Don't hook both antennas up. Co phased antennas only work if they are 8 feet apart and both tuned exact.

you will have to lower your mic gain to turn the talk back up.

If you only have a 1 mile range, I doubt you are doing 100 watts. Unless your antenna system is that bad, in which case you are going to blow out the radio.

Galaxies are nice radio's. I wouldn't have ruined it with a mod like that. Also, I doubt its doing 100 watts. Guy is blowing smoke up your ****.

make sure your antenna is properly tuned, and just use one antenna. it will work out better for ya.

My radio lights are very dim almost unable to see them on my 2006 ford fusion se. What is the cause of this and can it be easily fixed?


Most vehicles have a button for the dash and radio to brighten the inside lights. It may have accidently been moved toward dim. It's usually on the left of steering wheel.

1998 BUICK REGAL WONT START BUT DOESNT DIM LIGHTS


It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year. If its shuting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix...

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/


Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. For a list of cars effected by this problem. See the NEWROCKIES link on the right side of their page......... They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere from 600-1000 bucks.

----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

Ok, today I replaced/removed several exterior lights: 1) I replaced the left headlight 2) I removed a burned out bulb from the high mount brakelight (local part store was out of stock, coming in...


I can help you out with the left turn signal not blinking. Maybe it's a flasher or the light bulbs aren't getting current through the wiring.

I can't help you out with the interior gauge lights not turning on when you turn the headlamps on. It may have to do with the headlamp switch, though.

I've never seen the lights on the radio not dim when the headlamp switch is turned on. hm.

Good luck on this repair.

My dash light doesnt come on anymore, how do i fix


They probably took the bulb out or it is burnt out. I would check the bulb. The dash light is supposed to light every time the car is started. It is called a bulb check.

Kawasaki kmx125 lights go dim when revving engine. work fine on i


I had the same issue, and it after lots of testing and measuring, found out it was only that 'earth' wire that you have at the bottom left part of the engine, coming out from the left engine cover. You will find it easily, it's a standalone wire, mine had its sleeve too dry, might have been why it was not well connected. It also had a mix of sand and oil in it, so no wonder the lights would dim out. The wire plugs into some sort of a screw, you really can't miss it :) Even the old, worn sounding Yuasa battery got back to perfect function, only added distilled water to it and let it run fro some time. Cheers:)

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.
