It is due to the vehicle antana. you need to purchase a antana booster. hook it to a 12v power plug antana from car to one side of booster and radio to other side. this will increase signal from car antana to radio and should fix problem. most boosters can be found at any car audio or truck stop and run from$10.00 - $25.00 good luck

I don't see an SE and not sure what you mean by "disconnect" but you can disconnect it electrically at the instrument panel fuse panel by removing the 5A RADIO fuse and the 10A ROOM fuse or by disconnecting the connectors on the rear of the radio

I have a 96 escort with no radio ;the wires are there,but i want to install a new radio.i don't know what wires hook up to the new radio


Hi, if the connector is still there, it is easiest to purchase a ford wiring adapter. The adapter will match the factory wires to an aftermarket stereo. If the connector is gone, see your factory wire colors below. Please let me know if you need additional help or have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
