If you have the model with the antenna that extends itself as opposed to the stationary ones, then you might have to. we're having the same problem with my friends neon, but we cant figure out which wire to connect it to.

if you get a wiring diagram for the car, it might come up as "power antenna/amp" or something of the like. with ford, i believe its a white wire, but i could be mistaken.

Buy a 300ohm FM Y antenna wire screw the spade ends into the balance hookup and fasten the Y section on your wall, "higher the better" this will improve reception. The antenna can be purchased at Radio Shack or Tv repair shop.

Am fm reception bad


FM reception is weak



What to do


• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.


• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna

• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.


* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.


The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.


Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.


Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

I installed my Sony CDXGT250MP today and am able to listen to the cd played or Aux output but I have no radio reception?? I connected all of the wires and did have three left over in the wiring in the old...


The orange/black wire should be a dimmer, the blue wire should be power antenna, the Blue wire should only be hooked up if your antenna goes up when you turn the car on, also goes down when car is off. OR you could possibly have an aftermarket antenna that needs power to boost signal. There should be a thick black wire that is pluged in somewhere on the back of your radio.bassmekanic.gif

Pioneer Avic D3 has poor fm reception when the car is on. It works fine when the car is off. Any ideas?


Your power antenna wire maybe hooked up to ignition. So when you turn off the car no more voltage is going to your antenna wire so your power antenna goes down causing a poor reception. You must hook up the blue wire on the radio harness to the power antenna wire.

Radio/tuner reception


You will need to buy a signal amplifier antenna. One that doe not have to be connected to the Clock/Radio. It will provide the amplified signal and the radio antenna (the a/c line cord and the back of the clock/radio) will be able to pick up the signal from the amplified antenna.[http://www.radiolabs.com/products/antennas/am-antenna.php] this web link will show you one type of these antenna's. Copy the web link and paste it into the address bar in your browser. It will take you to the website. There maybe other types of these antenna's but this one had the best price. Call the store and talk to them before you buy the antenna to make sure it will work in your situation. I hope this information helps you with your antenna problems.

No Subs in CD mode??


Ah, common problem. You hooked up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the power antenna wire (solid blue). Hook up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the blue wire with white stripe. The power antenna only provides power when the deck is in tuner mode for the power antenna to be extended, intuitively, and cuts power in any other mode, because certainly it's only needed for AM/FM reception.
