Problems with stock radio

The AM option only works. I can not switch into FM. I'm wondering if there is any simple fix.

Great solution, go to any pawn shop you can pick up a decent radio for like 20-30 bucks. they are trust worthy most legit pawn shops test radios before they buy them. at wal-mart in the car audio section for 9 bucks they have this unit called a universal wire harness for different models look on the back to make sure it fits your make and model and date range to your car. pick up some 18 gauge red **** clamps to connect your harness, you will need a 20 pack. and some pliers, to connect up to the wires existing to the radio, and plug her in. when i first did this it took me maybe half an hour, cause i didnt knwo what i was doing, but its way more simple than it looks, very step by step. some models of civic you may need to tear apart your entire dashboard to get to the radio but experiance says its usually 2000's and up with this issue.

Why will my radio new 3120 not pick up dab stations at all really tune and all I get is radio 2 have tried for a week to get magic fm thank you


If you have replaced a normal car radio with a DAB then your existing aerial is not suitable due to the required frequency range. You need a DAB aerial for cars. There are many types available, internal or external. Don't bother with converters as this will only give a marginal boost to the fm aerial.

My radio works on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee but the time and station don't light up do I need to replace the radio


any thing can be fixed.! (my job that, before retired)
the question (only) is time and money?
if the labor is more than a new upgraded radio.
why fix old.?
is the dash dimmer working, and all other lights on dash bright
the the radio has issues. (stock) if not stock the wires are bad behind radio. the dial wire.
does the radio work? and dial right, can you see the stations, with a flash light, ? then the back light is burned out.
if VFD display or LCD dead , big time $$$ fix.

on mine , 04 i put a new , media only head end.
am/fm , USB , flashcard, aux in, radio
and have micro usb there, very tiny with 4000 songs.
no more discs and radio head is very tiny.

Margaret, this is free public forum , demands don't play here (free)
and you double posted. why do that.? if you wish to elaborate
try posting below 1st post, as an add.
and for better help? why not post to a BMW forum. (faster)
and no car year, posted or car options listed.

Radio year, model and Car Cell phone options.

no matter.......
the first check on all electronics, is the fuse
most radios have 3 power sources, (to make all features work)
and fuses are on all 3.
have you tried all sources, AM/FM CD, MP3 USB (if opted) .
are all modes dead?
the next check is to try all buttons on the radio. ?
is there a mute button? if car has 4 speaker try the fader lever.
front to rear. left to right , still dead.?
cycle modes. radio, cassette, CD 6 pack , what ever, but do cycle them all as older cars the mode switch can stick.

The RDS is radio station text messages. for song titles.
including time, station identification and programme information.
if this part really works, the RDS part this means the radio is working, but the power amp is dead or muted.
try balance and fader.
many radios (1000s) have fuses in the radio for the speaker amp
that can blow. (shorted speaker wires a prime reason)
or some have in line fuse. and others are in the cars fuse box
which varies by maker or model year.

ok , im looking at the stock radio on level C stock 1991 radio
and even back when (stock to me) the is RADIO muting
so if your car has Cell phone muting bingo that.
and a fuse at rear of radio, (unstated purpose)
guessing,id say there is lamp that glows, CELL mute?


conclusion, no car year stated, or year radio of not origional.

It is an audio broadcasting in which the analogue audio is converted into a digital signal and henceforth transmitted on an assigned channel (usually AM or FM frequency range). It put forward CD class audio on the FM broadcast band and to put forward AM class broadcast band on the AM.

Need radio code for 99 eclipse sn 97c415972 im not about to pay for a code to use a radio that isnt worth 10$ my aftermarket went out and im stuck with this paper weight until i get a code


Hi there, Had a few problems with my car and removed the battery. So I too needed the code. By using the numbers you assign to each radio station is how I entered the code then just hit am/fm. The code I used for my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse is 1571. Good Luck,
