There is not an easy answer for this one. Some troubleshooting needs to be done. I have seen the Rockford Fosgate system in many of the newer Sentra's. Try hooking a known working speaker to a nonworking position. This will tell if it is a speaker problem. If the problem persists, this could be stereo or amplifier.
Terrible reception troubleshooting, a bad antenna will give poor FM and no AM. If both have bad reception, this is a stereo problem. You can remove the stereo from the dash, place a small pick tool or screwdriver into the antenna jack and test reception. If the reception problem clears, this is a antenna problem. I have seen car detailers pull the connector from the rear window antenna and forget to plug it back in too.

Check your connections on the antenna again. Am usually gets decent reception. sounds like your antenna connection isnt fully connected either at the stereo connection or at the actual antenna connection.

Dual xhd6425 Reception Problems


My XHD6425 seems to be very inconsistent... Sometimes I get okay reception, other times I get terrible reception (much worse than my original stock Ford radio). The reception problems are more noticeable on stations that are more than 30 miles away or so.
Perhaps oddest of all, I've sometimes had it bounce back and forth between two stations (like if you are driving and in the middle of nowhere, half way between two stations), even in areas where I know should be getting good reception on one station and had never heard of the other other station before.
If you've figured anything out, please let me know.

Do the jvs have a memory wire. I tryin to put this in a 2001 nissan altima. I need to know if the car have a memory wire for this redio.


You need to hook up the yellow wire from JVC to the yellow/green wire in car(12+ constant memory) and the red wire from JVC to purple from car(switched 12+ volt accessory)

Hope this gets you tuned in!

No sound from speakers


did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!

Bad radio reception


Problem: Radio Reception is bad to non-existant. AM is usually worse than FM.

Reason: Antenna connector has come loose, and needs to be reconnected. This happens when a passenger pushes the carpet toward the firewall and disconnects the plug.

Affected Model Years: 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003

Permanent Fix:

1. First check to make sure the antenna at the back of the radio has not come loose.
2. Remove the plastic cover on the front passenger door threshold held in place by three pressure clips.
3. Peel back the carpet on the front seat passenger floor.
4. Locate the coax antenna cable running along the side.
5. Reconnect the two pieces of antenna that have come loose.
6. Roll the carpet back, and re-install the threshold cover.

Nissan Sentra Radio Antenna


Let me guess - the hole on the factory head unit that is meant for the antenna lead is small-gauge, and the wire in the car is larger? If so, you probably have an adapter plugged onto the factory antenna wire. Both of my Nissans had small antenna wire plugs, and to use the antenna wire with an aftermarket deck, I had to buy a small (4-6" long) adapter that would plug onto my antenna wire and adapt it to a larger size to fit the standard-sized antenna jacks on the aftermarket head units. See if you can grab the end of the antenna and pull it off to reveal the proper-sized hole.

As for the engine swap, it can be done but will require at the least, the engine, ECU, engine bay harness, possibly the chassis harness, possibly the transmission (if the transmissions are different for those two engines), and if the transmissions are different, most likely you'll need axles, some sort of adapter plates for mounting the transmission to the car, and maybe even wheel hubs as well (for receiving the different axles). It's a very big job.
