If your vehicle needed antenna adapters to convert to standard rf ends,(GM uses them, some Fords and some imports as well) chances are you've lost alot of signal. If you can solder well, you can pick up standard antenna ends at Radio Shack and solder them on in place of adapters, this will regain signal strength. If you do not have adapters on your antenna for the changer, check the ground of the RF module. Move it to the floor or directly to the in dash units ground. If you are uncomfortable doing this, most custom car audio shops can knock it out in an hour or so and probably charge 40-50 to do it. Hope this helps

AM will not work on my radio


It does not work at all or reception is bad? The radio has a ferrite bar antenna inside. Tune in to the frequency of the station you want and rotate the radio slowly to find the orientation for best reception. You may also try to hook an external AM antenna to the radio.

97 mitsubishi bad radio reception


It sounds like you are just in a weak reception area. If you feel this is not the case first try replacing the entire antenna assembly, it would be the primary cause of this type of problem.

FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

Does your car have an automatic raising and lowering antenna? If it does check your fuses for it. If not pull your radio out of the dash, and check to make sure that the antenna wire has not become lose or unplugged from the back.
