Default poor radio reception

Got a 2006 407 with an RD4, for some reason in the last few weeks when listening to the radio it keeps moving off station and I have to press the station preset button again to get it back.

This happens whatever station I'm listening to, either local or national.

Any ideas?

Mine does the same i think it has to do with the RDS as when the signal gets week it searches for the nearest radio station using that frequency or something like that.

Before you strip the car down its always worth checking to see if there is any aerial work going on and the transmitter is running on reduced power.

You used to be able to get this information on the engineering pages on Ceefax (showing my age now) but I bet there's something on that new fangled replacement the internet.

OK, still got the same problem.

Been doing some research on other areas of web and it looks like the ariel connection could be loose, this seems the most likely.

so question is, how do I check my connection on a 407?

Hi

If its the same as the 307 fakra I think it's called the lead into the head is probably not earthing, as I was fitting an after market head I clipped the terminal off and joined it with tape. Maybe some electrical contact cleaner on the socket and plug would help

I'd guess to check the aerial connections, it would be stereo out, and you don't mention saloon or SW. The SW has a blindingly obvious roof aerial, the saloon is in the rear window.

It is the saloon.

I don't suppose there is a "sticky" on here with instructions on how to pull out the head unit for inspection is there?

I have a 307 but it should be about the same if you look at the right and left of the head unit it should have two small holes each side. If so you need a couple of head pullers Halfords do them and eBay bit like a horse shoe. Insert them in said holes you feel them locate and the head should slide out. Just steady pull so the wiring harness does not pull out.

On mine the aerial had a small clip to press to remove from head unit it's that area I would check first
