    We need a bit more info....

    What headunit do you have? Genuine or aftermarket?

    The aerial is in the side rear window if its an Avant. Not sure where it is located on the saloon models.

    The antenna amp is above the rear window in a saloon and known to fail. Not cheap to replace....

    Before buying an antenna amp, why not remove the headunit and check the aerial connections and check the wiring/aerial to see if all is good.

    The amps are not cheap. I would not buy a second hand one as so many fail. As Dan says check all wiring first.
