New head unit - radio reception problem
Hi - mrs has a late 2004 cooper.
The original head unit worked fine but the cd player was a bit hit and miss.
I put an alpine head unit in it yesterday, a 2011 model with ipod connect on rear and bluetooth.
I used the very helpful guide from on here and used a facia adaptor, wiring loom adaptor, and ariel adaptor i got online.
everything seems to work fine and it looks good apart from the radio reception, it works but is poor reception, worse than the original by some way, only picks up a few of the FM stations the old one did, very poor on MW.
ive checked the leads are all in properly a few times.
the original radio i took out had the flat pins in the loom at the back not the round ones.
the new one is an alpine head unit CDE103BT
any ideas or solutions people ?
