No wonder its not working; an internal aerial will simply not work with the low levels that DAB is available in most of the UK. A car body is virtually a Faraday cage and very little of a vhf radio signal will penetrate it. You’ll need and external aerial unless you’re parked below the transmitter.

Internal or simple wire aerials will not even work for DAB in most of the country in a domestic setting let alone a car.
