Hey guys, I recently installed a Blaupunkt head unit in my car..sounds great, everything's fine, but I'm not getting any FM signal. The factory antenna plugs into the back of the stereo, but when I flip the antenna switch on the console, nothing happens.

Is there a power wire for the auto antenna or does it draw its power from the head unit?

The Becker had a little wire plugging in the back, I think it was blue or black, and it was for something, I don't know what, it's currently unplugged, sitting behind the head unit.

Thoughts, suggestions?

The factory antenna plugged right into the aftermarket? Are you sure it is a "right" fit for sure?

Yep, Mercedes used a standard Motorola antenna plug for their power antenna. I guess I'll have to call the dealership.
