Radio Signal Diagnosis
#1
The radio on my new to me Berlingo 2002 didn't work, the CD did..

I pulled the unit (see head unit manufacturers instructions) and removed the aeriel plug. It's the single 6mm black lead. You will see that in the back of the unit there is now a 6mm hole at the bottom of which is a 1.5mm hole for the pin on the plug you just removed. Stick a bit of insulated wire down that hole and hang it out of the window. The radio will now work. If it doesn't then this won't help

You have now diagnosed that the fault lies with the aeriel. Assuming the aeriel on the roof is secure and in good condition it is likely that the connector for the aeriel lead at the head unit end is broken. Cut it off and fit a new one. The part you need is

Aerial Antenna Male Plug DIN 41585 

You will need to solder it for best results. Plenty of vids out there on that. Good luck hope this helps somebody.
