Inside the car there should be a splitter between the stereo itself and the antenna in a side plate
behind the dooor kind of under the dash follow your antenna wire from the stereo you should find the splitter along the way it may have came loose or even off

How to program memory for radio stations


Scan until you find a station you like and remember the frequency, carry on until you find another station any station, put in the first frequency and quickly press and hold the button that you want to save it too until the unit beeps. Carry on for the rest of the buttons. Generally with the FM there are two sets of presets, one for each time you press the FM button. The display will usually show FM1 and FM2.

The AM reception problem: It acts like I have no antenna. When I switch from FM (which works great!) to AM, there is no volumn. So, I turn up the volumn. As I drive along, the reception ebbs and flows,...


The FM antenna is not the same as the AM antenna. The FM antenna is what sticks out of the car. The AM antenna is inside the radio, a grayish black rectangular or round bar of metal, with wire wond around it on one end. Receiver sensitivity for an AM tune circuit is critical. If tuned properly, the reception should improve. However, they are not in most cases because of the additional cost to perform a good job and the expensive of more critical components.

Dual xhd6425 Reception Problems


My XHD6425 seems to be very inconsistent... Sometimes I get okay reception, other times I get terrible reception (much worse than my original stock Ford radio). The reception problems are more noticeable on stations that are more than 30 miles away or so.
Perhaps oddest of all, I've sometimes had it bounce back and forth between two stations (like if you are driving and in the middle of nowhere, half way between two stations), even in areas where I know should be getting good reception on one station and had never heard of the other other station before.
If you've figured anything out, please let me know.

AM radio fuzzy now


I have to disconnect the power supply (I installed a switch) to shut off entirely the XM power supply as it will wipe-out your AM reception. Nothing you can do other than put in a switch. Even if the XM unit is OFF, you will still get the interference from the power supply.

Alpine CDM-7857 Distant-local switching


Yep, you'll see a Play/Pause button. Just press that until it says DX Seek (or Seek if you want to skip over stations that are slightly farther away). Then press your tune buttons! If it still doesn't work while in DX or DX Seek mode, then hold the tune button for a second. It'll beep and start scanning to the next one!

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

Am reception


I've used this radio for years.  It's a direct replacement for Porsche cars up to about 1998.  Installation is easy and make sure to get the iPod connection cable.  It's an assessory.  
About AM yes there's the 9kHz vs 10KHz, but frankly here in LA it gets better AM reception than the JBL in my new Prius.  The only problem is you can't buy it in NA.  Getting it from the EU is a pain.  But it's worth it

Bad reception


I see you've already read the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual! The only other things I can think of to check would be the actual connection between the radio (aka head unit) and the antenna. It's usually just a press-fit connection behind the radio, but if it's loose, corroded, or is touching some other metal, it could affect the reception.
There's also the small possibility something changed at the transmitter tower for the radio station. That happened in my area once, where they changed the direction in which most of the signal power was being broadcast. Westside reception got better, eastside reception got worse.
