Hi, you could try plugging a spare antenna in where the stock one is but it sounds like its toast so call around at junkyards. I bet you could find an exact replacement for real cheap, or maybe even a better upscale version then go to autozone.com for radio removal instructions. you have to set up a free account to get the directions

Radio very noisy, been to 2 dealers and been told 2 different stories both with end result cannot be fixed. Does anyone else have this problem and any diy ideas


by noisy do you mean static, squeal on starting the car or what
if it is static it could be a bad aerial
squeal could be electrical interference from starter motor
dealers do not fix radios so you would be better off taking it to a radio shop ( where radios are installed ) for a qualified opinion and diagnosis
if you take it to several and you get the same opinion then get a quote to fix or replace

Check your alternator, complete electronic failure and stalling is associated with the the car's electronic components not receiving power (much of the car is run by computers that depend on that power) a car with a properly functioning alternator and good connections to and from the alternator should not lose power.

I had a similar problem. Tune your sirius to 184, leaving the radio and the key on with the drivers door open. Let set for 15 minutes. Before you do this procedure, call sirius to tell them to send a boost to your radio. This should take care of your problem. Good luck :)

FM radio intermittent static on '95 volvo 940


Sounds like you either left something loose or lost a piece of shielding. Was there a filter on the antenna that you forgot to put back on?
