SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Specs for BA XR8 Ute head

If you are talking about the cam brg caps, they are 10nm. I would be very careful when doing this, as the bolts must be torqued down in order. The sequence is too complicated to go into here. I would strenuously suggest you pay the $50 and buy a shop manual.

SOURCE: improve reception

HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
 
3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
 
4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Need fuse diagram for ba?


Howdy howdy John Mullins,

Thanks for adding the 2003 CLUE... that verified what I was suspecting: I am guessing the "BA" FORD nomenclature is pretty obscure ... I had to LOOK that part up... also "Utes"... Cute!

Now I am understanding "BA" to be a series of "Falcon" Fords
indigenous to DOWN UNDER typically between 2002 and 2005
(or 2003 to 2008... else where on the internet).

Being a life long FORD owner... I can tell you for certain FORD Factory manuals were/are available from the dealers... Being old fashioned... I like the hard copies (and have too many cars not to be self reliant)... and they all have the wiring diagrams, circuit drawings... schematics FOR SURE (Volume 3 of 3 on my '04 Navigator & Volume 3 of 5 on my '75 Ranchero).

You are going to like the last (Cabulture AU, local) option the best... eBay.

Problems with static


We doubt there is anything wrong with the wiring in your radio. It has been our experience that after market window tint can cause static and poor reception in vehicles that have radio antennas built into the rear window. Removing the tint improves the radio reception but still leaves something to be desired, especially on AM.
