I put in a pioneer deck and it works fine. but every time i hit a bump all the speakers quit working. i tried the deck in another car its not the deck. checked and double checked the wireing between the adaptor to the factory wireing harnes and radio and it is not the wireing. Could there posibly be a factory amp with a bad wire or something.

The blue wire from your aftermarket radio that connects remote for a amp has to go to factory harness purple wire there is two purple wire so you need to try either or and it will work i just did one on an 2004 aztek
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.
As for the radio issue I have the same issue. I have learned to deal with it though and there are times when it comes on. Other times I will get out of the jeep and open and close the rear hatch with some pressure and it will start putting out sound. Last summer I rewired all the speakers and put all new speakers in and It worked fine for about 6 months and now its having the same problem. But closing the doors with a good amount of pressure or hitting a bump will usually turn it off or on
check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..
It hard to say, it could be the radio itself not putting out any sound or it could be the external amplifier. assuming the radio work fine, than it will be the external amplifier or visa-versa. the radio out put low frequency sound which we call it pre-amp line which run to and connected to the ext. amperfier, ext. amprefier then amplify the sound to the speakers. if the ext. amplifier if faulty than you will get no sound even though the radio is working properly. hope that make sense..good luck, if you need to replace the stock ext. amplifier, check on ebay for good deal, don't buy it new from a dealer, will cost you arm and a leg. you can also just replace the new entired radio systems (after market) but use the same speakers.
sounds like the cassette adapter has a bad channel, or didn't fully seat into place. Try removing and re inserting, to play the other side of the adapter if the wires will allow it. Then auto reverse the cassette deck to allow a different portion of the cassette head to be used for the signal. Those cassette adapters are poor quality, and put alot of time on the mech.
