X290 dab radio issue

Anyone come across this,

(2017 Euro6 x290 130)

Sat Nav, DAB, CD head unit

This morning it refused to work on the Radio function!

Media (aux, usb or Bluetooth) sat nav, etc all work fine

But pressing the Radio button, nada zilch nothing!

Then after about 30 mins the Radio function worked

But

Only on FM & AM

No DAB

Anyone had this happen


Unfortunately Iíve had to leave my laptop as after updating multiecuscan to 3.9 or trying to, laptop decided Iím not an administrator and stopped the update, after removing the old version

Then proceeded to do a windows update 3hrs ago
So I canít plug in and see if any faults or proxy alignment will sort it

Lost without talkSPORT!!!

Re: X290 dab radio issue

How do I tell which one it is?
I did ask the useless service dept at first trucks cov to do any radio updates and van updates at service last month

Iím guessing they didnít as all issues (dab quality) and engine running were still present
But itís got to go in for egr pipe recall fitting so I will stand over them and make sure they are done

Thanks

Re: X290 dab radio issue

Iím sure the service department not as bad as that it may of been checked when you said but when these units play up first action is to check software version in unit thatís what a fiat dealer would do,as for you standing over them to do recall you could be in for long wait if heat exchanger cracked

Re: X290 dab radio issue

They say itís just a bracket needed and a couple of hours, believe me, they are that bad, but theyíre the only FPro dealer nearby, iveco main dealer with 1 fiat mechanic whoís never there
