I would love to see all three replaced but I don't think that will happen. I've been tracking where I have dropouts and time of day (seemed to be worse at night) to give to the dealer. I've never had any problems when the car was at the dealership.

I've had no problems with reception for the past several days now. My appointment has been moved to Thursday but now I'm wondering if I will have anything to show the dealer outside of the 3 pages of notes I've kept on the problem.

I went and talked to the dealer service department today and I still haven't had any more dropouts. I've cancelled my appointment for tomorrow and will wait till the problem reoccurs. I can't explain what happened. The audio dropouts were absolutely horrible at times and now they have been perfect for 4 days. One place where I could always get it to fail at the beginning of 2019 worked perfectly tonight. We will see what happens.

Problems started back up 5 days ago and I'm documenting things again. Today I added extension cables (FAKRA male to female) to each end of the antenna connector and put the connector where I join the extension cables on hte side of the cargo area. This way I don't have to pull down the headliner to change the connector for now. I also have the portable antenna on the roof and run down to the same part of the cargo area. It will be easy to change back/forth between the stock and the portable antenna assuming I can safely stop where I encounter drops. Maybe I can build up more ammunition for the dealer this way.

The problem is my antenna. I had issues at two locations where I stopped today. I connected the portable antenna and the problems cleared and to make sure, I reconnected the shark fin antenna. The problems came back until I reconnected the portable antenna. I am going to talk to the dealer before I make another appointment.
