    i dont think so, there sould be any possibility ti change this because i found jus a sec before that it's possible in sony mex bt2500 - i found service manual for bt2500 and they worte there:

    Frequency select switch
    The MW (FM) tuning interval is factory-set to the 9 k
    (50 k) position. If the frequency allocation system of
    your country is based on 10 kHz (200 kHz) interval, set
    the switch on the bottom of the unit to the 10 k (200 k)
    position before making connections.
    Note
    If the switch was set with power supplied to the unit, disconnect
    the power connector from the unit, wait for 20 seconds, then
    reconnect it.

    Tommorow i'll look for that swich in my bt5000, hope it'll be on the radio :) And now i'm starting to find service manual for bt 5000

I don't believe this is a user adjustable setting (at least it's not documented). Chances are, it is set within the firmware of the unit itself. Versions of this deck sold in Europe probably have a different version of firmware, allowing 0.1MHz FM increments. You might be able to talk to the European arm of Sony's support and ask them about updating the firmware to the latest European version. Keep in mind, putting EU firmware on a deck that was supposed to be used in the US could cause problems.

How do i change the AM radio to FM?


Hello
Press RADIO BAND.AUTO PRESET until the band you want appears in the display (direct power on). Each time you press this button, the indication changes as "FM" --> "AM". Hold down TUNE + or --, until the frequency digit begins to change in the display. The player automatically scans the radio frequencies and stops when it finds a clear station. If you can't tuned in a station, press the button repeatedly to change the frequency step by step. If FM broadcast is noisy, press "MODE" until "Mono" appears on the display and the radio will play in monatural without any noise. Only strong FM signals can be decoded to stereo. OK.

How to wire a sony cdx-gt640ui in a 1999 dodge intrepid...I get sound with the tuner, but no sound with cd, aux, and usb. I'm assuming its only an incorrect wiring setup...


instead of used the blue wire on the Sony head unit to the car wiring harness use the blue/whit wire

  • Blue - powers on only when am/fm is active
  • Blue/White - powers on when when radio is on am/fm/cd/ ect.

Sony CDX-M600R car radio CD: Radio does not work, CD player OK and all other funtions OK. When in radio mode can hear white noise but no transmitions. I have the same problem. No sound on AM section and FM...


Don't know if you have an external antenna or one mounted in windshield but you should be able to find the coaxial heading towards the back of the radio. Make sure that it is plugged into the radio.
