Extending the Antenna wire to reach new deck

I recently replaced the deck in my '86 chevy. The antenna wire reached the stock radio fine, but on my new kenwood deck the input is on the opposite side and it won't reach. Does anyone make an extender for that, or will i have to cut and splice wires to make it work?

    The wire actually does fit into the back of the deck, i bought the adapter and the adapter doesnt work with the antenna wire. unless there is different adapters?

If it is a Chevy then the antenna wire will not fit in the first place. best buy sells an adapter that ill extend that wire and make it the right size. The wire is like 7 to 10 dollars.

I recently bought a Connex CX366CE. I plan to install a SLMM-1 SUPER MOD AND SWING POWER MODULATION kit. I plan to hook it to a Viper 25,000 watt antenna. Is this going to work? Do I need an antenna tuner...


you should be fine, check your swr's before and after.a swing kit only throws the carrier and adds more modulation. the connex is a good radio to start with,you should be fine, with the mod kit and radio you will never reach 25k on that antenna with this setup. just make sure the antenna is tuned rite for optimum operation(low swr).

Probably bad antenna wire at the antenna itself. Try plugging a piece of bare wire into the antenna hole (the 1/8" hole in the center) on radio, you should get something, hissing or some sound.

Changing AM / Fm radio antenna on 2006 chevy silverado. bought new antenna and it came with short pigtail. where does it plug into. Thanks


Aftermarket antennas come with notoriously short leads. What you need to do is remove the stock antenna and compare lengths to the replacement. The difference is the length of extension you'll need to get from your local electronics supply or auto parts store. The stock antenna plugs into the back of the stereo itself.When you route the new lead, try to follow the original location as best as possible.
Good luck!!

My daughter has a 98 olds 88 i removed the stock stereo and put in a pioneer cd player but i didnt see any wire on the stereo side for the elec. antenna i was wondering how i can wire it to work


Most aftermarket pioneer cd/radio decks have the electrical connector for the antenna that I've seen.

Is this a cd only deck, or does it have radio functions?

Did you use a new harness wiring adapter to get the pioneer radio to work with the old harness?
There should be a color coded set of wires for the power antenna on that. And, then the Pioneer radio should have wires that were labeled for the power antenna.

How far can I get this thing to reach,and how ?


With a good antenna, and the antenna tuned for best SWR, about 8 miles from mobile to mobile, and about 12 miles from mobile to base radio.

You can modify the radio and turn up the power, it will get you more range, and make the radio sound louder, but you will still be limited, because radio is line of sight. Hills and structures block RF signals. you go down a hill, you will loose distance.

With a cobra 29 that has been tuned up sitting on a hill about 1400 feet above sea level, I was able to talk to some one on a base radio about 50 miles away with out my amp on. I also have a very very good antenna. not something you normally see either.

With a clear on blocked line from antenna to antenna, you can talk really far on a stock radio. There is a saying for CB antenna's. "Height is might."

There are a lot of things that effect the distance a CB can reach.

If there is Skip active, you can possibly talk thousands of miles with a stock radio. Skip is when the ionosphere becomes charged by solar energy form a solar flair and causes the radio waves to bounce off them, making it seem like you have a straight line of sight to places that would normally be blocked by the natural curvature of the earth.

Then there are Linear amplifiers. They increase the power of the signal of the radio. They will increase the output range, but then you may be talking to people that don't have an amp, and that you will not be able to hear them because they do not have enough power to reach you.

So, get a really good antenna. Make sure it is tuned for the lowest possible SWR. Refer to the manual that came with your radio on how to find out your SWR, and how to lower it. There will also be instructions on how to tune the antenna that came with the antenna. Then bring the radio to a CB shop or a CB tech and have them tune it up. It will cost about $30.

With my radio barefoot, and can normally talk around 30 miles or more without worrying about hills and obstructions. (Barefoot means, without the amp on)

How do you replace an antenae on a 1965 mustang.


Disconnect the cable at the radio. Then unscrew the hardware holding the antenna to the fender. Then pull the antenna base out of the fender, disconnect the cable from the antenna base turning it back and forth with pliers or you can cut it. Do not let the cable fall back into the fender. Now take the cable from the new antenna and duct tape it to new antenna cable. Now inside the car pull on the old cable until the new cable reaches the radio. Plug cable into radio then hook up the hardware on the fender for the new antenna and you're done. Good luck.

Where in the hell does the antenna wire plug into on a 1990 chevy k1500 with factory radio, did not see a place on equalizer or radio itself.


In most cases the antenna plug directly into the back of the radio. But GM came up with this crazy 3 piece stereo system. You have the display/selector, the tape deck/EQ, and the tuner. The antenna will be pluged into the tuner which is buried deep into the dash above the acceleator slightly to the right. I have installed close to 100 stereos and this threw me for a loop. Follow the tape deck/eq wiring harness to find it. Happy hunting.

I have a 1998 Chevy Suburban the radio in it worked fine until I got it home. The it just quit.. When you hit the power button you can hear it try to come on but it doesnt.. But every once in a blue moon...


Sounds like a loose wire some place, like a ground wire or hot lead. Is it a stock radio or after market? Either or thats what it sounds like to me, loose connection. Might be loose wire or connection to one of the speakers. You will just have to start tracing wires until you find the problem.
