Default DAB Nightmare - 20th April 2017, 08:51 AM

Hi All

Pleeeeeease can some help before I resort to a hammer!?!

The DAB in my 2011 cooper D will not recognise or register ANY stations. I bought the car three weeks ago from a small dealer in Milton Keynes-absolutely no issues there-they were brilliant-the dab was working fine-got back to Leicester and now whenever I switch to dab I get nothing....no stations...nothing 😩

I've tried the alist/astore but I just get an empty station box or a 'no signal' display. Am I doing something wrong that is very basic? Should I go to somewhere like Halfords (?) to see if they can help?

My local mini / sytner want the car for 2 days and 150 to 'advise' which seems ridiculous.

Any and all help hugely appreciated!
Thanks
Matt

all you need to do is reset the DAB, so it recognises your local area.

I've done it! I don't know how but after half an hour of random button pushing I have finally located and stored my dab channels! Thanks for your help.
