I thought that this would then 'power' the unit as in the factory fitted model that came with the car originally. The reception is still poor and just as it was before I fitted the adapter. Any advice greatly appreciated. I've taken off the C-pillar and all connections are home and where they should be. Thanks in advance.
checked for the presence of 12v at your connection source with a multimeter? sounds like your antenna amp is without power
