Hi There
I have the same problem with the disc jumping from red to green and the gps symbol permanently red. So I bought and after market GPS antenna that was advertised on ebay and cost me £14 and i fitted it within minutes after resetting the systems eureka GPS turns green and the discs also turns green! So rather than buying the shark fin which can cost you an arm and a leg from renault or from the scrapyard which you don't know the true condition, this will be the cheapest choice. It is mostly 8 out 10 it will be the antenna. But when you do want to buy this after market antenna make sure it is an SMB type connector. I hope this helps.
