ok so i got a astra, 1999, 1.6, club today. The radio has been changed to some JVC one which worked fine, however it wasn't installed properly and stuck out of the dash board. So me and my mate decided to try and put it in properly and we managed to lose the aerial adaptor inside the dashboard , but then we found another adaptor in the glove box. Do you think this other adaptor could be faulty? Could a faulty aerial adaptor stop the radio from working? Weird thing is the time and outside temp display doesn't work anymore either. So im thinking we have dislodged some connections behind the dash.
If this helps, this is what the adaptors look like. http://www.smartmods.co.uk/shop_large/img_148.jpg
Is the car aerial needed to complete a circuit or something? Sorry if that sounds dumb i have no idea how car radio's work lol.
Thanks for your help
