78 corvette, radio works but no sound, is this a antenna problem?


it could be antennae, you should hear a hiss in the speakers when you turn it up to halfway. if there is no hiss it is possible a broken connection to speakers or a blown fuse for the speakers in the car.

Radio sound low and squeeky, works good in summertime


The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.

It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.

Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.

So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.

If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.

PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.

PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.

AM and Fm radio reception poor. Suspect bad ground since radio and antenna have both been changed. The static sound while on AM increases when I press the accelerator. How do I isolate an intermitt


static sound on AM band can be reduced by the adding of a capacitor to the alternator terminal. Check the coax cable especially the outside braid is connected to the body for earth

AM radio has constant static -- FM is perfect, as is the sound system. The AM radio has no static when engine is not running. Please help


the cause of this is a defective is due to one of the following:
1. Antenna is defective or Antenna coax lead to radio shield ground
2. Antenna ground is dirty or corroded
3. Poor radio chassis ground.

Engine noise in factory installed radio


this problem is most commonly caused by a poor radio ground to the chassis or a poor antenna ground, if those are ok then the radio is at fault

A antenna issue would be all the time, not come and go, this is what I have learned from 100's of repairs, I would suggest you make sure the radio has a good ground to the chassis, a poor ground will cause these kinds of static issues.
