If you live in a weak reception area the only answer is a signal booster or a new aerial on the roof.

Anyone know where the radio antenna is located in a 2008 accord estate. Old type. I have very poor signal at times lately. There are wires in bother side windows as well as the rear.


The aerial is within the rear windscreen heater and there is an aerial amplifier that sends the RF signal to the radio. They can fail.

How do I fix poor radio recption on a 2012 Grand Vitara Urban fitted with Garmin sat nav/digital radio.


Poor reception and low volume of any radio is mostly caused by poor aerial performance.

If the aerial has been eliminated, the unit is properly grounded, has a good current and voltage supply and the loudspeakers and wiring have all been tested and found to be ok then the fault must be inside the radio.

In lots of parts of the world the ambient temperatures in the height of summer and the depths of winter can be outside the operating temperature range of the radio. It is not wise to switch on when these conditions exist as delicate electronics are easily damaged, especially when condensation might have formed on internal circuit boards.
My father once switched on his car radio after the car had been parked in the sun and something inside failed instantly. The repair guy said it was a common problem.

One further thought. Is the alternator overcharging; producing an excessive voltage that could damage the radio or alternatively is a loose supply or ground connection causing a strong surge current and inducing an excessive voltage in a nearby inductance...

Does anyone know where the aerial / antenna is for a Mercedes R320 R Class 2006


I would be asking the service dealer centre this question because some upper priced cars have the aerial in either the windscreen glass or the rear window glass. some aerials are nothing more than a small fiberglass bump on the hood near the rear . Instead of taking the wireless out for repair that is not fixing the problem , take the car to the shop and have the technicians check it in car for a problem

Toyota corolla professional aerial problem, reception on radio


Some tints have metal in them so it might cause you grief but how is the radio when you wind down the windows ?
A power aerial might fix the problem put in the front fender and then run to the radio via a coaxial cable.
However in my car it was the radio that was the cause of the same bad reception and it worked on one channel only.
I have since replaced the radio but this may not be the cause of your problem and you would want to really know if the radio was the cause before incurring an expense of a new car radio.

My kia sorento 2006 limited edition bought as used .The problem is the radio can get so much station .It's antenna located behind rear view mirror on windshield.Please


These types of antenna have poor reception, but should pickup local channels. Check the back of your receiver to make sure the coax is pushed all the way in, and hasn't fallen out. For better reception you could replace the aerial with a mounted aftermarket one. Hope this helps.

When I turn on the rear defrost the radio loses reception. is there a short between the radio antenna and rear defrost


Heated rear windows have a high voltage load, quickest and easy resolve would be to install an inline suppressor to where the aerial plugs into the back of the stereo, available from all car audio store, it will improve your reception also.
