Disconnect AM/FM cable at both ends. With an ohm meter check continuity of cable end to end,center to center. You should see 1ohm on your meter. If so swing forks side to side and watch meter.If meter goes open the cable has a break in it.Look for kinking near where cable exits main harness.Cable is ridculously cheap from the dealer. Labor to install properly another story.

If anything has been added to the electronic system (hid lights, led lights, hidden antenna, amp), interference can result.

If not, check the cable and connections at the radio and antenna, vibration may have caused them to come loose.

If all is secure, your radio may need to be realigned. Contact iron Cross Audio for repair options.

Very poor radio reception


FM reception depends upon having a good antenna matched to the radio. What type of radio are you using, and what are you using for an antenna?

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

Reception is very poor. Grounding issues? Please


Reception has little to do with grounding. The ground plan is for transmitting. As long as the coax is connected and is in good standing, it should receive fine regardless of grounding.

There are a few reasons you may have bad reception.
  1. Turn the RF GAIN all the way up. This is your receive sensitivity.
  2. Squelch is too high. It should only be turned up enough to cut out the background noise.
  3. Poor antenna. If the antenna is cheap, and not made well, this could be the problem.
  4. Not enough of the antenna above the vehicle. It needs to be at least 60% of the antenna above the vehicle.
Hope this helps!

2005 Ultra Classic CB transmits fine, does not receive at all . Replaced headset and cables, no luck.


Have someone check your SWR readings (using a SWR meter) on the antenna. This should give you some information on reception.

No am reception and poor fm reception - 2004 Kia Sedona


If the antenna is on the front, pop the hood, and locate where the antenna wire connects to the bottom of the antenna and make sure it is connected well. If everything checks out there, you will have to pull the radio from the dash, and look at the back of it. There will be a large black wire by itself connected to the radio. Push it in to make sure its connected as well. That could really be your only problem unless your radio happens to have a fault on the inside which is extremely rare. Hope that helps

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.
