XF Portfolio DAB reception issue

Simon Jefferson

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

  I have 2015 XF Portfolio and the reception on DAB has gone a bit flaky.  I've seen in the handbook that it advises electronic devices stored near the boot lid can affect this as the aerial in located there, but cannot find anything that looks like an aerial cable within the boot lid.

Any suggestions or advice would be most welcome.  At moment just looking to check connections as wife has habit of slamming it shut.

Is your arial not a shark fin type on the roof ?   The cabling will be in the roof lining.

I assumed it was until I looked in the handbook and it says electronics stored high in the boot can affect reception.  Issue only started after the wife slammed the boot, so I put two and two together.  But as I can't find any cables my maths could be wrong, hence asking here.  Was thinking the shark fin was FM and phone if the DAB was in the boot but now think I'm just confusing the issue.

My XF is a Sportbrake so may be different from yours if you have a saloon.   In addition to the shark  fin, I have inlayed wires in the rear side  windows on both sides of the car.  I presume that is the DAB arial.  Have a look at your rear side windows and see if you can see any inlaid wires on your car.
