    Sounds like two different problems. Is it an after market radio? If so, some radios have a seperate wire for the display. This is seperate from the constant and switched power. Make sure it is connected. It may also have a in line fuse, check the fuse if it has one.

    I would think if the cable was broken you might get at least some stations (with static) depending on how far away you are from the tower, even then you should have the time display.

    Clarify, does it have a tape player or CD you can test?

Your radio is most likely shot because if your antenna is not hooked up you will still have radio channels and time displace come up on your radio. If your antenna is broke then you will have to repair it to.

Sat nav and radio not working


Good Afternoon Michael

Sounds most likely to be an antenna issue. Most everything going into the radio needs an antenna to be picked up. Sometimes, a station or two might still be heard above the static if they are local and fairly strong signals.

If you can get normal sound from other inputs, like MP3 players or CDs, then the amp and output parts of the unit are fine, and it's an issue of getting an input signal to use.

If you have the tools, pull the stereo head unit from the dash and make sure the antenna input cable(s) are firmly in place. Likewise, depending on location, you can likely get to the base of the external antenna, where the other end of the cable plugs in, and make sure it's in snugly.

lacking the tools - you can talk to your dealer or a local car audio place. They'll likely have the tools, and a check for antenna cable connection would not likely be too expensive or time-intensive.

Good Luck!

Need to replace radio antenna on a 99 isuzu rodeo


I just replaced the antenna on our 02 rodeo. No need to remove radio or anything in dash. This is how I did it.
First you will need access to back of fender, enough room for your hand. Open hood and remove 3 bolts running along top of fender, open passenger door and remove top bolt holding fender. Gently pry top of fender away from vehicle. Place object in gap to hold fender ( I used the head of a rubber mallet). Reach inside fender and disconnect old antenna, follow cable through wall into passenger compartment. Gently pull cable from behind carpet and unplug old antenna from coupler. Connect new antenna to fender ( replacement antenna I ordered was slightly smaller than opening so I had to add washer). Run new antenna cable through wall and plug into coupler. Re-attach fender

Try a new antenna temporarily--just hold the mast base in your hand. Water can enter the antenna cable from outside which shorts it out. Hope this helps!

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

It sounds as if the antenna has become disconnected from the radio. You will have to pull the radio out of the dash and make sure the antenna is still connected there, then check and make sure it is still connected to at the fender well and in between.

Antenna mast broken


    Give these instructions a shot. Might be too generic but might be enough to get you going. Removing Original Antenna
  1. Step 1 Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Step 2 Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Step 3 Gain access to the underside of the area where the antenna is located.
  4. Step 4 Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Step 5 Remove the mast.
  6. Step 6 Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Step 7 Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Step 8 Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Step 9 Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Step 10 Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.
    Installing the New Power Antenna
  11. Step 1 Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  12. Step 2 Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  13. Step 3 Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable. (On some General Motors and Ford cars you may need an adapter to mate the 2 cables together. Car audio retail stores sell such an adapter.)
  14. Step 4 Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  15. Step 5 Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  16. Step 6 Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  17. Step 7 Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  18. Step 8 Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  19. Step 9 Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  20. Step 10 Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  21. Step 11 Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  22. Step 12 Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  23. Step 13 Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  24. Step 14 Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.
