Sony CDX-GT360S NO AM OR SHORTWAVE RECEIVE

I just put a new CDX-GT360S in my 2006 Toyota Corolla, CD Player works great, Receives great on FM, picking up a lot of stations however the AM and SW (Shortwave) bands are totally dead. I would of course suspect the antenna or connector might be the problem but it is receiving FM just fine ! Any help or suggestions are welcome.

    IT IS NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL, UNFORTUNATELY CAR ANTENNAS NOWADAYS ARE SUITABLE FOR LISTENING TO SHORTWAVE BANDS, THEY ARE VERY GOOD FOR FM STATIONS, YOU SHOULD THEN GET A CAR SW ANTENNA(RADIO SHACK,EBAY...) INSTALL IT YOU WILL SEE THAT SW BANDS WILL COME ALIVE.HOPE IT HELPS

IT IS NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL, MOST CARS NOWADAYS DON'T HAVE SHORTWAVE ANTENNAS, THEY OFTEN COME WITH ANTENNAS SUITABLE FOR FM STATIONS SO WHEN SW DXers LIKE US HAVE CD PLAYERS IN OUR CARS WE SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE IN MIND THAT ANTENNAS MUST BE CHANGED, HERE IS THE SOLUTION.. GO TO A RADIO SHACK OR EBAY AND GET ONE OF THOSE HIGH SW ANTENNAS AND YOU ARE READY TO GO.
HOPE IT HELPS

The optic inside the CD player may be dirty or damp, this is the part that reads the data from the cd, you can try cd cleaning discs or you may have get an engineer to open it and clean it with an alcohol swab. The optic could also be faulty which will be cheaper to buy a new cd player.

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.

If you stop by any car stereo shop, you should be able to purchase a wiring harness that will plug into your car's plug. You can then wire it up to the wires coming from your sony by matching up the standard wire colors.
