Radio shach has a solderless antenna plug(but it is a generic type).You will probably have to get this plug and a GM adapter.(GM is the ONLY AUTO MANUFACTURER that doesn't use an antenna plug like the rest.

1996 Toyota Camry. Need to replace broken antenna to get radio reception. Is this replaceable?


You can replace the whole assembly. It could be catered from junk yard, new Toyota parts store or car radio shops. After market antennas are also available which could be put to work after a little effort.

How do I shift the radio antenna off the roof of my Mazda BT50 onto the bullbar?


remove the roof antenna ( unscrew off the mount) buy an aerial for the bumper. run the coaxial cable back to the radio and pull the existing cable out and after fitting a connector on to the end of the new cable plug it into the back of the radio. It will be a lot of trouble to remove the existing cable and roof mount and you will need it at a later date.

Antenna


The only reason to have an electrical wire going to the antenna is for a motor that raises and lowers the antenna. The antenna cable to the radio is the only wire on the antenna.
To replace the antenna, you have to remove it from where it connects onto the car, then lift it out from there. The antenna and the cable cannot be separated, it's all one piece. You pull the cable off of the back of radio, and tie a strong string onto it, because when you lift out the antenna, the cable will be pulled out from under the dash and to wherever the antenna is situated and out that hole. Now tie the string onto (hope you had a long string, lol) the end of the cable on your new antenna and cable, and stick the end of the cable into the antenna mounting hole. Pull the string from under the dash by the radio and you will bring the cable back into the dash and where you can plug it into the old radio and listen to good old music again !

How do you replace an antenae on a 1965 mustang.


Disconnect the cable at the radio. Then unscrew the hardware holding the antenna to the fender. Then pull the antenna base out of the fender, disconnect the cable from the antenna base turning it back and forth with pliers or you can cut it. Do not let the cable fall back into the fender. Now take the cable from the new antenna and duct tape it to new antenna cable. Now inside the car pull on the old cable until the new cable reaches the radio. Plug cable into radio then hook up the hardware on the fender for the new antenna and you're done. Good luck.

There are a couple of little things not working.The radio works but i can't tune in any channels and the rear defrost doesn't work.is it a fuse?


check that the antenna cable is still plugged into the back of the radio and plugged into the bottom of the antenna at the finder to check radio end insert 4 large paper clips into the square holes in the front corners of the stereo this disengages the lock mechanisms slide the radio out and check the connections if electrical antenna check the fuse on the back of the radio that it isn't blown if so replace. loosen the inner fender panel and see if cable still connected to antenna #2 check the fuse for the rear defroster its probably blown if so replace and check for any grounded out hot wires also check the connections at each end of the rear window sometimes they become corroded or unglued from the window, if any of the fine lines that cross the window have been scratched or removed partially this will also render the defroster inoperable

I have a 2001 yukon and i need to replace they entire antenna from the antenna base to the radio I can't figure how to route the new cable.


This will require dash removal, the factory routing for the cable is behind and above the airbox. The easiest way to do it if you have not already pulled the old one out is to attach a piece of 16 guage wire to one end of the factory cable before you pull it out, and then when you pull out the old cable it will in turn pull the 16 guage wire through in its place. At this point attach the new cable to the 16 guage wire and pull the 16 guage wire through which will in turn pull your new cable through. If you have already pulled the old cable out and want to install the new through the same route then you will have to remove the airbox, or you can just reroute the new cable.

My 96 dodge grand caravan has no radio reception


This seems to be a common condition amongst Chrysler vehicles.If it fades in and out while driving then the problem is inside your radio.If it's just lousy all the time I would try tugging lightly on the exposed part of the antenna lead on the pass. side near the heater box. If that clears the problem then you've got to pull the face plate off the radio and possibly the whole cluster and then remove the radio just enough to remove and pinch the radio end antenna receptor.
