If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.
You will need the following things:
Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder. Liquid flux for soldering the braid. Small sizes of heat shrink tubing. Small heat gun. Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.
1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.
Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all
around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of
the insulation from each end.
3) Push the braid back to expose
the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation
to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose
pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.
4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.
Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece),
and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center
conductor. Look at the picture to see this.
Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder
them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do
not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on
the side where you do not want it to be.
6) Slide the small
white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and
use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.
push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just
made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable
between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux
on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look
8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.
The audio cables normally have only two wires in them, one being shielded the other not. You should be able to splice the two together to fix the problem, if there is no colour coding you wont cause any damage to anything if you get them back to front the first time round guessing.
Yes it does but in most cases, you need to at least partially remove radio to do it. Booster probably came with instructions. Read & follow them. Unless your'e experienced in this stuff, do NOT cut antenna wire & attempt a splice.
You dont actually have to take the antenna out of the car fender or where it sits, if you can remove the radio out of its deck and locate the power antenna wire just unplug it or cut it and tape it up and u should be ok. In most cases the color is blue, but if possible you want to test it to make sure. Also if u can get to the power antenna cables in the antenna location itself you can also cut or unplug the Antenna remote turn on wire, which should be blue as well. If u have any more questions just email me.
connect all of the speaker wires and remote antenna and amp turn on leads first. connect the antenna coax and ground wire. then apply the memory and hot wires. if you experience ignition noise at low volumes cut the ground wire and let the headunit ground through the antenna jack (providing you don't have a floating ground system (i.e., if all speaker grounds are tied together)).
take a piece of tv twin line antenna wire. cut a length about three feet long. strip both ends and twist the two wires together and solder. in the middle of one side, cut the conductor and bring out the two leads. now cut another piece of twin lead about six feet long and strip both ends.splice one end. one conductor each into the midpoint cut. what you have formed is loop antenna commonly called a YAGI. connect the other two wires to your receiver and try it.
