Has anyone had the antenna booster go out on their smart? This would be the power module that is behind the front left quarter panel.

I ask because my reception went to hell about 3 months ago, around the same time my fuel pump went out actually. I know the Smart never had great reception in the first place but now almost every station is fuzzy with an aftermarket head unit. Stations that always gave in without any issue are now fuzzy.

I've done the following, replaced the antenna and the antenna mount with a new one. Ran a larger ground wire from the radio directly to the ground post next to the battery and I've tried a brand new head unit. The only thing left I can think of is the antenna power module and from what I've seen you have to take apart the whole front of the car to get the quarter panel removed.

Before attempting that I was wondering if there were any other suggestions.
