Hi I have poor reception in my car. Not sure exactly where the booster or being a calais where abouts is the second antenna? I heard that they had a built in one in the rear window. Is that true?
They came standard from the factory with an electric ariel, The ariel was located in the LHS Fr quarter panel just in front of the passenger rear vision mirror on the door. not sure if they had the adjustable electric ariel which would have an up and down arrow button just on the deck or under wear the factory head units were installed. The biggest problem for reception is if they are not earthed properly against the car. if the antenna has been replaced theres a good chance someone may have stuffed up the installation. its best to take the front left tyre off and remove the inner wheel guard/surround so you can get to the ariel unit. from there the cable just runs through the firewall panel and behind the dash to the stereo. they are easy to pull through but make sure you know which holes they came through. when pulling new cable you should remove the glove box to. just pull one of the back corners to the center and it will pop out then the rest is easy.
To simplify things you could just install a manual ariel aswell (430) new electric ones may cost around $100 for a aftermarket one.
