Has anyone had any issues with DRL lights effecting DAB signal. Was fine until I installed bumper DRL inserts.

The DRLs in my grill interfere with the dab signal

Try removing the DAB aerial from internal to a fin ariel so it's further away from the RF frequency and LED

Finally fixed my dab signal/ DRLs Poor signal.
Bought some ferrite cores which I fitted to all wires coming of both DRLs and coming from the battery to the sender module
Been in two days now and would say it’s 80%\90% spot on

Got the same problem with my van ??help
same here! Apparently it’s the cheap Chinese ones that’s the problem That bad I disconnect them,

I fitted ferrite cores to each end of the cables
around 6/7 at each end.
I now have good signal probably 70% of the time not perfect but a cheap fix ish that’s cheaper than buying new DRLs

another alternative is fit a shark fin Aerial Supposed to be really good?
