Get your hands on another am antenna....any one will do and attach it to your radio. If that clears it up replace the wire and antenna. If that does not then move to the radio as the suspect. The other thing I need to ask is how long have you had the car and has the AM worked on this before?

    I am original owner, and sadly cannot answer that. I went to junk yard yesterday but all antennas broken. On the back of my radio there is a vacant screw hole. Should a ground wire be attached there?

SOURCE: need to replace the starter on a 1994 Geo Prizm

starters are actually pretty easy. usually just 2 or 3 bolts holding it on. Just disconnect the battery first. Remove the bolts and the starter and then installation is reversal of removal.
Hope this helps,
Lee

SOURCE: 1990 geo prizm brake lights only work when car is off

Some vehicles only allow the brake lights to work when the ignition is turned on and control this via a relay which may have failed so the function is reversed allowing them to work only with the ignition off. Relays can 'weld' their contacts together causing them to become non-operational.Check in the central (if so equipped) fuse/relay box; if you are lucky the cover will have a diagram of the fuses and relays.If so, locate the relay for brakes, check the part number on it, exchange it with the same part number from a different function and try (while parked) to see if this has cured the problem by turning the ignition on, tapping the brake pedal to see if they now respond.If so, the original brake relay is bad.

Thr radio in my 1994 Geo Prizm plays A.M. stations but all FM stations are just static. Is there a seperate antenna for FM ?


Yes Most modern radios have a built in antenna for am. so the one on the outside of your car is the fm. Sound like either the cable to the radio is broken or has become disconnected. You should be able to pull the radio out far enough to see the cable, it's the big black on, and determine whats up.

Fm works but no am. i tried connecting an alpine stereo but still fm works but no am


This problem will only deal with the antenna cable correctly connected behind the unit and up to the exterior roof antenna. Any break in the harness may cause this effect. In early VW's when the antenna was located on the front left fender, owners were complaining of poor reception and static interference from the ignition coil near by. Besides hearing your AM station you also hear electrical noise which changes pitch as you increase the engine speed while keeping FM unaffected. The solution was insulation and relocating the antenna at the farthest part of the vehicle, rear roof. Make sure you have the the right connector for your unit to make a perfect connection.

Stereo....


There is no easy inexpensive way to hard wire an MP3 player into a factory stereo from 1994.

But there are 3 possible solutions and the first 2 should be less than $50.00

1. Use an FM transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack on the MP3 player, you tune the existing radio to the transmitter frequency.
2. If it is a cassette deck there are cassette adapters also, uses direct contact with the heads on the cassette deck to play the MP3 -- getting hard to find these.
3. Have a shop put an FM Modulator in the antenna line that has a plug that will fit the headphone jack of the MP3 player. Most expensive of the 3 solutions but will have the best sound of the 3.
