Recently bought a 98 Audi Cab (UK) and can't figure out what's wrong
with the radio or electric aerial. Hope the following makes sense and
someone can help or offer any suggestions/advice:
1. The radio fails to switch on when the button is pressed although
the radio does illuminate with the dash when dark and the headlights
2. If I leave the radio switched on, after driving for a while
(anywhere between 20 mins to 2 hours), the radio mysteriously starts
working. If I then stop the car, switch off the engine so the radio
stops (but leave the radio switched on) and wait five mins, when I
start the engine again, the radio is fine and works. If however, I
switch the radio off after its been working, trying to switch it back
on as per normal results in nothing.
3. When the radio is switched on and starts working, the electric
aerial makes no attempt to extend, neither does the motor for the
aerial kick in.
4. If I switch off the radio after it has started working, the
electric aerial motor kicks in and you can hear it making a noise as
if it is trying to retract the aerial even though its not extended.
I've checked fuses and wiring that all seem to be fine. The radio is a
standard fit Audi Blaupunkt Delta CC with 6 CD changer. I can't figure
out what's wrong and whether the fault lies with the radio, aerial,
wiring or all of the above. Have been unable to test the radio in
another Audi or try a different model radio in my Audi.
Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance.
