No AM/FM on new head unit

Hi all,
I wonder if anyone can help with this my SLK 280 ,2009
I have upgraded from Comand NTG 2.5 to a kenwood dmx7017DABS head unit, everything works fine, but i have no am/fm reception
i have connected the Fakra plug to the existing lead, but no signal.
Its like the Ariel amplifier is not on, but i have only 1 spare wire from the original connector which is pin7 on block B that is not connected
Does anyone know if i need to connect this wire ?? if so does this need 12V ?? does the amp need to be woken up??
I have trawled thru the posts but cant find an answer,
