2004 Jetta Radio

First i lost am (yaes am!) reception, now the fm reception seems to be fading: lots of disturbance and static. anyone else experience the same? is there an easy, cost-effective fix? Same problem started last year...now I can't get anything in....I got a sirus radio for XMAS and that was the only fix I could find...but that fades out every now and again too...I will look under the antenna boot later today. Thanks for the advice...also how the heck do you search in tdiclub I became a member but don't see and area to search to forums.

Poor radio reception 04 Jetta


It may be more of a design flaw oppose to a actual problem. However, you can purchase signal booster that simply plug between the radio and the cars antenna.

Many cars with internal antennas do get this problem from corrosion setting into the ground connection outside the vehicle. The best solution for this is to purchase a new external antanna assembly with a mast and have it installed which will greatly improve your reception far better than when it was new

The AM/FM radio in my 2003 CTS faded to just


This sounds to me like the antenna wire may have become loose in the back of the radio. It just took a few weeks for it to become free. :) If you can maneuver your arm behind it, you should be able to push the connector back into the hole in the back of the radio. But the safest and most practical way to do it is to remove the radio from the dash and plug it in that way. :)

I hope this helps! Let me know if I can be of further assistance. :)

Static on am radio (comes and goes). fm is fine. 99 Subaru Legacy Wagon.


A static on AM is just interference. Similar to operating a mixer when you are watching TV. You would remember the grains in the TV but no audio disturbance because, video is AM transmitted and audio FM transmitted. A static on AM radio could be due to many factors in the car. The ac system, the music system itself or the engine rpm. The solution does not lie in finding out which is creating the noise, it lies in insulation. Check the antenna and change it if needed. That should fix it.

This is a common problem, mostly caused by corrosion to the circuitry underneath the antenna boot. You may need to replace the antenna itself. Pull off your antenna and check for corrosion. The cost is approx. $80 for the part. This is what the problem with my '04 jetta was and the tdiclub website has a good thread on the problem.
