    Default DAB stopped working

    Hi All
    Been having starting problems due to the EGR & following a flat battery episode this morning the DAB has stopped working
    The station still comes up on the screen but i get no sound!
    The CD still works fine!
    Any ideas???

    Sounds like you need a cold reset.

    Un-do the battery again, for a couple of hours..
    Then reconnect as usual.

    This tends to solve about 90% of electrical glitches.

    Failing that, check to see if your DAB is actually powering up - check fuses in the end of the dash (passenger side)
    Usual ones to check are -
    F1, F4, F7, F9, F10, F12, F17, F19 and F26.

    Possible condensation in a connector or the head-unit...

    Caused by the car warming up after being frozen up over night.

    I know it plays havoc with my Nav CD...
    It spits out the Nav CD, which is steamed up / damp.

    A quick wipe down with a soft cloth and the Nav works again...


    so yes to me - condensation...
