have you installed a new radio ? Also the antennas in those are window mounted and arnt that good. They are a powered antenna so if they dont have any power for some reason they will not work.

I just replaced my antena as the missus backed into the shed door and ripped it off. there is a power wire connected to it so I would imagine that when they removed the phone kit they must of either cut the power wire to the radio/antenna or have blown a fuse.
Pull the roof lining off just under the aerial and see if there is power to the wire?

Check behind the head unit and make sure the RF plug is fitted/seated correctly.

You hit the nail on the head. Pulled the roof lining back and found that one of the cables had fallen from the aerial.. All fixed and wife is happy !
