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.

Usually a small hole in the back of the radio is where you can plug in the antenna.. this is a standard of all car radios. nothing else....it is there....

first of all, is your radio factory or aftermarket? If its factory the you probably have a bad ground or a short in the radio power to antenna. If its after market, then the remote antenna wire is hooked up wrong. Check to make sure the antenna wire is hooked up to the antenna. Good luck

Best buy installed radio & speakers bad reception told by installer factory wired wrong true or false can i get new harness & instructions where & price


Best Buy has a pretty good reputation for installing aftermarket radios and they generally use a new harness connected to the old harness to make it work right.

I would try to have the reception issue fixed by Best Buy before the warranty runs out.

How long ago did you have it worked on?

I'm sure they will make it right if you take it back.

Even, if it requires changing out the radio.

Have them check that the antenna is properly connected to the back of the radio.
