Question about Durabrand Car CD Player and AM/FM Receiver, DB1200

1 Answer

No antenna connection

My son and I helped one of his buddies install a Nesa aftermarket stereo in his car. All went smoothly but, the OEM antenna connector is smaller than the female fitting on the new radio and won't stay securley connected, there's no am/fm reception whatsoever and their obviously different sizes. Never heard of such a thing - thought they were all a standard size.

Any ideas or adapters that you know of?
Thanks
Bill

Most antenna connections are standard, but as you know there is the occasional odd-ball. without knowing the make/model/year of the car i can't recommend a product, but you should be able to find the adapter you need on crutchfield.com.

just put the car info in and they should be able to show you which products work with your vehicle.

The orange/black wire should be a dimmer, the blue wire should be power antenna, the Blue wire should only be hooked up if your antenna goes up when you turn the car on, also goes down when car is off. OR you could possibly have an aftermarket antenna that needs power to boost signal. There should be a thick black wire that is pluged in somewhere on the back of your radio.bassmekanic.gif

I have a 1988 ford t bird i bought the wiring kit and installed the after-market stereo and everything works expect the sound. and i ve tried other stereos and double checked the wiring and still no audio.


Check under the passenger's seat for a factory amp. If the blue wire on the aftermarket head unit (accessory/antenna) supply isn't hooked into the power line for the factory amp. You'll get nada. It's usually a bump in the carpet if it's not visible. Look for a spare wire in the dash that originally went to it.

Im trying to find where i can gt a complete guide on how to install a car stereo from color coding the wires to installing a dash kit


  1. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL ON YOUR BATTERY!
  2. For an old stock stereo, you may have to remove the dash or certain parts of it to access the stereo. Do that by locating screws and bolts and taking them off. Make sure to keep them in a safe place.
  3. For an aftermarket stereo, insert DIN tools into each slot on the stereo behind the faceplate. Slide the whole stereo out.
  4. Disconnect the antenna wiring (The wire with the big metal tip)and the stereo head unit wiring (wire harness).
  5. Reconnect the antenna into your new stereo.
  6. Use **** connectors and wire crimps to connect the stock wire harness with a car specific one that is sold seperately. The color of the wires on each harnass should match up.
  7. Reconnect the negative terminal on your battery and see if it works.
  8. Slide the stereo back into the dash and remount the dash that you removed, including screws and bolts.
hope this will help you

Xm not working


I had a short in my TERK antenna and it gave me the same problem.

If you know someone else using xm, you can try their antenna to see if that is.

I took mine to Best Buy and they had one they checked it with.





Best of Luck.
