radio - sky window

Hi,
i own the 1.2 active 80 version purchased about 6 months ago. the problem with the radio sums up that sometimes it...plays dead! I mean that i switch it on and all the lights come on but it does nothing! No indicatins, no cd no radio, nothing. It just stays there staring back at me! I have to switch it on and off a couple of times until it comes to life. also very rarely it seems to lose any radio frequencies. Like the antenna has come off. It sorts itself out after 10 minutes or so.Aso there is the problem of changing tracks on the cd. It goes back a couple of songs when it is supposed to go to the next one. Very odd!
about the sky window now. when handling it remotely by pressing the button on my key ring, it does not seem to like it very much. On 2 occasions i had to visit my car dealer to reset it cause it stayed open and would not do anything. I managed to close it manualy from the panel. But it was like the software crashed! The dealer pressed some buttons which i could not figure out and it was ok. But since then i do not open or close the thing remotely.
anyone had any similar problems with the sunroof? If you know anything about it please let me know!

Thanks!:D

I have the Stilo 1.6 active, and my stereo stopped working the same way as you decribe. I took it to my local dealer and they pulled it out to get the details off the back and it started working again. But they replaced it with a new one anyway and it's been OK since. I've never had a problem operating my sky window with the remote control but a problem I did have was a creaking sound coming from the roof on the right hand side (drivers side on mine). it is very annoying but can be cured by pulling away the seal that the glass blades sit on when closed. this seal disappears under the metal roof of the car. pull it away so you can see under the seal. Now take a can of WD40 with the long pipe attatched and spray it under the roof of the car near the front corner or wherever the creaking is coming from. The WD40 runs under the channel the sky window runs in and cures the creaking. It's not the sky window creaking but the roof of the car and the channel the sky window runs in rubbing together. You might not have this problem,but if you ever do now you know how to fix it. It took me nearly a month to find out how to cure it and it drove me mad. Peter (stiloactive)

I have this problem with my radio. do you have the radio / cd single slot?

It happens if i turn the car off when the cd is playing. Just remember to hit the radio button before you turn off and its fine

Same thing here. The radio (single CD) behaved just like you're describing, especially if I turned it on with the CD being the source when I last turned it off. Got a new radio from the dealer and it has worked perfectly since.

Is this method of opening the sunroof/windows standard (I have ordered the dynamic) or the optional 'keyless entry' extra ????

Please advise, thanks
