Yes it does but in most cases, you need to at least partially remove radio to do it. Booster probably came with instructions. Read & follow them. Unless your'e experienced in this stuff, do NOT cut antenna wire & attempt a splice.

Why will my Xm radio work but the fm radio won't?


Troubleshooting the problem may depend on which of several radio options is installed in your vehicle. However, the most probable cause is the antenna. Two different antennas are involved here - one for XM (satellite), one for FM (terrestrial - window type). To start, I would check the FM antenna connections at the window and the radio and the cable between them. If that isn't the problem, the radio is probably faulty.

XM radio keeps going out


Sounds like an antenna short. Check the routing of the antenna, or better yet, just purchase a new antenna.

I went to a car wash yesterday and now the radio in my 1998 Acura CL has lots of static on it. What is the solution?


There is a chance your antenna is loose. Try to tighten it and see if that helps. It might need adjusted

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.

XM radio ''NOT READY'' message


I have had this problem at least a half-dozen times, and the simplest solution is to pull the 2 fuses labeled 'audio 1' and 'audio 2.' It resets the radio, but it will work for a while after that (until I have to do it again). Had the xm unit replaced 3 times, new antenna installed, replaced the antenna connection wire - it always dies within a month.

2003 santa fe radio not working


if you are getting static, you need to replace the antenna. you can also add an antenna booster.... but chech the connection of the antenna inside the radio to make sure it is still connected.... if you have the origional radio for the car connect that back up and plug the antenna in on it and see if you get the tunes, if you do then it is a wire problem in the new radio with the antenna wire itself....hope this helps you out

Wheres the antenna?


Hi i'm Ryan, the antenna should be located in the rear window (glass-integrated FM diversity antenna) It should plug into the back of the radio, not sure if you can use that location instead.

You have to pull the radio out of the dash, the antenna socket is on the back of the radio. You cannot see or get to the back of the radio whilst it is still bolted to the instrument panel.
