The antenna wont go up because you have a tape in it, you will need to remove the radio,the belt inside may have broke, you will need to take to radio repair shop or replace it.

1990 Buick Reatta Radio turns on but no sound no seeking no scanning no antenna?


There are two fuses
one feeds power to the radio at all times to keep the clock correct.
The other fuse is for power when you turn it on, that one might be blown.

2000 Buick Century. Put in a replacement radio/cd/casset player. Radio works, clock works, but CD and casset do not. The message comes up E 13. What does this e code mean?


if its a radio shack radio, it means E13 means "Tape Communication Error". It is caused by the
microprocessor reading speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast, most other makes mean about the same thing, normally a stuck tape will cause this code to show up, either that or the drive gear that loads and unloads the tape is broken, cracked, or jammed

Radio in 88 lincoln town car doesn't pick up stations but cassette works just fine. Everything is hooked up, harness, speakers wire, ground wire, and antenna. I also checked to make sure that the antenna...


Probably bad antenna wire at the antenna itself. Try plugging a piece of bare wire into the antenna hole (the 1/8" hole in the center) on radio, you should get something, hissing or some sound.

My daughter has a 98 olds 88 i removed the stock stereo and put in a pioneer cd player but i didnt see any wire on the stereo side for the elec. antenna i was wondering how i can wire it to work


Most aftermarket pioneer cd/radio decks have the electrical connector for the antenna that I've seen.

Is this a cd only deck, or does it have radio functions?

Did you use a new harness wiring adapter to get the pioneer radio to work with the old harness?
There should be a color coded set of wires for the power antenna on that. And, then the Pioneer radio should have wires that were labeled for the power antenna.

The lights for the radio,climate,gauges,ect do not come on


Are you referring to the message center??? The message center is the CRT display in the center of the dash that controls your radio, A/C, heat, displays gauges, etc.

If that's not lighting up, you need to replace the unit. I have a spare one if you're interested. It's not perfect. The very bottom of the screen is starting to become very slightly distorted, but I will sell it very cheap. Just bought the entire interior from an '88 Reatta from a junkyard. Message center came with it. Let me know.
