Hi,

A possibility is that the antenna cable/plug is shorted. You can try verifying this with a continuity tester or simply unplug the antenna and stick a piece of insulated wire with the tip/end stripped into the antenna. Try the AM with the wire as the antenna. Just be carefully not go that far as the wire may reach the PCB/electronics.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again richos,



    The outside area of the antenna plug would definitely touch the body of
    the CD/Tuner as it is the ground where the shielding of the cable is
    soldered to. I was referring to the central point where the active wire
    is soldered to and is connected to the exposed antenna element.



    Another possibility to consider is the orientation/location of the vehicle/antenna (though unlikely).



    As to the FM, it would still work (even if shorted) since it operates
    on MHz (unlike AM in KHz). Some antennas for FM (exclusively) even have
    a balun (coil) matching which is shorted when tested for continuity.



    Have you tried the insulated wire?

you do not need to connect the illumination wire that is to dim the radio when the lights are turned on. make sure you have +12v on both the red and yellow wire and ground to the black wire. the yellow should be unswitched and the red should be a switched source.

Pioneer DEH 1950's favorites/booksmarks/number inputs reset


hi mate,
the cd player consists of 3 types of wires, 1 for negative, 1 for memory- the yellowcolor wire, 1 positive-the red color wire. you must connect the memory wire(yellow) directly to the car battery so that the battery constantly feeds electric current to the player to store your bookmarks or whatever you program it. the red wire must be connected to the ignition barrel( which means your key starter). the negative(black) must be connected to the negative terminal of battery.

Hey, all you have to do is to turn off your radio and press on the audio botton until you can adjust your clock, then press again until you see "FM 100" on the display, now push the ">" botton to change it to "FM 50" and finaly another long press on the audio to wrap up.. and it's done.
