Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

Open Question

Poor reception on 2001 Nissan Altima

Installed brand new Sony radio (old one died). Antenna connections at radio and at rear windshield antenna have been checked and are solid. Suspect powered Clarion antenna amplifier (model# 1089 I) is the problem. Does it have a separate fuse? If so, where is it located? Unit has 3 wires, one to the antenna and two unshielded wires disappearing above the head liner. I assume one is 12v and the other the RF signal with the ground being made through the mounting bolt. Where do these wires go and how do they get there and where do they finally wind up? If amp is bad, who carries replacements/substitutes besides the dealer?

Try radio shack, or stereo sales/installation place for ready to go plug adapter. For a few bucks, it saves headaches, and butchering the wiring in case you want to re-install old one later when trading in or selling the car.

The gears are going out in the motor. If the antenna goes up and down, then the gears have corrosion. If it does not move....then the gears are toasted or the antenna cable inside the housing is broken.

frajogag: First off, be aware that these bolts are "torque to yield" bolts (streach bolts). What this means is that instead of torqueing the head bolts to a specific torque specification, they are torqued down to a set spec and then tightened by rotating the bolts a certain angle, like 90 degrees. and all of them are turned the same amount.
This means that the shanks of the bolts must be checked to make sure they are not too thin (or the bolt has already stretched beyond limits and is prone to snap if used)
Here is how you check the bolts. Measure the bolt using a micrometer, at the base, or within the first 13mm from the end where it threads in. Then go to about 10mm before the threads end heading toward the top of the bolt. There should not be more than a 0.23mm (.0091 inch) or less difference or the bolt should be discarded.
Torque the bolts down to 98.1Nm ( 72.ft lb)
Looking at the head from the side, so you are looking at the full length from side to side, I will number the head bolts in this fashion.
#1 & 2 are directly in front of you and in the center of the cylinder head crossing it width wise.
#3&4 are to the left of #1&2, / #5&6 are to the right of #1&2
#7&8 are to the left of #3&4 / #9$10 are to the right of #5&6
Now, you have the sequence.
After the initial pull, back off all the bolts in the same sequence and then retorque them to 36 Nm ( 28 ft lb)
Using a torque angle wrench or having the ability to accurately judge turning angles. Rotate (clockwise) to a 75 degree angle. do this to all the bolts using the sequence I had provided.
Rotate the bolts (clockwise) 75 degrees again on all bolts in the same sequence. The proceedure is complete!

I disconnected battery and antenna for 2003 acura tl but code wont take


on the TL - 5 digit code for the radio; 4 for navi; numbers are typically on a sticker on the side of the glovebox (nearest radio) or rear truck arm (great security acura?). Need to unplug the antenna and then put in the code, reconnect the antenna and your back in business. search the net to learn how to access the back of the radio. typically needed after power is lost to the vehicle, new battery installed, etc.

Just gota new radio installed in my car & the reception isn't that good, where should I go first for answers?


you can try getting a better antenna other than that check the connection on the back of the radio for the antenna, the new radios do not have an adjustable antenna trim like the old ones used to.

Just had a new windshield installed in my 2007 toyota tacoma and now i have no radio reception could one have to do with the other


Yes- If you originally had the antenna in the windshield like many 1970's era GM cars and trucks, yor new windshield may not have it, or if it does- it may not have been connected. There should also be a trimmer adjustment on the side or bottom of the radio to trim the new antenna for best reception. It may also be located where you can adjust it fromthe front if there is an access hole to a screw that does not appear to be attached to the outside case of the radio. Turning it slightly should make noise if it does not immediately improve reception..

If you have an antenna mast, it may be the mast shifted, in which case it is a matter of putting the mast int he original location and tightening the mouting nut down so a good ground is achieved with the fender. You can tell if you turn on the radio and then pull the mast down and let go- you will hear the radio go in and out of reception.

My Saturn factory AM/FM radio on my 1996 SL gets some FM reception but no AM reception. I am trying to determine whether I need to repair the antenna or the radio.


You will need to pull the radio out of the dash and make sure the antenna is still pluged into the unit. If the antenna is in the windshield make sure the glass is not broken, and the wire broken. If there is an external antenn, you need to check the connection at the bottom of the antenna, and the wire is good between the antenna and the radio. Has any new items been mounted recently, the screws could have damaged the coax.

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX coupe. Installed aftermarket radio cd player and the cd works but the radio does not. The issue is not with the new unit as the previous player's radio would not work either....


If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power
to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window,
an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the
grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will
have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did
not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other
than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.

How do you change the atenna for a honda civic LX


Hi:
The antenna is held down on the roof by 2 or 3 screws, and the antenna wire runs down the inside of the driver's side of the windshield pillar and comes out down by the fusebox, approx by the drivers knee area. When I changed mine, I took the lower plastic from the bottom of the driver's side dash off, so I could see what I was doing. It was only a few screws to get it off. Once I had the antenna lead loose from the back of my radio deck, I tied a piece of string to the end, then taped it in place, then pulled the old antenna out of the roof, pulling the string up with it. I attached the string to my new antenna, and used the string to pull it back down thru the windshield pillar. Fasten down the screws, connect it back to your radio, and you are good to go!

My AM/FM Radio in my 2006 Ford Crown Vic does not receive a signal. I have power, but no signal, I've been told the wire has likely come loose in the trunk area. Where would the wire for the antenna be...


Your antenna is built into the rear window. You should be able to see the connection in the upper part of the trunk under the back window. If it isn't loose there, I suspect your antenna wire has come loose from the rear of your radio, or else the antenna wire is damaged somewhere in between the radio and the rear window. You'll have to pull it out and inspect it.

The antenna is a fiber element that resembles the defroster in the rear of the car on the top of the glass, a zigzag pattern usually. there is no serviceable part to this. the wire runs from the front of the car dash, to the rear window
