Re: RADIO - no reception

Check the fuses first, the stilo does have a powerd fm amplifier for the aeriel due to it being all the way at the back of the car.

The original visteon head units tend to fail though, i had one where i had reception for about 5 minutes into driving untill it warmed up when it lost all reception, repaired under warrenty for me though

might be time for a shiney new headunit, theyre not that expensive though.

Thats exactly the problem I am having, any idea as to what causes it? repairable? as my stilo is a 54 its well out of warranty now.

I have the blaupunkt cd changer which is why I'd like to get the head unit working otherwise I'd be looking at a more expensive fix as the blaupunkt is unlikely to fit other head units?
