  1. Radio Reception

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I haven't looked at anything yet but I have very poor reception on my radio. I'm ex motor trade so I know the usual suspects but before I look - am I wasting my time, i.e. is this normal? If not, is there a particular known fault - before I start dropping headlinings etc. ?
  2. Radio reception

    Alfa Giulietta
    Radio reception on my Giulietta is an ongoing problem so any help would be appreciated. The radio reception has interference on anything other than 3 'strong' stations eg Heart. I have had the aireal base and antenna replaced and things have improved - but interference is still there. The Head...
  3. Poor radio reception

    Alfa Giulia
    I've had this problem pop up in the past few weeks or so I reckon. I'm having issues with poor radio reception on DAB and FM. This is for example running the same route I always do with the same station which used to be 100% fine but now cuts in and out constantly on DAB. Even when stationary...
  4. GQV radio reception starting to fail again (after antenna base replacement)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, As the title suggests, I am pretty convinced that my antenna base is failing again as the radio reception in my car is starting to get ropey. I could be imagining it but it seems worse in damp/wet conditions. I only replaced the antenna base about 10 months ago so surely it can't be on...
  5. 147 poor radio reception

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anything be done to improve it? Mine is terrible. Everything is plugged in at the back but it seems to be really poor if out and about.
  6. 159 radio no reception when ignition on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I have a problem with the radio reception on my 2009 159. It was getting a bit fuzzy so I had a look on the forum and came across the issue with water ingress into the aerials. I took the areial apart and cleaned it, put it back together but no difference. Had another look and found...
  7. DAB Reception Issues

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm having reception issues with DAB in my 2015 Mito, it was working fine with no drops in reception up until November-ish. Initially thought the weather was the issue but I've noticed it's working when I start the engine but as soon as a pull off it loses signal, this happens wherever I am...
  8. Poor FM Reception

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Sorry for not posting this in ICE as I suspect that it may be more Giulietta specific. Bella has developed over the last few weeks extremely poor FM reception. AM is fine but I just cannot receive my normal stations and auto scan will not find them. I have tried resetting and this...
  9. Another bad radio reception question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Having read loads on here about bad radio reception (159) it seems to be most likely that the cause is water leaking into the aerial base and corroding contacts. Most obvious solution would be a new aerial, however i have reservations about the whole roof lining removal to fit it thing, far to...
  10. DAB Radio Reception Bristol area

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Folks, when I purchased my Giulietta last year, I was able to get DAB radio broadcast in my area. However, now there are no stations being picked up at all. Is there a problem with my arial or with DAB in general? Would be glad to hear from anyone with similar issues. Thanks
  11. Poor Radio Reception

    Alfa Giulietta
    2010 Giulietta wont pick up anything apart from a couple of strong local stations. Auto seek/tune is hopeless. When you touch the aerial, reception improves. Any ideas before I get into checking wiring. Don't really want to mess around with the headlining if I don't have to.
  12. Mito radio reception

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All I'm a long time user of this site but new to the Mito forum,have a Brera my self and just got my wife a lovley white(cream) Mito,i'd read that the Brera's reception on FM is meant to be bad but where i live it's been fine but i find the Mito's is terrible,it was ok at the garage when i...
  13. Weak FM/AM/DAB Reception Fix + GPS

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So after many different attempts to fix the weak radio reception in the 159 I decided to get a little drastic with it :thumbs: The 159 aerial is active and requires phantom power so if you replace the factory head unit with an after market one you need an in-line power adapter to deliver power...
  14. 159 Standard Radio Reception

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, I have been reading a few threads regarding radio signal issues on the 159. My signal is patchy on FM and nothing on MW / LW. I have replaced the base and this has had no effect. The car is a 09 ti and has the revised stubby aerial. My question is, does the original bee sting aerial from...
  15. 156 lost radio reception

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have the Sony CDX-C5000RX radio in my 2001 156. It was working fine until the other day but as of now it will not receive any stations at all!. I have looked at the Amp in the rear pillar and cleaned and re-made all connection, which looked fine anyway. I have taken out the head unit to...
  16. How to improve radio reception?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I've been recommended this item to improve the radio reception as it has deteriorated massively with the Chinese HU. In Car Entertainment, Bluetooth & Multimedia fitting solutions and interfaces It is described as "Arial adapter cable for European cars with ISO connectors that have amplified...
  17. GT head unit poor reception

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have recently acquired a stunning 06 3.2 GT which has the factory fit double din head unit. I don't know if it's just me, but the radio reception seems terribly poor. Is this just typical of this unit or is there something that I should investigate further. Speakers have Bose logo so I guess...
  18. MY2014 DAB Reception

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello. Can I ask how others find the reception using DAB on the 2014 models? Mine seems to come and go quite often and I end up using FM instead. Thanks
  19. long wave radio reception?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi - this may have been asked before, but can't spot it........tried to on ICE section of Forum, but no responses yet. Giulietta 2013 Lusso - standard-fit radio/CD player. Is it possible to get Long Wave reception (for the Test Matches)? Doesn't seem possible as far as I can see. On my previous...
  20. Aftermarket stereo radio reception issue solved!

    ICE & Blue&Me
    For everyone with an aftermarket stereo complaining about the poor radio reception. This is because the 159 and a few other models are fitted with an in built antenna amplifier. This is normally turned on by a signal fed down the coax cable from the head unit, clearly aftermarket stereos lack...
