    checked antenna cable; looks alright. had some music out then all just faded away. Same thing happened with tape player side. Can't quite get all the way to where antenna cable hooks to windshield antenna, but shouldn't the player still send out tunes?

  • grapegirl3 Jul 10, 2008

    Still not sure the antenna is the problem. power to the unit, but won't keep playing. haven't tried to clean the player yet. Can't figure out what all the wires go to or from.

Hi,

Based on your description/post:
fading sound - probably an internal fault on the Audiovox AV958 or loose grounding;
wiring - The wiring to my knowledge follows the standard GM. Yellow - switched power,
black - ground,
gray - illumination (connected to the park light).
Most are normally bunched in one connector that plugs to the factory radio or spliced for the Audiovox. Speaker wires would be light green/dark green combo and the other pair could be tan and brown. If the AudioVox uses the old output wiring system, then the wires would be green, black and gray. The black would be common to both left and right speakers.

Additionally, wiring diagram for a 1970 El Camino maybe found here and here.

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.

If the tape player is having the same problem, then you are right, the antenna is not the problem. It sounds that your most likely going to have to replace the player, like the first respondant, Jaime867 suggested. I would be replacing the player at this point. It will save you a lot of aggrivation looking for a problem that will most likely end up in replacement anyway.

Hope that helps...

The cassette player will still be sending the audio to the speakers even if the antenna connections are not working.
I would suggest to check the wiring connections from your device to the speakers, if that appears good the other problem could be that the amplifier IC is defective and will need to be replace.
The IC replacement might not be a DIY project due to the complexity of the device and the dis-assembly can be difficult if it's the first time you want to do it.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

    If cables are ok try cleaning the head and tractor wheel with isopropyl alcohol and cotton, take care not to leave cotton stuck in the wheel or head gears.
    To do this you need to start the deck without a tape inside, it should fix the problem.

There is interferance in th esytem that is causing this effect. If the noise is coming while in motion then the noise is induced from the electrics of the vehicle.
Check or add a 0.47mfd/100Volt capacitor which is a clip type to the power into the set. If not use a DC/DC isolator or even a inductance coil with a capacitor , one you can salvage from an old set.
Make sure the antennae is good and the local reception is strong.If not the static might dominate.

Hi there,

Well there's lots of possible reasons. The FM receiver portion of the radio is separate from the AM Band receiver, pre-amp, and amplifier sections of the radio. The FM receiver may have simply failed, as well as the CD player portion of the radio. Your car FM needs repair, you need a multimeter to check it or take it to a repair person. Please post further comments for further help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I have just bought a 1986 mercedes which has the original radio in it. im not sure what make of radio it is, but on the cassette player it says becker pacific electronics it has 4 buttons to put radio...


Becker in the past has worked with two methods: 1) Select station, pull the button out (pull, not yank) and press it back in, or, 2) Tune station, press the button in for 5 sec. Depending on the model, when you switch between am and fm , the same button stores also the station in the alternate band.

Casstte Player- '94 ford


I think you are saying you are using a cassette adapter to play the external iPod/PSP etc. and I presume the cassette plays regular tapes OK. The auto-reverse cassette player thinks the 'tape' is over, so reverses then ejects. You can try putting in a regular tape, change sides then eject. Try the adapter again. Hopefully the adapter will work in 'one' direction.

Station 1450 has irregular noise when car is running; 1240=OK


Hello,

If the "static" you are getting is a high pitched whine and the noise volume increases and decreases with changes in engine speed, you probably have alternator induced radio noise.

Many times such noises are caused by poor ground connections that have begun to corrode over time. First try removing or loosening the screw or bolt which grounds the radio to the vehicle frame. Using a fine wire brush or a piece of steel wool, clean off both the terminal and the location on the vehicle where it was attached. Then reattach the ground. While you are behind the dash, make sure that the antenna connection is fully seated. Pull it out and put it back in again to make sure.

If these steps do not solve the problem, you may need to install noise supression devices. The are available at many retail locations like Radio Shack and some auto parts stores, as well as numerous online stores such as: http://www.crutchfield.com and http://www.sonicelectronix.com.
