Pioneer is a first line brand and should provide you the best signal. If you had good reception previusly and with a new Pioneed unit it's poor, your new Pioneer is defective!. Take it back and demand your warranty, so they should change it or repair it so it should sound perfect. DON'T TRY TO "repair" IT Might lose warranty!

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.

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.

FM/AM reception problem


It should- that splitter is generally used for factory telephone reception and also there is an antenna located in the rear window glass. It will work for radio reception but it will interfer with your phone if you have a phone installed. just make sure you have a good antenna ground. Try removing the grond and sanding the metal so that there is no paint or oxidation that causes higher resistance. This generally affects a.m. reception.

Has anyone had any difficulty with the radio removal and replacement for an 88 camaro irocz28? I purchased this car, then discovered the antenna cables were 'stuffed' underneath the console on the drivers...


i have a 1990 iroc-z and i replaced the radio with an aftermarket radio. when i replaced the factory radio i had to do a little manuvering of the wires because of the alarm i had installed. the antenna wire is supposed to be ran under the PASSENGER side i dont understand why they are under the driver side.

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.
