I could probaly help you better if you posted a picture of the back but the screws are alway concealed in battery compartments and behind stickers or rubber feet. The rubber feet are usually just pressed in but can easily be re-glued.

Radio frequently just stops broadcasting and eventually comes back on


Peggy, Is the radio actually switching off or do you just loose the radio station. If radio is shutting off, there must be a bad wire/ plug connection, loose plug, or maybe bad ground.
If loosing station, have Arial/antenna connections checked, maybe upgrade to better antenna. Some stations just do not send out a strong signal which can also cause loss of station.

My Jensen MCD 5110 Marine radio acts like the antenna is unplugged. I can't figure out how to remove the radio from it's sleeve to re-plug the antenna jack (if that is the problem)


I don't know much about marine radios. I am a ham radio operator, but they are much the same, if you do not hear any static (with squelch control turned down), then I suspect you are correct about the antenna. It could be the antenna itself, or the coax line to it, or the connection point at the radio or at the antenna. You're stuck without being able to remove it. If you do and find nothing at the radio, you'll need to check the connection at the antenna etc. Good luck.

96 Plymouth Grand Voyager radio works and then stops.


Radios not only need power but antennas. Check the antenna connection into the back of the radio and at the mast. If the rod antenna is loose it could be intermittent. It could also be the bottom clamp that attaches to the sheet metal of the car...if it is corroded or loose the same...

Roady XT "Antenna" problem


one of 3 things, either your antenna is not insight of a skies view to receive the signal, or its wire is broken at the antenna, but if you remove the antenna connection frequently it pulls the center wire out of the connection on the end that fits into the radio when its plugged in push on the conductor at the back of the plug and see if this helps,alos if connection is loose take a safety pin and carefully between the outer plug case ans the ground fingers around the center pin push these in so you get a better ground, and lastly try another substitute antenna, I have re-soldered my connections numerous times to fix this issue, delphi doesn't make a very rugged product, good luck

98 BMW M3 radio has poor or no reception. CD changer and head controls work fine. The car is new to me and I understand that there is an amp or antenna booster that may be the problem.


the usual cause of this is a defective antenna or antenna ground, if it is a power antenna verify a good ground, if ok replace the antenna, also check the coax connector to the back of the radio.

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.

Sangean ATS 808A-replacement aerial antenna


The antenna should be available from Sangean, or C.Crane.

To replace the entire antenna, about 6 screws from the back must be removed, and the back also removed.
Or you could replace it at the antenna's "elbow". However, this is almost impossible to do without loosing the 2 tiny washers. If you do loose the washers, the antenna will work, but will be loose, and not stand up and support itself.
