No DAB after battery replacement

Hi all,
I’ve recently had my battery replaced in my bmax, and since then, I have been unable to get any stations on my DAB. Wondering if anyone has the solution to this problem?

Also, my windows are not operating as they were previous to the battery replacement. They will all come down automatically after pushing the button right down. However, when I try to put the windows up, I have to keep hold of the button until they are fully up (which wasn’t the case before). Any ideas on this one?

yes, you have to retrain the windows after reconnecting the battery, the first time you use them you have to hold the switch until it gets to the right possition.see edit.
I also found that I needed to drive the car (about 20 minutes) for other the other ancillary equipment to start to work properly again

edit, I think this has to be done using the cars internal buttons ;-)

and do you perhaps have to re-scan all the stations?

Thanks for the reply. I managed to get the windows operating again, I appreciate your help with that one.

I’ve tried auto and manual scan on the DAB, but to no avail. I have kept the car running for around 30 minutes, and still no luck.

I tried DAB when I first had the BMax but found the range and reception poor compared to FM. The only advantage I can see is a greater number of stations provided you don't drive too far. I've totally given up on DAB now and normally listen to my local BBC radio station most of the time and BBC 1,2,3&4 along with a USB stick containing my favourite music on longer journeys.
