Radio static


Check your antenna. If the mast is not extended, your reception will be limited. try an AM station, usually a local AM station will still come in even with the mast down. Have you tried playing a CD (if equipped) ? If that plays well, you've confirmed lack of reception as the problem. If the mast is extended and you still do not have reception, the antenna plug my have come out of the back of the radio. The requires removing the radio to check.

My radio only works for a short distance then goes staticky, also can't set the time


the operator guide in the glove box , covers time set.
all radios do that.
and if not normal, the antenna is broken or fell off the rear of radio.

if got static switch to FM ,
many AM stations, broadcase to am and fm same content.
so use FM. its static free. (by design) but does fade sooner.
you can in fact hear AM station 12,000 miles away it night
called super stations, 50,000 watt stations. ive done this many time.

did you try another car, in same spot , and same station?
are you in under ground parking?

Suzuki car radio code


1: too far from station.?
2: antenna not fully extended or auto extend antenna is dead.
3: noise, AM is subject to huge noise. FM was invented to end that.
4: near fluorescent lights. (you never said where you are)?
in the garage, down town, or on top of Pikes peak. location is everything. so is the station ID, and your location, (distance)
5: in a lightening storm?

try any hand held battery powered radio ,on AM, is it noisy too.
bingo, its real.

I can receive FM stations properly. I cannot receive AM stations at all. Only a static sound. I disconnected the AM antenna leads and used an Ohm Meter. The meter read full continuity when I touched...


you may be in an area where am stations don't come in,, am uses straight lines of frequency where FM uses a modulated signal, which travels much farther, I bought a antenna signal booster from radio shack for a few dollars , and was able to get the stations, some pretty static filled though, but the more local ones came in ok, another thing to check is that the unit is plugged into a grounded receptacle ,

The static level is so high I am unable to hear the radio.


Under menu, select FM frequency. Try using different frequency. A nearby FM station could be bleeding its signal onto the FM frequency your unit is using by default.

Just bought a car and it had hardwired sirius radio already installed. I called and activated it with Sirius radio and tried to get assistance from them on how to get it to work. They gave me instruction...


The "hard wired" version that you speak of apparently only refers to the power supply.Do you have a seperate display for the Sirius unit? Now, you failed to mention the type of radio (factory or aftermarket); so, if you have to use an "empty radio station" then you have an FM modulator. This modulator could wired or wireless. The wired version interrupts the vehicle antenna wire and the station on said modulator is usually preset to either 88.1, 88.3,88.7, or 89.1. There is no need to power this modulator up, it comes on when then Sirius comes on. One way to check for power is to turn on the Sirius unit and tune your radio to an occupied Fm station. Wait a few seconds and listen to the reception. Turn off the Sirius unit, the reception should improve for the occupied station. If it is a wireless FM modulator it also has preset stations that you can change but, extending the wieless antenna will greatly improve your reception of the Sirius stations.

No radio reception in office.


most portables have a very weak FM receiver, and a building interior tends to block a good deal of signals. your best bet is an old fashioned unit with a large retractable antenna.

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
