Check and see some radios need a extra ground not just to the frame of the radio. and some antennas have different size plugs make sure it is tight and making contact both places the little one in the middle and the bigger outer one.

Start by removing the colored strip which is over the radio display.
(best way is to open the glove box and get underneither it, the right end kind of hooks in at an angle while the left end locks in straight. so work your way to the left first and then the right)

once that is removed, you shuold see four (4) standard screws, remove and save them.
You must remove the top air vent piece, just tip up and pull forward gently.
You will have to disconnect the hazard switch plug also

the stereo set can now be removed by pulling forward gently.
Only two cables are connected to the unit, one can be pulled out, the other must be unclipped.

At this point the WHOLE UNIT including DISPLAY should come out of the console.

On mine, there were directions on how to install and uninstall the CD/MP3 player and if you flip it over you can see where the MINIDisc would go (if you don't have one)

That's it!

SOURCE: No radio reception on 2003 Audi A-4 Cabriolet Convertible

After reviewing the feedback on these postings I identified the problem them took it to my local car stereo shop. I showed them how by raising and lowering the trunk the signal went in and out. They fixed it for $60 by splicing in some new coax cable. It works great.

SOURCE: 19" FACTORY TOYO TIRES SHREDDING

Toyo®, Exclusive Tire of 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Limited Grade
September 20, 2007– CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation announced today that the Toyo® Open Country® A20 is the exclusive tire of Toyota’s all-new 2008 Highlander Hybrid, Limited grade. In addition, the Open Country® A20 is original equipment on several other models of the 2008 Toyota Highlander, both hybrid and gas.

The Open Country A20 achieved exceptional low rolling resistance performance making it ideal for the hybrid model. The tires were also specifically designed to reduce noise and improve both wet and dry braking for added safety.

Based on the model and trim level of the Highlander, the Open Country A20 comes in two sizes: P245/65R17 105S and P245/55R19 103S.

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of replacement tires for high performance cars, luxury vehicles, light trucks and SUVs as well as tires for commercial trucks, buses and off-road and construction applications.


I'm surprised if it's so good at braking that it has not ripped my entire tire tread off as technicians say the treat is separating well before its time!

Just had a new windshield installed in my 2007 toyota tacoma and now i have no radio reception could one have to do with the other


Yes- If you originally had the antenna in the windshield like many 1970's era GM cars and trucks, yor new windshield may not have it, or if it does- it may not have been connected. There should also be a trimmer adjustment on the side or bottom of the radio to trim the new antenna for best reception. It may also be located where you can adjust it fromthe front if there is an access hole to a screw that does not appear to be attached to the outside case of the radio. Turning it slightly should make noise if it does not immediately improve reception..

If you have an antenna mast, it may be the mast shifted, in which case it is a matter of putting the mast int he original location and tightening the mouting nut down so a good ground is achieved with the fender. You can tell if you turn on the radio and then pull the mast down and let go- you will hear the radio go in and out of reception.

My Saturn factory AM/FM radio on my 1996 SL gets some FM reception but no AM reception. I am trying to determine whether I need to repair the antenna or the radio.


You will need to pull the radio out of the dash and make sure the antenna is still pluged into the unit. If the antenna is in the windshield make sure the glass is not broken, and the wire broken. If there is an external antenn, you need to check the connection at the bottom of the antenna, and the wire is good between the antenna and the radio. Has any new items been mounted recently, the screws could have damaged the coax.

Unless you can find a local mechanic who is very familiar with this problem, it is most likely you will need to take this to a Chrysler dealer, as it is either a computer problem or an electronic problem. God bless your efforts.

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.

2008 Chrysler T&C LX - At 60mph+ I get a constant squealing noise from the dash. Turning off the AC does not affect it.


It is probably a hole in your windshield seal if in only occurs above 60mph. to confirm this next time it happens turn your ac and fan and radio off,
then pen the drivers window a crack to see if there is a change in Pitch

Problems with static


We doubt there is anything wrong with the wiring in your radio. It has been our experience that after market window tint can cause static and poor reception in vehicles that have radio antennas built into the rear window. Removing the tint improves the radio reception but still leaves something to be desired, especially on AM.
