    Cabriolet Radio Antenna Diagnosis

    Hi Folks

    Just want someone to agree with my thinking on this as i think its the actual antenna in the boot that is the problem now.

    So i ran another cable from the HU to the antenna in the boot and no difference.

    Then tried a normal car aerial i had in the HU and it picked up radio no probs.

    Then i wired in same old car aerial into the cable going to the HU from the antenna (in the boot) and radio worked.

    So i dont think its the cable, and as such must surely be the antenna in the boot?

    DOnt want to buy a new antenna if i'm wrong of course!

    Also what are the other 2 connectors on the unit, black one i imagine would be ground?

    Many Thanks

    Has it got an amplifier that could have stopped working?

    I know when you change the head unit you have to send power down to the amplifier otherwise you get rubbish reception

    I changed over to RNS-E from the Symphony or Concert that was in the car but that had no radio working either.

    So i think its the Antenna amp or whatever you call it now.

    Just want to be sure before i spend ze pennies!
