Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I replaced an aftermarket Radio in my 2004 PT GT with a factory radio bought on-line. Everythings fits and works EXCEPT ... for the FM/AM tuner, only static no reception. Could these be due to something that is linked to car? Dealership says there is no flash update but I see references to matching a code? Any ideas?

This would likely be an antenna issue.

SOURCE: car radio works on am but not fm

Your antennae is somehow disconnected from your radio. It may simply be that it has come loose from the back of the head unit. Or that your antennae mast is missing, or that the cable from the head unit to the mast is severed.

I hope this helps.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

All of a sudden I have NO FM radio reception in my 1999 Jeep


If you still have good strong AM reception, chances are that the FM receiver portion of your radio has failed. Radio repairs are usually as or more expensive than replacing with an aftermarket unit. You can either find a direct factory replacement in a scrapyard or just buy an aftermarket radio (with an adapter harness) and install it.

FM Radio quit working


The only way to get the car out of transport mode is for the dealer to plug the car in to the main diagnostic terminal and download the software to activate all of the control modules. This has to be done to all new cars arriving from the factory.
As your car is a 1994 this reason is highly unlikely for the radio to off stopped working.
It sounds to me that the actual radio tuner has given up, in short you may need a new radio.

1997 Honda Civic EX Keyless entry programming


If you still have the factory radio, there is a way to split the power wire for the factory radio to the aftermarket radio. All you will need are the power and ground for your aftermarket radio, so the rest of the wires should be untouched on the plug for the factory radio. You can simply re-install the radio within the dash and retain the keyless entry as well as restoring your dome light function. Here's a PDF of some instructions. If you did not keep the radio, I would suggest looking online or ins ome junk yards, because it is needed. www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Honda/PDF/466013.pdf
