It's possible that being a factory amp, the head unit may not control it. It might be controlled by the bcm or something....

The factory amp isn't that bad really, I just got one of those Aeropro adapters when I put my Alpine unit in my WK.

There are actually two antennas in the car, the one you can see and another one in the rear window I think. It's supposed to help reception. I believe you can just buy adapters to connect the two plugs into one input.
Hi mate so you got the plug and play and no issues mate.

I've been trying to find one of these adaptors to run the two antenna for years, never found one unfortunately. If anyone has seen one for sale, please let me know.
