The car is a 9-5 aero with the AS2 pioneer radio.
Not sure if the above happened from the car being stood for some time and needing a new battery, or me disconnecting the Sid. Through a couple of sites and after checking every fuse multiple times, even taking a look at the aerial amplifier in the c pillar it turns out it's a simple fix. If your radio is doing the above and only seeking stations in a 0.2 increments the rds is turned off. To turn it back on turn the radio off, then press and hold both sides of the seek button while turning the radio on. Don't be put off if the Sid says no rds at the bottom it just means the current frequency has no rds signal. Tune to a strong signal station and the Sid should say rds at the bottom, the radio station name should be displayed and you should be able to set the clock through rds by pressing the 2 little buttons.
Hope this helps someone, it was driving me mad.

A good bit of advice.

You may have set it to US settings which use the different frequency interval. You need to reset it to UK first.

The method is in the driver's handbook. I don't have a car with that version of the radio, so I can't check.

I'm pretty sure it was still in you.K. mode as the fm range was 87.5 to 108 and I may be wrong but I'm sure I read the us use a different range. I will try and find the handbook, check and post the procedure in case that's what it was. It's all working fine now though.
Is the us setting something that can be replicated on an AS1 radio as i don't mind what happens to the old 9-5 before it's parted out or scrapped or put on here.

I've accidentally set it to US before, I lost RDS and from memory I also lost MW.
There is a button pressing sequence that does this, then reversed it.
