Radio for 1999 VW beetle has poor reception although FM is ok Possible problems?

antenna is unplugged or antenna wire is damaged (you will get FM without antenna) This could be the issue, but according to VWs own Technical Bulletins, it is more likely to be one of the following: 1. Poor ground at the antenna base or radio 2. Poor Battery ground to chassis or engine 3. Poor Antenna cable connection at Radio 4. Corrosion at the antenna coaxial connectors at radio or antenna 5. An Incorrect antenna mast installed for the antenna base equipped with the vehicle. You can also check antenna connections electronically through the radio (if a factory model). - Switch radio ON - Press and hold balance button for approx. 10 seconds - 3CPT7 will appear in display (numbers may vary and are not important) - Press CD mode button - 020.1 will appar in display (software version numbers may vary) - Press CD mode button again - FERN OFF / ON will appear in display (FERN = amplified antenna) if FERN ON appears, Antenna and connections are OK if FERN OFF appears, Radio may not be coded correctly for amplified antenna - Check for proper coding of radio, see coding tabel in Tech Bulletin Group 91 number 99-09 dated Oct 25, 1999 When radio is coded according to this table FERN is operational If Radio is coded correctly and FERN OFF appears, then antenna and connections are NOT OK - Checkantenna and connections

Would it be possible to tune the radio's antenna poor reception for 2002 XG350L where is the antenna?

I believe I read somewhere that the XG350/L antenna was embedded in the windsheild. Some aftermarket head units can boost the signal quality better than the stock radio, or there are "antenna boosters" that install on the antenna cable and are 12 VDC powered. I haven't tried a separate booster, so I don't know how well, or if they work. I've had the best luck in other vehicles installing Pioneer head units with the "Super Tuner" tuners. [Revision:06/28/08] After looking through some documentation, the antenna is embedded in the rear window (not the front windshield) and there is a built-in/factory antenna booster mounted to the underside of the rear shelf (where the speakers mount.) I've seen at least one other person who had to replace the booster due to poor reception.
