Anybody out there know why the Sat symbol is red even though it knows where the car is and how I might sort this out.

All good responses here. It does seem to be a problem with the aerial or connection.

Did this happen suddenly or after some work on the car or somthing that's been done?

The the cable goes from the shark fin to the CD unit in the glove box. The wire is quite fragile. Has it taken any knocks?
