Question about Car Audio & Video

Aerial connector The original GM radio has been removed from my Omega which in turn was removed leaving me a blank space! The replacement radio has had a standard aerial plug and the wiring has been adapted for this. I have obtained a Philips CAR 400 to fit the vehicle but the aerial socket appears to be a co-axial type. Is there a special plug available for this?

How do I shift the radio antenna off the roof of my Mazda BT50 onto the bullbar?

remove the roof antenna ( unscrew off the mount) buy an aerial for the bumper. run the coaxial cable back to the radio and pull the existing cable out and after fitting a connector on to the end of the new cable plug it into the back of the radio. It will be a lot of trouble to remove the existing cable and roof mount and you will need it at a later date.

I replaced original cassette/radio in 2003 Ford Focus with a single CD/radio (1S4F-18C838-BA). When I turn on the headlights, the radio display light turns off. I noticed that the original connector has...

Instead of plugging the factory harness into the radio an adapter might be needed.
ref. link:
stereo-mci1pvvbw0dqilycvujzsuug-3-0.jpeg the above diagram is supposed to match your radio from the factory. The documentation with the new radio should provide the pins and plugs and what is on them. The correct plug or adapter should match up with the factory harness and work correctly.

Hi,just want to know where fuse for electric aerial is situated as aerial is damaged and makes terrible noise when i start my truck and turn it vehicle is a 1996 mitsubishi challenger

Ussually the fuse is in the aerial motor connector or comes with the radio fuse.
If ur annoyed by the antenna, just disconnect the electrical connector in the antenna, not the antenna wire!

U could buy the rod of the antenna only it is chepaer than buying the whole assembly!

Order it in ur nearest parts dealer!

Electric Aerial Clicking when Radio is switched on and off.

Check the keep alive memory wire to the radio connector, there is a fuse, check it. there are 2 wires that have 12 volts one all the time even when the key is off, that keeps the radio stations and time, the other is the power lead, itis hot when the key is turned on. As far as the antenna goes I am not sure what you mean, does it work, the mast comes up?

Can't heat radio

Hi There Laura,
For you to get radio reception then you will need an aerial...
The FM stations are very weak and thus need a good long aerial to collect these weak signals.
Some receivers need the aerial to be a "loop" so and on the rear of the receiver there will be a special two port aerial connector for the FM..
You dont say where you are but if you are in the "outback' then a good long aerial will be needed...

The same can be said for the AM radio signals these are much lower in frequency but still need an aerial.
There is a difference with the AM signals as they also need a good earth as follows.
On the back of the receiver there will be an aerial connector marked AM and it will show an earth connector and and aerial connector.

There needs to be a good earth connected to the earth connection and another long wire connected to the aerial connector.
The earth should be a metal spike about 500mm long driven into the soil outside in the garden
and connected to a wire which comes inside thru the window to the earth connector on the rear of the receiver.
The aerial wire must not be connected to earth at all, but insulated.....
this wire connects to the AM connector out thru the window and up to the nearest high point. Like a tree or a pole...NOT A POWER POLE as that dangerous.

When you connect to the tree use a piece of plastic rope or something to insulate the wire from what ever it touches, as the radio signals are not allowed to come in contact withthe earth until they get inside the receiver...
You can use a wire with a plastic cover on it if you like..
You may wish to ask your neighbour if you can look at his aerial connections and learn how its done...

He wont mind.... unless you are "outback" and the nearest neighbour is 100miles away..
That makes it more difficult.

If you get stuck ask here again and I'll pass on more detail for you..

Cheers for now

Radio cable length from rear aerial

no - the factory cable is a one piece cable to the radio- what you can do is to cut off the end that went to the original antenna replace it with a female antenna end and just plug the new antenna into it (easiest way)
