had rung the dealer, and they told me 2200$, plus loom & installation, plus up to 5 hours for recoding etc.

This forum, and 700$ later I have nav!

Brilliant.

To other people in my situation, if you have the purple and blue connectors and a GPS wire hanging down, you might find if you test a MKIV, it just works! Wuhoo

Cheers
Scott.
