    Default DAB Radio advice

    I have a 54 plate Design model Vectra with a factory fitted opera 40 sound system. When I switch from the FM radio to DAB I get the message 'DAB Box error' which I have always assumed was because a DAB box is an optional extra and was never fitted.

    I was at the dealers yesterday getting my handbrake sorted as a recall and they said it probably is fitted otherwise the option would be turned off on the radio but couldn't be sure unless they stripped the radio/aerial to find out. No way man.

    Does anyone know if there is an easier way to confirm if I have a DAB box fitted and if so what the likely problem is?

    This is the aerial. I would say that was a DAB one?

    you seem to have DAB and your unit is faulty. It is situated behind the glovebox in the top right corner. Maybe someone has removed it???

    Thanks for the info, I will try and have a look behind the glove box over the weekend. Fiddling about I noticed that I do briefly get a DAB radio station on initial turn on via the ignition but it only lasts for a few seconds and then 'DAB box error' pops up.

    It is possible that a software upgrade will sort it but you would have to enquire at the dealers. Also perhaps the leads are loose that plug into the box.

    Might be faulty there's one on eBay but I'm not 100% sure but I think there coded to car so you would need the security code from donor car

    Thanks

    Does the glove box come out easy? It seems well fitted, it's even enclosed underneath...

    Just looked at the one on ebay, it's an option if mine is knackered.

    5 torx screws, 3 at the top behind the door and 2 below it, it then pulls out/drops down. Just make sure u disconnect the interior light as you pull it out
