Qashqai J11 no DAB (retrofit)

Post by frydayfunk » Tue Jun 16, 2020 2:32 pm

Hi!

I live in Germany, but my Qashqai J11 2019 comes from Romania (EU re-import), without DAB, only FM and AM. I recently installed a new sound system and then I noticed another Fakra connection on the Nissan Connect next to the Fakra FM port.

In the service menu I find the hint that a DAB software is installed on the Connect, so the radio must support this? However, only FM and AM appear in the "Service Radio" item. During my research with article number + type designation I at least came across a picture on which this second Fakra connection was wired.

I ordered a dab antenna and attached it, unfortunately without success. I reset the radio to factory defaults, looked again in the hidden menu and made a software update to version 0821, because I probably didn't have the latest firmware installed. Unfortunately still got only FM and AM. It was a DAB antenna without 12 volts.

Have any of you tried anything in that direction yourself and do you know something? I'll put up some pictures for you.

Model name: AIVIP32RO
Nissan part number: 259157FW0A

If anyone knows anything, please let me know.

Mercedes call it a star machine, depending on car manufacture they have different names. It not only diagnoses faults and can also reprogram to make things work to the various international settings.
Past cars Mercedes B Class, S Class, E Class Estate, E Class Coupe, G Wagen, 260E interspersed with Peugeot 406 and Audi Coupe.

Hi. Could you do me a favour please. Could you please show a picture of the 40 pin plug which shows all the wires colours and where they go in the plug. I'm trying to retro fit newest sat naw to my 2016 car. Thanks

Becouse, you have no dab tuner. It must be between fakra and antena. Without this tuner, you will not get dab radio.
