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
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 ...
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 alldata.com (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.
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
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
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.
