I'm just trying to get the pinout for the DAB module but my offline version has gone haywire and for some reason I can't boot into my XP install, I will get there.

Right as you can see from the following there is no 12v power for the aerial from the DAB module.

[Image: Digital%20Radio%20Receiver%20UBT.jpg]

[Image: A12%20Digital%20Radio%20Receiver%20Contr...%20UBT.jpg]

Having a look at the A11 Radio plug Pin 43 has the remote enabled signal wire on it, so I will see if I can find where that is running to for you.

[Image: A11%20Radio%20X1plug.jpg]
[Image: A11%20Radio%20X1.jpg]



Update on the 7066 Remote enable wire.

I've found where it runs to for the aerial

So there are 2 possbile locations for it It will be Pin12 on both

X403 Tailgate Extension Harness to Body Harness (14 cavities) In the cargo area, near the left tail lamp assembly

[Image: X403%20Tailgate%20Extension%20Harness%20...arness.jpg]

Or

X404 Tailgate Extension Harness to Tailgate Harness (14 cavities) In the luggage compartment, in the tailgate

[Image: X404%20Tailgate%20Extension%20Harness%20...arness.jpg]

My bet would be X403 is the one to go for as it's the easiest to get to, Now I may even a pin for said plug but we need to know it works first.

I'll grab a pic of the plug for you that would help you find it.

I'm going to sound really thick now so please forgive that, but.... What does that mean in simple terms?

Also, your pin out screen shots say UBT on them. Does it make a difference that the ident on my module is U4D?

Right I think I know what's going on here looking at the wiring digram of a sig DAB module.

Although they are same there seems to be one small diffrance with the aerial. But I need to get the Pinout for the aerial and it's not on the offline.

From what I can work out on the Insignia the 12v goes through the aerial port.

So does that go in between the cable from the car and the module? Does the blue wire go into the plug?

Sorry to be a burden!!

Back to square one on this unfortunately. The part arrived today (24hrs from Italy via DHL.... Not bad), Test wired it all in with no change and DAB did not come up.

I tried it in the following areas:

1) From car wiring direct to module. Tried both live and ground
2) Inbetween the wire for the aerial and the car (near the bonnet catch) again both live and ground.

I've attached some images of the fault code and the programming info of the module in case it give you guys any further insight

I'm starting to think this myself. With the help of You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. I've tried different things but it's not having it. I'm assuming that assuming I find a different module (which is not looking good at the moment) then it'll need to be reprogrammed?

Yep I tried about 4 times on Lewis and although I could program the DAB module it wouldn't work until we got a VCI code

There's the issue then. There was no mention of a VCI code when it was 'programmed'. I've emailed Andy and asked him to have a goose at this thread. He said the module should be ok but without a VCI code it won't work.

Are right I thought he did the programing already yes a vci would be needed for sure

Just sent him a message. He's going to request a VCI to finish it off.

I can't really explain what's what as I don't know the system but he said that whilst he's willing to give it a go it doesn't give him an option for a VCI on the retrofit list.

I must admit though, I find him very helpful. I'm sure alot of other people would have not been bothered seeing as they'd already been paid. It's nice to know there's a supportive network in the Astra world.

Iirc it is on the list, if not he just goes to program the DAB module and selects VCI then request which he should know anyway.

MY 10.5 did not need a VCI but anything after that would need one
the DAB is not a common retro fit maybe he has not done one yet that needs one
sure he will sort it out

Well just for home after my third visit to *****. Had the VCI loaded into the car and voila... DAB. To say I'm happy after so long is an understatement.... Rocking down the A38 to Kisstory.... Small things!

I think it was a learning curve for both me and him.

Just out if interest, where it normally shows FM radio text on DAB it says either D1 National or the area that it's locked into the station. Is there an option to make it show the radio text. When I press info the text is there but it's not on the main display. From what I can gather the option for RDS text option is for FM not DAB.

After many months finally got my DAB sorted thanks to Rusty. Very good upgrade on sound quality for the majority of the major stations, espcially with the sub in the back.

What I am very surprised at is the sound quality on some of the lesser known stations.

Who decided it was ok to do music at 64kbit MONO? (KISSTORY) get better quality with the pirate FM stations round here.
