    confused CDC40 DAB Radio problem

    Hello!

    went to the stealers today to get them to put in the DAB radio code for my radio, as it's always been in safe mode since i got teh car from carshaft.. i mean car craft

    anyway.. the guy from the service desk came out an tried putting it in, but was then confused as to why i had normal FM radio, but no DAB. as he said you either have both or nothin. So he advised that i book it in to get it checked out on tech2.

    Just wondering if anyone else out their in vectra land has had similar problems? or heard of such nonsense???

    anyhoo, i booked it in as i would like to have this DAB thing working. i shall let ya's all know what's been said and what not!

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    The CDC 40 Opera as standard only has FM

    The DAB box and aerial are extras and run from a different aerial lead to the FM one.
    So yes you can have FM and not Dab!

    Do you have the DAb box and Dab Aerial (the one with the big base)?
    If you do not have the these then you do not have Dab.
    What is the CDC 40 doing, ie what error is coming up? Error no dab box?

    Yerh, i do have the bigger aerial base on my car.
    when i switch over from either cd, or the normal radio to the DAB, it just come's up with DAB Safe. and if you go in to it like, try to search for a station, it say's NDR2??? i think. I get normal FM/AM stations no prob, just nothing from the DAB

    But, the stealers are gonna look at it in the morning for me. the service guy seems to think there's something wrong with the unit itself
    HOPEFULLY, the previous owner didn't mess around with it, otherwise

    Oh joy! sounds like the Dab box is knackered. The dealer will need your cars car pass for the security code and should be able to put the code in and release the Dab box. But to be honest it sounds broke and they are well over £100 new. Normally if the DAB box is the correct one for the car it should never show "safe". It should take no longer than 3-5 mins to sort if they tell you different they are liars!!!

    I had my CDC40 exchanged for a new, fault free one (losing DAB stations). Unit exchanged, I pick up the car, only FM radio, no DAB. It took another hour to stealers to program it . Ithough they are profesionals

    Luckyluke - did you have any problems getting them to change the radio? Was it just losing it's memory? My local dealer said they knew about the problem but had been told (or so they said) not to just swap the radio and that they would enquire and get back to me. What was your dealers' attitude to the DAB problem?

    They were unaware of the problem. Tried to explain the problem to them and they restored my radiostation in... FM radio . Finally I found some thread (this one, look at #17) here with the case number, brought it to them and next day they ordered a new unit.

    Thanks - I'd seen that thread, but was still interested to hear what your dealers said. They haven't got back to me yet anyway (am I surprised) so I think I might go back with that quote.
