Question about 1999 Audi A4

Problem with my Radio Tuner!

Alright, This isn't a mechanical problem, but more of an inconvenience really, nothing that will hinder my car's performance.

But, anyway, my problem is dealing with the radio. The radio has the 6 CD changer and stock Bose speakers option(in case this has something to do with my problem).
The radio itself works fine, BUT i can only get a limited number of stations. I can't manually tune my radio for specific stations in my area, even though the seek should pick them up, because they have crystal clear reception, and it's quite annoying.
do i need to recode my radio to pick up these other stations? or is there another button i need to press before doing a manual tuning? or is there something else i need to do?
If nothing else works, im probably going to end up buying a in-dash stereo kit.
If someone else has or has had this problem, let me know on how i would go about fixing it.

Thanks!

YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE ANTENNA. THERE ARE 4 ANTENNAS IN THE REAR WINDOW FOR BOTH AM AND FM SIGNALS. THERE IS AND UNIT CALLED A DIVERSITY BOX UNDER THE REAR HAT SHELF THE CONNECTS THEM ALL AND DECIDES WHAT ANTENNA IS GETTING THE BEST SIGNAL. THAT UNIT MAY BE FAULTY. BEST TO HAVE IT CHECKED BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE SYSTEM OR TAKE IT TO A DEALER. MIGHT BE CHEAPER THAN BUYING A NEW AFTERMARKET RADIO.

I ran off the road into a field to avoid hitting a deer. It was abrupt & bumpy. Now my front passenger tire is bent inward and steering wheel must be sideways for the truck to run straight. What are...


If the tire on the rim is still holding air and the rim isn't obviously bent it should be alright if you go nice and slow but would still be a better idea to put a spare on it if you got it. Slamming off the road though it's possible you just threw it out of alignment which would be great, but then again you could have bent part of your steering linkage.

My 2008 ford focus sirius radio stopped working. sirius tried to reprogram, but it didn't work


Did Sirius resend a signal? If it is displaying their number it is likely that your subscription needs to be updated. The fact that it displays their info means it is likely receiving a signal. If it said "no tuner" or nothing at all, it would likely be the tuner. You can resend a signal online here:

If that does not work, replacement kits are available here:

I have a 2008 Highlander. The radio tuner and volume knobs are broken. Looking for a source to replace them. Can you help.


I would call some auto salvage yards first. If no luck there I would go to a Radio Shack or an Ace hardware store. Last resort would be the dealer or a used car lot mechanic.

I have a 2008 BMW X3 that has an annoying crackeling noise from the radio. It doesn't happen with the CD player only the radio. It is always present but most notable when a softer song is playing. When I...


Thats a very unprofessional attitude from a BMW dealer.The least they could have done was to try on your X3 a radio from another X3 and that way eliminate or not,if it your radio is faulty.I work at a Bmw dealer and thats the thing we would do.An issue like yours would not come up on the computer!If they checked all the aerial wiring from the radio to aerial and its ok,then its a faulty radio FM tuner.
Is your car still under warranty.Either way report the dealer to Bmw NA.

2003 honda accord. will not start, can hear starter turning regularly, but will not catch and turn over. Battery is strong. lights come on, horn blows radio works. automatic not manual.


If your starter is turning, but not engaging, your start is more than likely stuck. Replace your starter and you should be alright. You could try tapping on the starter with a hammer to try and dislodge the starter gear, but this doesn't always work, and is very inconvenient.

Our truck suddenly died, it'll turn over but it seems like there is no compression.


this could really be anything, broken timing chain, faulty fuel pump, faulty ignition system, it will need to go to a mechanice to be checked with a code reader to find the fault, most mechanics won't charge to have a look, its just very inconvenient for you to tow, perhaps consider a mobile mechanic. sorry couldn't be any more help. Good luck

Where in the hell does the antenna wire plug into on a 1990 chevy k1500 with factory radio, did not see a place on equalizer or radio itself.


In most cases the antenna plug directly into the back of the radio. But GM came up with this crazy 3 piece stereo system. You have the display/selector, the tape deck/EQ, and the tuner. The antenna will be pluged into the tuner which is buried deep into the dash above the acceleator slightly to the right. I have installed close to 100 stereos and this threw me for a loop. Follow the tape deck/eq wiring harness to find it. Happy hunting.

Problem with my Radio


mine used to do the exact same thing. it probably has to do with the singla strength. i just tuned in manually, then i just got an aftermarket stereo, but it does the same thing. it doesnt pick up every single station there is, clear or not clear.

Olds Cutlass factory radio/cassette, radio doesn't work.


When you say tried different radio and it didn't work, does this mean the tuner acts like it is functioning, but you hear nothing out of the speakers?

If so, this stinks of a bad ANTENNA...

Converting built in infinity radio tuner to get european stations


Hi Barak, I have not seen an easy adjustment on any car stereo for converting the frequencies. The Crossfire stereo is manufactured by Becker. Try Becker of North America in Upper Saddle River NJ.
