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.

Poor radio reception.I've tried a new aerial mast,no improvement. CD player sounds fine. Any ideas? (Passat Est.2003)


Important! Please give copies to all your VW Technicians C 91--99--07 E 1999 Volkswagen of America, Inc. 1 Subject: Model(s): Group: Number: Date: AM Radio, Poor Reception 1999, 2000 91 99--07 New Golf, New Jetta, Aug. 2, 1999 New Beetle, Passat Condition AM reception is poor. May be caused by: ? An incorrect antenna mast installed for the antenna base equipped with the vehicle ? Poor ground at the antenna base or radio ? Poor battery ground to chassis or engine ? Poor antenna cable connection at Radio ? Corrosion at the antenna coaxial connectors at radio or antenna Service Vehicles are equipped with either a Bosch or a Clarion antenna base mounted on the roof and (for shipping purposes) the appropriate matching mast is located in the luggage compartment. If radio antenna masts are removed from vehicles and stored until vehicles are sold, there is a chance that an incorrect mast can be installed at the time of delivery. Note: Mismatched antenna mast and base will cause poor AM radio reception. The antenna base and mast can be identified visually as follows: (Cont. on Page 2)91-A260 requires gloss finish antenna mast 57mm 49mm Bosch 91-A261 requires matte finish antenna mast 61mm 41mm Clarion 91-A262 Technical Bulletin Important! Please give copies to all your VW Technicians C 91--99--07 E 1999 Volkswagen of America, Inc. 2 Bosch antenna ? Base (although oval) is more circular in shape (approx. 57mm x 49mm). ? Made in Germany stamped on underside of base. ? Two screws on underside of base are unpainted. ? Requires gloss finish antenna mast. Clarion antenna ? Base is more oval in shape than Bosch (approx. 61mm x 41mm). ? Two screws on underside of base are painted. ? Requires matte finish antenna mast. If antenna mast matches the antenna base correctly: -- Check antenna coaxial cable connections --arrows-- for corrosion and clean if necessary (DO NOT apply stabilant). Passat coaxial cable connection for radio is under the carpet on right side of tunnel near shifter. -- Ensure that coaxial cable is firmly seated in radio (Passat cable connection, see previous step). -- Check ground at the antenna below roof Nut --4-- (torque = 7+1 Nm) must firmly secure antenna to roof). (Cont. on Page 3)Technical Bulletin Important! Please give copies to all your VW Technicians C 91--99--07 E 1999 Volkswagen of America, Inc. 3 -- Check ground for radio behind radio on cross member (On Passat models as of Nov. 1998 beginning VIN: XE285000 ground for radio is on right side of center tunnel). -- Check engine compartment ground, left side, below battery tray; frombattery GND to body. -- Check engine/transmission ground on transmission, near engine block. -- If all grounds and antenna mast are OK. -- Replace antenna and coaxial cable assembly

I have sound when I play the radio but no sound when the dvd, cd, or ipod is playing. What could be the problem? Do I need to hook the mute wire up to?


are you running sound through an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). the blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, so the power antenna will go down.

The reception on my radio is verey poor on all stations, i have replaced the detachable section of the ariel on the roof at the rear of my 5 door 2006 diesel vitara but this did not help?


Perhaps the 'antenna' wire on the back of your radio has become loose. Try taking out the radio and making sure the separate wire labeled 'antenna' has not frayed, come loose, or fallen out.

H ,ive brout a second hand fusion 10 inch sub,with built in amp .i have already tryed to c if its going to work ,all conectins are fine but no power is running to sub and amp i checked the fusez no...


Do you have the remote on from the head unit hooked up. If there is nothing to tell the amp to turn on it wont. You can bypass this to see if the thing works by using a jumper wire from the power wire to the remote on. I don't suggest leaving it like that though cause it will drain your battery over time. You need to hook the remote on to a power source that is only on when the radio is on. Like a power antenna wire.

Kenwood cd reciever model 241-Sa, fitted by halfords, am receprion very poor, interferance. What do I do? Thanks


Modern AM reception is usually quite bad. We are used to the high quality sound from other formats and FM, AM has a very compressed frequency range so will always sound poor in comparison. The interference could be due to poor earthing or suppression on the electrical equipment in the car. Usual suspects are ignition, wiper motors and fans. A suppressor between the +V and earth usually help, fitted as close to each device as possible. The devices causing the interference can be pin pointed by turning one electrical item on at a time and seeing if it causes a problem. Another issue is that a lot of modern vehicles use the rear screen demister as an aerial, which can cause bad reception and interference. An external aerial is always best.
