If the switch is stuck or broken in the off position there is no other way to turn it on you will have to have it repaired

is it original antenna and radio? the antenna runs on a seperate switch oor goes up and down with radio on and off switch? if it is original stereo that is original chances are the antenna is broken and stuck in up position the mast may be purchased at dealership but motor may also be no good or not far behind. Listen at antenna for motor noise when radio is turned off if you hear the motor the plasic that drives it inside is broken.

The light for high swr keeps coming on. replaced antenna and coaxle. how do i go about lowering the swr. is there a nob or switch for this. thank you


You cannot lower the SWR via the radio. it has to do with the antenna. The length of the antenna is essential to transmitting properly. It must match the transmitting frequency.

To check SWR tune to ch 20. Flip the meter switch to CAL. Key the radio without talking into the radio. Turn the CAL knob up until the meter needle is at the CAL mark. Unkey the mic. Flip the meter switch to SWR. key the radio again, and the meter will show your SWR. We already know it is high because you are getting antenna warning, but we will have a base line now to work on.

What you did was calibrate the meter for that channel. that is necessary to check the SWR. So you must calibrate for each channel you check.

You should at least be under 2 swr. Ideal is 1.5 or under. the lower the better.

If your SWR is high, your antenna is either too long or too short. To find out here is what you do:

Check the SWR on ch 1 and ch 40 calibrating for each channel. Compare the difference of the SWR between 1 and 40. If the SWR is higher on 40 then 1, your antenna is too long. If your SWR is higher on 1 then 40 your antenna is too short. All CB antennas have a way to adjust the length.

If its a mag mount, its usually a set screw you loosen to raise or lower the whip. Fiberglass antenna's usually have something under the cap at the tip to adjust. It will either be like the mag mount, with a set screw and a small rod to raise or lower it, or a screw, that you screw in or out to make it longer or shorter.

make small adjustments. 1/8th or a 1/4 of an inch at a time. Each time you make a change, take an SWR reading on 1 and 40 again and compare the difference. The difference should be getting less. Do this until there is very little or no difference between 1 and 40.

Then you go back to 20, because it is the center channel and check the SWR there. It should now be low. If you did a good job it will be under 1.5 and you are good to go.

I have tried 4 different antennas for my tv/dvd combo and cannot get all local channes. Need help


since the digital switch a few months ago, regular rabbit ear antennas wont work to pick up stations who are now broadcasting all digitally. make sure you are using the right antenna. one of the major retail stores can point you in the right direction. also, if you have the right antenna, run a scan for the channels. the frequencies may be a little different since the switch.

My cd player will not work in 2005 my chrysler 300 the radio works but the cd player wont work whats wrong


Your chrysler 300 has a factory amplifier built in to the system. Seems you have connected the radios antenna turn on wire (usually solid blue) to the factory amp turn on wire. You must disconect the radios antenna turn on wire and connect the blue wire with a white stripe to the factory amp turn on wire. The problem with the blue antenna turn on wire is that when you are switching from radio to cd the unit is shutting off power on that wire(because it thinks its trying to lower a power antenna) Once the correct blue/white wire is connected the factory amp will stay on wether its am/fm or cd. Hope this helped

Sony xplode cd player sub problems


Switch your blue wires around.

You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.

Simple 2 minute fix.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Wont talk out.


Hey, stubby, Turn you mic gain wide open on the radio. That controls the modulation. Course if the radio has not been tuned that makes a big difference. Also the size of the antenna and how well it's tuned makes a big difference. Mechanic
