Radio Working But I am not getting any stations

About 3 months ago I started losing AM reception. I thought the AM antenna must have come loose, but as I really don't listen to AM much I didn't worry about it.

Yesterday, all of my FM stations went away. I can't tune in a single radio station. Could this be related to the antenna or do you think the radio is dead?

Does the antenna have a connection back by the CD Navigation cpu?

    The antenna is inside the left rear window. Right above the navigation cpu. There are maybe three or four different cpu's (or what I think are computers) in this section and many different wiring harnesses. Including one that isn't attached to anything.



    This could be for an option that I don't have installed (Sat radio or bluetooth), but I"m not sure. I can't seen any other obvious loose wires in this section.

    After months of putting this off, I took my car into the dealer. They told me I needed a new antenna amp.

    I had them install it, but it still doesn't work (I still don't receive any stations) and now they want to charge me 3-5 hours of labor to remove the wire harness the previous owner had installed into the car for a sub-woofer he must have had. They say they can't troubleshoot it further until the car is back to stock condition.

    They contend that "custom wiring" must be causing problems with the radio, but that doesn't really make sense to me. Everything thing worked fine when I first purchased the car and nothing has changed since.

    Any ideas on other things I might test or things I could look at before taking it back to the dealership for what I think is a serious waste of money?

    Again, any help is appreciated.

Radio has no reception


If your radio won't lock on a station, the the antenna is not connected. It either came loose or someone didn't plug it in... I've seen both.

Your diagnosis sounds about right. Antenna cable is large round cable pushed into rear of radio. Common with bouncing/stiff suspension on trucks.

Does your car have an automatic raising and lowering antenna? If it does check your fuses for it. If not pull your radio out of the dash, and check to make sure that the antenna wire has not become lose or unplugged from the back.

Factory radio reception failing


I would suggest installing what is called a filter capacitor.You can get these at most car audio shops or a electrolytic capacitor rated at 16v or higher and around 30uf (the capacity is not very important) you connect it from the Positive to the Negative on the radio. The idea being a capacitor will allow the A/C current (noise) to pass through to ground without going into the radio and this is usually the cause of poor reception.

Another possible cause could be simple a poor quality antenna, some manufacturers are going cheap on the antennas since most people don't listen to the radio anymore. You could try to screw an antenna off of a different car onto the base on this one and see if that clears up the problem, they are a some-what universal thread.

Radio effected by brakes?


If this happens when the car is still you have voltage interference between brake light voltage & antenna. If this happens from motion check all wire connections, loose antenna wire, to antenna.
