Where is the antenna located? Is the coax in good shape with no kinks or cuts? Does the antenna have a clear view of the sky? the the antenna connector in good shape? Satellite antennas are active (circuitry in the antenna), coax has to be un damaged. Satellite signals are very low power, that is why the antenna must have a clear view of the sky and the coax also un damaged and no kinks,

The antenna is on the roof which is built in by the factory. There are no trees in sight.

My guess is there is an "open" in the antenna lead. Might be right at the cradle/dock, but could be a pinch or break anywhere along the length all the way to the "puck". Look for a loose end, or a damaged spot.
