    Long time since I've been here! I see a number of old faces around, which is always good to see.

    The reception on my W168 is very poor. I think it is because the aerial amplifier is not working. I am not sure but think this could be due to there not being any power going to the radio.

    I have intentionally set off the alarm. No siren goes off. The lights flash.
    I have listened to the radio and unplugged the power from the aerial amplifier, it made no difference whether listening to a good reception or poor reception station.

    I am not sure which fuse it is. I have checked all the fuses and they all seemed fine.

    The horn does work when pressed on the steering wheel.

    What else could it be?
