I sorted the poor reception in my ML420CDI last night and went to sort the same on the wife’s 320 today but have run into a bit of a snag.

the connections are very different to mine. The 420 has most of the wires going into the 2x8pin blocks and following some instructions I found online I saw that in 13 was the antenna - supply 12v and hey presto. Unfortunately the 320 only uses 12 out of the 16 pins and u guessed it no pin 13. This loom does however use the 2 x 12pin blocks also. Does anyone know which wire is the antenna??

this is the connection I have in the 320.

I’m selling the 420 now as we have 5 cars + motorhome on the drive, so the 320 will be my winter car now.

As I’m driving it now, I need to get this fixed. Can anyone advise which wire goes to the powered antenna.
