    BOSE sub / aerial not picking up radio signal

    Been told they could run off the same fuse. Is this the case, or something more serious?

    Dead annoying! Only got the car yesterday, reckon the guy before me had a DVD flip out screen in the front (there are 2 screens in the back) and has buggered it up somehow. All the connectors are plugged into the unit, and I cant see any broken wires. Its a concert tape player in an 01 S3.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I believe the aerial gets its power down the coax.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    If you play a tape does sound come out of all speakers ie rears and sub?

    He probably had a front DVD and needed an aerial adaptor. Is there a strangle connector on the aerial lead?

    You can check the connections from the diagram to the top of the radio as I can't remember which wire turns the amp on.

    I bought it from a garage, so wont be able to contact the old owner until the log book comes through. Then I can only write to him, and cross my fingers for a reply!

    Only one aerial on 8L chassis...on the roof so no need for the diversity switch.
