DAB reception

Post by adn1962 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 10:11 am

I know this has been discussed in previous posts, however, my car has gone in today for a fix on this issue.
Toyota technical have a bulletin out to improve/fix DAB reception issue. I found this out after insisting they find a fix for my poor reception.
I’m told the fix is to add an in-line suppressor to aerial cable and update/change DAB module behind dash.
It’s an all-day job. My only concern is introduction of squeaks and rattles - as the dash needs to be removed to access module.
Anyway, I’ll update and let you know if this fixes the very poor DAB reception I get from mine. Kia company car is great with no loss of signal - anywhere.

There is no need for the dash to come out, the DAB module needs a Software update ( done via USB ) and the filter goes on the power supply to the forward facing camera heater unit at the top of the windscreen.

Yeah, they said software was up-to-date, so assumed it was due to my uploading of the latest Sat Nav and software package before it went in.
