The blue wire on an after-market radio is the power antenna wire, or sometimes called the "remote" wire. It's used to send a 12V current to a power antenna, which tells it when to go up and come down. If you have a fixed (non telescoping) antenna, this wire is not needed. This blue wire is also used as the remote turn-on lead for amplifiers, equalizers, and other add-on stereo equipment.

Am radio not working

If I remember correctly, FM and AM tuners are separate devices with separate antennas. Both devices are located in the trunk. Check antenna connections and fuses, then try with diagnostic tool and look for error codes.

Hey, I have a oldschool pioneer dc-z92 system with tuner, turntable and CD player. I am having trouble setting a tuner, There is just 1 antenna which is AM loop antenna ( I dont know what is it ) I...

It sounds to me like you only have the AM loop antenna installed (looks like a circle). This is used for receiving AM radio frequencies only. There should be a separate dipole antenna that attaches to terminals next to the AM terminals that looks like a long pair of wires for FM frequencies. Sometimes the connection is coaxial (circular with two connections, one connection inside the other) and sometimes it is two separate wire connections. I hope this helps.

Make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn the amp on. The blue wire is antenna remote and turns off when leaving tuner mode. The blue/white wire is amp remote turn on.

I'm putting panasonic cq-c1103u player into 2001 corolla using an adapter plug. I have all the wires connected from plug to player harness, but the is 2 wires left over from the plug, the blue power antena...

unless you have a power antenna or an external amp, all those are extra wires. just cap them off. the orange wire is only used if the radio has an illumination feature that allows dimming on the radio. it is not needed to see the radio. DO NOT connect the blue/white from the radio to the orange of the harness. whenever you turn the radio on it will send 12V to your cars illumination circuit. this could damage your lights, dash lights and maybe the radios output.

No am/fm signal on my in dash clarion cd player

What you might want to do is check your antena. The inexpensive to way to check: Get a piece of wire about two feet long. Expose about an inch of wire. Remove the antena from the back of the radio. Use the above wire and insert into the antena port. Hang the reminder of the wire up so that it can receive a signal. If this works then you have a bad antena. If you have the same problem, the problem is internal and will probably have to be taken to a service location.

Marantz SR870 tuner not working

Make sure your FM antena connection is good. A receiver will not pick up an FM signal without an antena. Even a small piece of wire will work to test. If the Tuner section is bad, an external tuner can always be connected to an Aux input. Due to cost, it may not be cost effective to repair this unit.
Hope this helps.

Poor radio reception with Jensen VM9512 in 2001 Nissan Altima

If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.

if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..

hope this helps
