Hi Jon, I would say the radio is busted and not the car. Its often not worth the time to repair the standard head units and a suitable adaptor or bit of wire swapping (4 and 7 on the power iso plug) and a new head unit is often the way forward.

But if you have steering wheel controls for the radio, the cost rises for extra interfaces :cry:

Yes.

The aerial is for FM.

If you have a poor aerial connection or (if your car has one) the aerial amplifier power connection disconnected you will get poor FM but AM will be unaffected.
