Hi, just fitted mine and I was instructed not to fit the 12v lead. The radio supplies the 12v through the arial and if you connect the other dedicated 12v line it will interfere and you will get a worse signal reception. I was told however you have to set the radio to send the 12v down the arial by telling it you have a dab arial connected.
Try going to dab then press and hold the button that looks like a magnifying glass, this will update the dab radio channel list. Once complete, press the same button again and choose service, you should have a list of channels to choose from hopefully.

The headunit will not power the antenna, it will require its own 12v ignition source.
