Antenna is probably in rear glass or rear side glass. Check for microgap and repair with rear window defoster repair kit. use a magnifying glass to find microcrack.

Where is the antenna wire or plug located from radio to external antenna?

Possible failed amplification unit (may be internal to the radio or may be external somewhere in the car, usually in the trunk or under the rear seats)

Where is the antenna wire or plug located on the1993 grand marquis coming from radio to external antenna?

Start by removing the radio, and tracing the antennae connection that connects to the radio...most will use a connection between the radio, and antennae too.

How do you replace a broken car antenna mast

depending where the mast is fitted , either roof or side panel , you will need to remove the trims that are directly below the anntena , then unbolt the fitting and trace the route of the wire to the radio , refitting is the reverse

2007 Mini Cooper convertible, stereo signal got worse and now can't listen to the radio, other functions still work. Have changed aerial and still no change? Any clues??

some sort of bad connection inside the radios socket
or bad coax

check the antenna with an ohm meter
to see if the coax is shorted out
and also that there is continutity between the center pin of the coax radio plug and the antenna

you can demount the radio and stick a bit of wire in as a quick test
if you get the signal then its something coax related
if not its something to do with the front end of the radios reciever circuit
and you need a radio engineer that fixes car radios and cb etc
they will make it work for sure
i could in ten mins flat ...possibly a transistor has failed
or a bad connection as it comes and goes ...

Were is amp located at

get the FSM. its there.
audio amp. (depends on what options, for audio ) so...
and if still stock car, is it?
most are not 1996, folks up grade to DVD MP3 then USB then Ipads.
im online, at (so can you)
the amp schematic shows the antenna plugs in to amp not radio head'
oddly, so see antenna. see wire coax lead in right kick panel
follow that wire, cable and it plugs in to said amp.
easy huh.?
the antenna plugs directly to the radio head
the option audio sys, it plug in to the amp."priemum rad)
but the speaker all wire to the amp, for sure..... so follow them.
the FSM covers location far better than most online sources

02 ford e 450 ambulance every time we key the radio it shuts off

I assume you mean the Engine shuts off when you key the radio. Two possibilities. One is the radio is drawing too much current from it's circuit (which could be improperly connected to a critical wiring circuit instead of an accessory or direct to battery) OR The RF signal is causing severe interference with the engines electronic controller. in either case, see if you have a "low power" setting on the radio. key it up and see if that has the same effect. If all goes well you know your radio is certainly the culprit in either the power or RF side.

Some two way radios are rated to 100 watts, thats a lot of amps of current when you transmit. These radios usually have a main power leads that should be connected to the battery or battery source direct (not spliced into some wiring). IF RF is the Issue, you have a problem with your coax between the radio and the antenna, or the antenna is much too close to the ECM. IF the antenna is mounted on top of the vehicles metal roof, the coax is almost certainly the problem if RF is the issue. look for bare spots or poor connections

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.

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.
