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.

Sony cdx-g2050up radio in car will not pick up


you most likely have a bad antenna or "Somehow" got disconnected from the back of radio, I would remove the glove box or reach underneath the dash at the radio area and see if you can touch the back of the radio and check the connection, If its connected you have to check the wires at the Antenna outside, UNless you have it built into the Front Windshield , Then open hood and make sure plug is connected in the dead center bottom of windshield.. Good luck

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!!

How do I get my radio to work? All I hear is static and I just installed my sony xplood deck. My antena goes up and down every time i turn my stereo on but radio isnt working


Plug in the antenna jack into the antenna hole in back of radio. Depending on the car you may need an antenna adapter. Cars that need antenna adapters are VW's, Nissans, New Honda's.

I have replaced the car radio antenna on 1993 Discovery. Works fine on am very pore reception on fm. The car radio, factory fitted, is Eurovox Model 92039986. Is there an adjustment to tune the radio to...


Check your connections on the antenna again. Am usually gets decent reception. sounds like your antenna connection isnt fully connected either at the stereo connection or at the actual antenna connection.

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

I have XM radio in my chevy malibu. Worked fine


I believe when the antenna loses power it does not show it on the screen sounds like there might be a break in the antenna wire or simply came out of socket in the rear of the radio.

If antenna is not connected will it turn on


The unit should power up without an antenna. If it powers up then you would only get hash noise on the speakers. You can put a paper clip with a 12" piece of wire to the input or where the ant should go to see if you are getting a signal.
If you have power at the unit then you may have a bad ground (-).

Nissan Sentra Radio Antenna


Let me guess - the hole on the factory head unit that is meant for the antenna lead is small-gauge, and the wire in the car is larger? If so, you probably have an adapter plugged onto the factory antenna wire. Both of my Nissans had small antenna wire plugs, and to use the antenna wire with an aftermarket deck, I had to buy a small (4-6" long) adapter that would plug onto my antenna wire and adapt it to a larger size to fit the standard-sized antenna jacks on the aftermarket head units. See if you can grab the end of the antenna and pull it off to reveal the proper-sized hole.

As for the engine swap, it can be done but will require at the least, the engine, ECU, engine bay harness, possibly the chassis harness, possibly the transmission (if the transmissions are different for those two engines), and if the transmissions are different, most likely you'll need axles, some sort of adapter plates for mounting the transmission to the car, and maybe even wheel hubs as well (for receiving the different axles). It's a very big job.
