Hi all,
My first post here. My car is a 2014 Audi A4 premium (concert radio).
VCDS scan (below) shows code 02983 - Open connection between Window Antenna and impedance converter 1
I pulled the right D pillar trim and found a loose connector from the window antenna. Before I took the pic, the connector was just sitting inside the square hole that's above it. I'm confused because it looks like it wasn't connected to anything. Could it have been connected to a wire harness that has fallen down inside the pillar? If so, is there any way to retrieve it? Thanks for any tips/help. Rob

HI, I have a feeling that someone disconnected it (?). The question then becomes why . I'm not familiar with the "impedance converter 1" Did you purchase this car new? Once you find the other end of the harness for this plug , connect it and monitor your sound system performance closely. If you can't find the other end of the harness, the "box" (IC) may have been removed ??? See if you can find a pic or a car like yours to compare ; or an exploded diagram . Perhaps there was window tint film at one time and it was disconnected for that process?????

Thanks for you reply. It is very strange to me as the shop manual shows aerial amplifier 2 - R111 and there isn't anything there. I am the second owner of this car, I bought it from a dealer in 2017 - It was a leased car. I might be able to see inside the pillar with a small bore snake I have (if I can fit it through one of the holes there). My FM stations are ok, I just would like to get rid of the annoying code. I'm thinking I might not be able to.

Just following up on this if anyone else runs into/searches this issue. The missing connector on the passenger side is because there is no amplifier on that side for MY model car. Other models may vary. So, the problem possibly lies in the antenna amplifier on the driver side of the car. I ordered a new antenna amplifier and will see if the dtc code goes away. I will follow up once again to report if the issue persists or is solved.

Excellent! Since the repair info was as clear as mud I dropped some notes into a new Wiki page:


That's not my best work but it may help the next guy.

Side note, after stumbling across the other possible Impedance Converter DTC (R111 which was not in your car) I think this RoW model had them on both sides: https://forums.ross-tech.com/index.php?threads/28997/
