Question about 2007 Audi S4 Convertible

3 Answers

Very poor FM radio reception

I have a 2004 Audi A4 convertible. The satellite radio was cutting in and out and my mechanic found a loose wire going from the antenna in the trunk lid to the radio. When he fixed it, that seemed to fix the problem with the satellite radio. Now the FM radio behaves as if there is no antenna - spotty reception that fades in and out. An electronic analysis narrowed the problem to the antenna unit under the trunk lid. Where can I get a used antenna or buy a new one without paying Audi's absured $350 part cost? Thanks Art

How do I hook-up satellite radio


Although it's about $50, this is the best FM transmitter I've found so far. I use it primarily with my MP3Player, but the concept is the same for your satellite radio. It should have a 1/8" audio plug.
Simply plug this little adapter in your cigarette lighter, plug the 1/8" cable between your Satellite radio and the adapter, and tune your radio to the station on the adapter (you can choose another station if there is already something playing on its default station).
This works for me. I tried other brands and they all eaither had poor reception or died within a month or so. This one has been working for me for well over a year now GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Wireless In Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter with...

You can fix it yourself. The stealership wants 1500 for diagnostics and replacement. The harness is about $200 at VW. The cabs have a design defect that Audi will not acknowledge nor repair. Here is how you fix it yourself. You need to open the trunk and look at the rubber wire protector on the left side between the trunk and the lid. See picture posted. You don't have to remove any liners. Pull the rubber out of the top and very gently pull it down as far as you can exposing the antenna wires. Remove the black soft wrap

do you get any stations, even weak stations on the AM band?  If not you have a bad radio and need replacement.  Try having someone hold the antenna as you scan the AM band.

No am reception and poor fm reception - 2004 Kia Sedona


If the antenna is on the front, pop the hood, and locate where the antenna wire connects to the bottom of the antenna and make sure it is connected well. If everything checks out there, you will have to pull the radio from the dash, and look at the back of it. There will be a large black wire by itself connected to the radio. Push it in to make sure its connected as well. That could really be your only problem unless your radio happens to have a fault on the inside which is extremely rare. Hope that helps

2004 audi a4 cabrio radio problem


The aerial is in the boot lid. A wire runs down through a thick corrugated tube. Many bends over time fatigue and break the wire. I simply found the break and repaired the wire , coax wire, repositioned the wire fine! Audi do a replacement around £100 that goes all th way to the radio!

NB handle in boot lining has a hidden screw that must be removed to pop off lining.
