Question about 2006 Chrysler Pacifica

Open Question

Terrible AM radio reception in Chrysler Pacifica--need booster--?

I have a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica that I love; however, the radio antenna is embedded in the rear passenger way-back window! I am a talk-radio-aholic and when I drive through almost anywhere with anything between the vehicle and the horizon, the signal fades away or gets crossed with Mexican concertina music. Is there something cheap and easy to install (like maybe not installed at all, but just plugged in??) that will help me get AM radio stations??

Yes new gas shocks on the lift gate will fix your problem. I had the same problem on my 2005 Pacifica and when it hit my head- I came up with the solution.

Good Luck,
Ray

SOURCE: i am installing a timing belt on a 2004 chrysler

Click on the following: free, direct Link. It has several Diagrams including the Serpentine Belt Diagram for your 2004 Chysler Pacifica 3.5L DOHC V6. It has the Instructional and Directional Diagrams that will help you.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2004/make/chrysler/model/pacifica/2004_chrysler_pacifica_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench (See Diagram in Link: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

2008 chrysler convertible replaced radio and installed windshield atennea but still having problems with getting reception


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.

Fm radio reception problems


Check to be sure the antenna is firmly plugged into the back of the stereo head unit. You need to pull pull out the head unit, then look for the largest black cable running into the back of the unit- that's the antenna. Be sure it's securely attached.

I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma Double cab and up until a few months ago my radio was working perfectly, but now my reception is terrible. Do you think the antenna has become disconnected underneath the dash...


Your diagnosis sounds about right. Antenna cable is large round cable pushed into rear of radio. Common with bouncing/stiff suspension on trucks.

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.
