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?

How plug pioneer cdx- fm 673 in factory radio 2015 dodge challenger

You plug the cd changer modulator box into the factory radio antenna jack. Connect the factory antenna into the modulator box. The connect the modulators power and ground wires to the appropriate sources. Depending on what kind of connector dodge used you may have to purchase an set of antenna adapters. The modulator uses a standard Motorola plug. Various car manufacturers have created their own special plugs...i honestly do not know if dodge has done this or not.

My radio works but when i put on the cd changer it plays but no sound

Are you using an amplifier? If you are, it sounds like you are using the power antenna remote turn on (usually blue) instead of the amplifier remote turn on (usually blue/white). Leaving tuner mode when using the power antenna remote turn on turns the amplifier off.

If you are using an amplifier, make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn the amp on instead of the blue wire. The blue wire is power antenna remote turn on and shuts off when leaving tuner mode.

No AM!


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.
