Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

How to get audio with after market radio in a BMW 328i 97


You need an adapter plug to install an aftermarket radio in that vehicle and possibly an antenna signal booster as well. Otherwise should be plug and play.

My am radio doesnt work , but my fm does and my sirius does, whats wrong


Hi,

May be your car has an in-glass radio antenna. Because these don't perform as well as mast antennas, there's an antenna amplifier built into the vehicle.

When installing a new head unit, it's necessary to connect the "power antenna" wire in the radio harness. This activates the antenna amplifier. If you leave this disconnected, the result is the problem you're describing.

Since the vehicle doesn't have an actual motorized antenna, many installers overlook the power antenna connection in the harness. Also, after-market adapter harnesses use a blue wire for this function, and your Radio head unit has only a blue/white output.

The answer, then, is to check the back of the radio, and make sure the blue/white wire from the Radio deck is connected to the blue wire in the adapter harness.

I'm installing an after market radio on my 82 vette, but i don't know which is the power lead for the power antenna. anyone know?


Usually the blue wire from the stereo is for the remote amp and/or power antenna. If you haven't cut off the stock radio plug, I would check into getting a stereo harness adapter for the stereo. Most auto stereo shops can get them.

I have a pioneer DEH 525-W car sterio harness and colors do not match to that of the Saturn L2 1999. How do I connect this car sterio?


Just go to Best Buy and buy the Saturn L2 1999 Harness . then it will match. Harness cost like 20 bucks.
1st STEP
Things to get from BEST BUYor RADIO SHACK.
1. Black electrical tape
2. (Optional) for quality connection Solder & Solder gun
3. GM (General Motors) Antenna Adapters
4. GM 1999 Car Harness
5. GM Saturn L2 1999 Car Kit

STEP 2 = Match the colors of the car harness you just bought to the harness of the radio (DONT PLUG IT INTO THE CAR YET CAUSE YOU MAY SHORT OUT THE POWER WIRE TO GROUND) twist the same color wires together and then tape them so it wont be exposed to get shorted out and damage your radio or blow fuses in the car.

STEP 3= plug in the complete harness to the radio and the car and also plug in the Antenna adapter to the small antenna jack of the car that converts it to a larger jack so you can plug it in the back of the new pioneer radio that has a larger antenna hole. Now test the radio it should work unless you had blown your radio fuse in the car already which is easy to replace.

STEP 4 Unplug everything from the radio and install your CAR KIT. Then slide your radio sleeve in the rectangular hole all the way flush and use a flat head screw driver and bend the tabs of the sleeve(Radio Cage) so that the sleeve wont move.

STEP 5 make sure your harness & antenna is sticking out of the sleeve so you dont have to fish it out later when you have finished mounting the car kit to your car. Put your car dash back together and you will see only a rectangular hole with a harness and antenna adapter sticking out only.

STEP 6 plug in the harness and antenna back into the radio and slide it in halfway only and test the radio again making sure everything works. If it does then move it all the way in till it locks into place. last snap in the face trim ring into place to cover the silver cage lining.

THERE YOU ARE FINISHED

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.

Connect sirius fm adapter to 2008 honda civic sedan radio


You should use the direct FM box to get the static to go away. You unplug the antenna from the radio, plug the antenna lead from the box into the radio, the antenna line plugs into the box. You will have a mini jack that plugs into your radio or dock.

This way you can switch it on any station to get rid of the static.

You shouldn't need to take the dashboard out to get to the radio. Usually you have to take the trim pieces in front of the radio to get the antenna line out.

Sometime you can reach it from the back of the radio if there is enough clearance to get cak there.
