Poor AM car stereo reception with new DP AudioVideo player

I got for Christmas a new car stereo: DP AudioVideo model DP432. With the old stock radio, the AM reception was just fine. Now with the new system, only the FM comes in good. The antenna is grounded just fine. Any suggestions?

I thought about not using the antenna in the back window and instead, slide another telescoping antenna in the space under the dash.

The car is a 2002 Altima.

AM.... what the heck is AM??? LOL

Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.

I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.

With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?

Can I install a Pioneer Avic Z1 into a 2002 gmc jimmy?if so is there a dash kit and wiring harness available?


Yes, that is the best way to go. Most local automotive stereo stores sell an installation kit that has a surround that the new stereo mounts in to and fits the space of the stock stereo, and also comes with a wiring harness that wires the new stereo to a plug that fits tthe car's stock radio connector.

Pioneer Avic D3 has poor fm reception when the car is on. It works fine when the car is off. Any ideas?


Your power antenna wire maybe hooked up to ignition. So when you turn off the car no more voltage is going to your antenna wire so your power antenna goes down causing a poor reception. You must hook up the blue wire on the radio harness to the power antenna wire.

I'm trying to install a radio in my 1993 toyota tercel and the wiring does not match the color code for the wires to the new radio


they make an adaptor kit, sold at radio shack-walmart- etc. that adapts a particular stereo to a particular model car. this will solve the problem.
without it you need wiring diagrams for both the car and the stereo or it can be a real pain.

Poor radio reception with Jensen VM9512 in 2001 Nissan Altima


If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.

if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..

hope this helps

Poor radio reception


you wanna boast up the radio signal?? There are ant. boasters around, But if your far away from a radio station your radio cant make that weak signal any higher in amplitude. All you would be amplifying is noise or static. Sorry
