Hi guys,

Please could some one help...I've fitted an aftermarket headuit and bought a loom with boosted arieal but the reception is dire, have tried most of the suggestions on the other posts but no better??:*

I only changed the stereo because I fitted a rear camera for parking (only had the van about two weeks, my first camper A: van) sometimes it works and other times it's just constant static, any help would be really appreciated thanks T:

Camper noob.:confused:

Have you checked there is power going to the lead on the aerial adapter? could be worth connecting it to the line used for ignition into the radio (so a definate 12v otherwise the radio won't go on) and see it that makes a difference?

I used to get poor reception and it was a combination of poor aerial and poor reception area. Ended up fitting a roof aerial and whole new ball game now T:

Thanks both for the replies, I've tried all that Hoovie but no joy, I was thinking of getting an unboosted connector as the reception was awesome on the last stereo and that had no booster?:confused:

These adapters are not boosters, the amp is already in the door (t5.1) or above the headline in a T5.. These adapter allow the switch feed to flow up through the coax... 2 things you can try

Check the very fine pin in the green Fakra connector hasn't been pushed to one side, very easy done, just use a small pin etc to centralise it

Try connecting the blue wire to the red ignition feed, as this has a much higher current than the blue wire

Thanks for the reply Absolut5, I seem to have found the problem :D I noticed that when I was holding the unit and trying different things it was working fine but when I went to put it back it was starting agian so I assumed it was a grounding issue A: I have since attached the ground wire to the stereo body and the problem has stopped T: :0)

Thanks all for taking the time to reply :0) I can now get away for the weekend and have some entertainment :cool:
