Poor Reception On The Radio

Hi guys.
Well ever sinse I have had my punto, the radio has been horrible
Is there a cause to this and a solution? I was thinking of getting a spare radio cable and wiring it to the back somewhere if that is what's causing it?
Thanks

Re: Poor Reception On The Radio

Have you thought about only listening to the radio when you are on the top of a hill?

This should easily fix the problem.


Or just make sure the aerial connections are clean and snug into the radio, from the tip of the aerial, to the radio itself.

No mate. I have a sporting aerial back on now for that oem look. The radio is a near new alpine 130 HU so I don't think it could be that either. Possibly the connection on the roof? Does this come off easily? as in from the inside
