Hi and welcome.

Put any telematics queries in the telematics section and any general technical issues in the main Citroen Forum.

Typical issues are water ingress at the aerial base of the C5 that can corrode the connections and electronics in the base unit, or the aerial lead in general, or a failing tuner.

Hi and welcome.

I had to replace the aerial unit on our old Xsara a few years ago when it failed (water ingress). The same unit is fitted to many cars and I used one from a Peugeot 206 IIRC. Had the correct number of aerial leads (one!) and power supply lead. I didn't have to worry about anything such satnav or phone in those days so if you're not sure make that post in the telematics and put your VIN in there so someone (it'll usually be Marc) can check exactly what aerial unit is fitted and, possibly, what other cars it's fitted to.
