    Had a similar problem on my previous Vec B when listening to AM frequencies, however it was fine when listening to FM.
    Even stranger, the cure was to turn on the rear wiper for a couple of times and this sorted it out!
    Vx could never find the cause.

    Perry, did the other frequencys work ok. I've got the CDC40 with DAB and AM has never worked but FM and DAB are AOK and because I have my external sat nav and nokia car kit wired and spliced in, the dealer wont look at it. I've got to have it all disconnected from the VX system first. Would unit did you have in your Siggy?

    Willco AM was non existant and FM was ok ish but would lose stations very easily and only allowed me to pick up the main ones, IE Radio 1, 2 etc and even then keep losing them. I have the plain old CDR2005 in mine.

    Hope that helps
