Most antennas are located in the windshield or back window... there are booster boxes that boost the signal on its way to your receiver
somtimes they are located hidden in the trunk..and are about the size of a half pack of cigarettes.. see if you can get a schematic to help locate the boosters .
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.
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.
It's most likely the Antenna connection or the FM bands circuit has burned out. The AM Antenna looks like a coil and is actually in the radio in most models, the FM Antenna is the one built into the windshield or sticking up off one of the fenders or somewhere. Check the connections if you have good connections you'll have to replace the Radio.
its has a hole through the fender for the mast to come through and a brace at the motor housing to attach to the inner fender support. a threaded antenna bezel is needed to mount the mast to the fender
Pull off the 3 knobs for the heat controls. You will see a screw under the center knob. Remove it. Look to see if there are any screws near the vent grilles, remove them, if they are there. The whole center fascia then pulls out towards you. Remove the 4 bolts, and the radio is out. Easy.
Most of the New Aftermarket Stereo's now have the Connections for Sirius and XM Built in so you just need the Sat. Install Box. Really Simple. If you want to go a Cheaper Route Just Purchase the XM or Sirius Reciever and Mounting kit for the Dash or Windshield and It will play through an Empty FM Station on the Radio Via the FM Transmitter. Got one in all of my Vehicles and they work Great!
