Antenna problems Whenever my radio goes on or off, the antenna has troubles going up or down and makes a lot of noise; I was wondering if there was anyway to open it up in the back and try playing around to make this problem stop.

I have a vm9114 Jensen in dash and I'm getting a lot of static From the radio station I've tried new radios different antennas and still have this problem what could it be


Static in radios especially if the static varies with RPM.s is a sign that there is a sparking action going on in the electrical system. This can generally be traced back to an alternator that has pitted slip rings and dirty brushes.. Normally it can be fixed by reconditioning the alternator or having an accredited auto electrician attach a small capacitor to the alternator ( Bat terminal for the lead ) with the capacitor bolted to an earth point . Seek advice from the electrician and radio fitting shops .

Fix A Honda Accord Antenna


Anyone that has owned an older Honda Accord (1990-1998 or so) has probably had a problem with their radio antenna. My problem was actually there when I bought the car. Whenever I would turn the car off the antenna would retract and when it was all the way in it would make this horrible grinding/clicking noise. Eventually it stopped working all together. As I was looking into this problem I found out that it was a very common problem, but one that had a very easy solution. I would say that almost anyone could preform this antenna fix. If you are having the same problems here is how to fix it:<br>
1) Get a replacement antenna mast. You can find them on Ebay for around $15.

2) Remove the old mast by taking off the chrome nut that hold the antenna onto your fender. You might need a small hammer and a punch to get it off. It should be fairly tight. <br>
3) Pull out the old mast. You have to give it a good tug as the end is in there tight. Check to see if it is all there. If some of it is still stuck in the antenna motor you might need to take it apart to get it all out.<br>
4) Turn the radio on then put the new mast into the hole for the antenna with the teeth facing the rear of the car. Push it as far as it will stopping when it won't go in anymore. You don't want to force it.<br>
5) Have a friend turn off the antenna while you guide the new mast in. If it doesn't go quite in all the way that is fine, it will eventually.<br>
6) Re-install the holding nut. <br>
That's all it takes. You can now enjoy your radio again!

Antenna relay switch


is it original antenna and radio? the antenna runs on a seperate switch oor goes up and down with radio on and off switch? if it is original stereo that is original chances are the antenna is broken and stuck in up position the mast may be purchased at dealership but motor may also be no good or not far behind. Listen at antenna for motor noise when radio is turned off if you hear the motor the plasic that drives it inside is broken.

I have a 1992 chevy that has radio that gets fuzzy noises whenever i go under electrical wires.


Am signals and power transmission wires do not coexist well-that is normal. If you have the same issue with FM signals, check ground wires on you radio and check to see if the antenna is NOT grounded.

1993 T100--Unplug antenna motor


Find access to where the antenna motor is, and visually inspect/trace what kind of electrical connection there is going to it. It may be a simple unplugging of two connectors. I am suspecting that the antenna motor and the radio share the same fuse, as the power from the radio passes thru to the antenna motor when the radio gets turned on. So, can't just pull the fuse. But if there is a fuse JUST for the antenna, then pull it out.

The antenna won't go up or down & motor makes a horrible noise.


mate this problem is easier to solve than you think but it depend s if you are near a place that sells car parts if so just ask them for a new mast and take it home there will be a little crome nut around the arial base undo this and yank the old one out while putting the radio on ,the isides should come out to ,now feed the new one in while turning the radio off the will start to reel the new tail in ,best to have a little helper, the arial will go down and put the crome nut back on problem solved

Unable to hear AM radio Static, Whining noise,


The filter in the radio has gone bad or the antenna connection shield is not grounded properly. Electromagnetic interference is the problem. Difficult to run down. Try another radio to determine if it's simply the internal filter in the radio/audio head. If a different radio eliminates this noise, the problem is in the radio's filter. If the problem is still there, is't most likely in the antenna circuit.

96 Nissan Maxima Radio Antenna


The gears are going out in the motor. If the antenna goes up and down, then the gears have corrosion. If it does not move....then the gears are toasted or the antenna cable inside the housing is broken.
