Question about Car Audio & Video

My 97' s-10 has a delco stero and the signal keeps going in and out like the ant. is not pluged in all the way, but i took the dash loose and puled out the unit and made sure its in all the way. it acts like the signal its getting isnt strong enough and its stuck on one station untill it comes on then i can change the ststion,and when i get close to a large metal structor or bridge it wants to come in more but after passing it goes back to noise. is this something i can fix or is the stero bad on the inside ?

Try a different antenna. Usualy a replacement antenna is only about 6 dollars. Try this first to make sure it is not the antenna. Even cheaper if you have at least 6 to 10 feet of wire splice one end and stick into the the antenna hole of the stereo. Extend the rest of the wire and see if signal is better. If the signal is better then the antenna needs to be replaced. If it doesn't get better, then the stereo needs to be worked on.
The only problem with that is that any delco service center will start at about $75 to look at the stereo. Replacing may be cheaper in the long run.

Installed aftermarket stero in GMC Z71, is you hit a bump the stero goes off

double check all your wiring and make sure all connections are tight. if there's an inline fuse holder, make sure it isnt loose. and make sure your grounding point is tight and clean. also check the fuses and wiring under the dash. if everything checks out, you've got yourself a faulty stereo.

if im not mistaken i you have to pull your dash off then behind the dash you will have about three or four screws holding your radio in place after removing those screws you should be able to take your radio out as far as puling you dash you will need to look for about two screws usually on the bottom if not the check in to make sure before you go yanking on your dash that you have removed every screw so as you dont break it
