There were 17 entertainment systems used in the 2005 Audi. It is possible that the aftermarket antenna was connected directly to the radio, bypassing the Audi antenna modules.

    Thank you. As a matter of fact, it is connected directly to the radio. Should I move it to where the booster is inside the lid of the trunk?

Check to be sure the antenna is firmly plugged into the back of the stereo head unit. You need to pull pull out the head unit, then look for the largest black cable running into the back of the unit- that's the antenna. Be sure it's securely attached.

No AM radio reception in my 2002 Audi A4


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 radio reception on 2003 Audi A-4 Cabriolet Convertible


After reviewing the feedback on these postings I identified the problem them took it to my local car stereo shop. I showed them how by raising and lowering the trunk the signal went in and out. They fixed it for $60 by splicing in some new coax cable. It works great.

The arial is internal, it is a wire, I think it is running on top of the driver door, not sure.

Check the aerial connection at the back of the unit. Also check the wiring to the antenna, look for an intermittent connection.

On many A4 there is also an antenna amplifier, if that is wrong it can also give you troubles.

If you do not find anything wrong then the problem is on internal wiring connecting to the antenna socket, if that is the case the radio must be taken apart and tested by a technician.
