Loss of DAB radio signal

Chris Chapman

Recommended Posts

I have a 2012 Audi Q3 2.0 TDI S-tronic which I have owned for nearly 4 years. Just recently i have been losing the DAB radio stations. Initially this was intermittent, but is now completely lost. FM works fine as do all the other electrical/electronic devices. I tried restoring factory radio settings on the MMI set up, but that made no difference. Any help would be appreciated as I want to sell and buy a newer example. Sorry if this has come up before but couldn't trace anything when I did a search.

Many thanks for the advice. I took the car to my local Audi specialist. He ran a diagnostic and came up with the antenna lead to the amplifier. It sits alongside the wiring loom to the tailgate apparently. They need to remove the lead and measure it to ensure they get the correct one and reinstall. Going in next week, so fingers crossed.🤑

I had the aerial lead replaced in late July and DAB now works perfectly. Unfortunately I got the bill last week. The aerial lead cost £188 + vat and with labour the total was £428! 😩
