When I replaced my antenna, I used the Haynes manual. The connection is down by the fuse box on the driver's side to the left of the brake pedal. I had to fish the new wire down the hole until I felt it come out of the bottom. I might work better if you attach a string to the old wire before you pull it out. Then attach the pulled end of the string to the new wire to help guide it back through down to the fuse box area. , good luck.
To change the antenna cable on a 1998 Buick LeSabre Limited, a person has to unscrew the old antenna cable from the back of the radio. Then pull the antenna wire out from under the dash and follow it to the antenna. Unscrew the old cable from the antenna. Screw in the new cable and thread it back under the dash in the same path as the old cable and screw it to the back of the radio.

Could be broke, or might just be a Hyundai radio. Check antenna, and cable from antenna to radio.
The antenna connection, for your 2000 Ford Taurus, is on the back of the radio. The antenna cable goes from the radio to the connection in the windshield.
1). If it's getting any FM stations, then the radio is OK.2). If it's getting the strong (nearby) stations but not the weak (far away) ones,then check the car's FM antenna, the connection between the antenna and thecable, the condition of the cable from the antenna to the radio, and the connectionbetween the cable and the radio.
You will have to replace that piece of the antenna cable.
trying to install a new antenna cable, from outside the truck to the radio, how do i do this
The instrument panel and the radio have to come out to replace the antenna. 1. The old antenna cable will be attached to the new cable to pull it through the mounting hole and into position. Do not pull the old cable all the way out when the antenna is first detatched. 2. Remove the instrument cluster. 3. Remove the radio. 4. Reach through the cluster hole and detatch the antenna lead from the clips. 5. Disconnect the antenna cable from the radio and detatch it from the heater box and remaining clip. 6. Remove the 2 screws that that secure the base of the antenna to the windshield pillar. 7. pull up on the antenna just far enough to expose the tape. 8. Cut the old antenna cable at the base and tape it to the radio end of the new one. 9. Remove the old antenna base and the insulating tube. 10.Guide the new antenna cable into place with the old one and install the new antenna base and tube. 11. Make sure the end of the antenna drain tube fits into it's hole, then attatch the antenna to the windshield pillar with the screws. 12. Position the antenna lead in it's clips. 13. The remainder of the installation is the reverse of the removal steps.
For the 1992 and 1994 models (and likely many other years), the antenna is attached to the roof of the vehicle by two Phillips screws. After removing these screws, the unit will slide out of its hole towards the rear of the vehicle. There should be a translucent white tube where the antenna slides into and a black cable. The black cable runs through the body of the car to the back of the radio. This can be seen from the passenger's side footwell and reached from the driver's footwell. Detach the cable from the back of the radio and attach a retrieval string or twine to the radio end of the cable. Remove the antenna assembly from the car roof, allowing the retrieval line to exit out of the mounting hole. Detach the line from the old antenna cable and tie it to the end of the new antenna cable. Use the retrieval line to thread the new cable through the car frame back into the passenger compartment. Detach your guide line and plug the new antenna cable into the radio and screw the new antenna assembly into its mounting hole on the roof.
The antenna or the cable between it and the radio probably has a short to the body of the van.
THE ANTENNA MAST OPERATES ON A PLASTIC CABLE WITH TEETH ON IT. WHAT HAPPENS IS THE TEETH WEAR OUT OR THE CABLE BREAKS. TO REMOVE THE OLD CABLE REMOVE THE NUT ON TOP AND TURN RADIO ON AND PULL OUT THE OLD CABLE. TO REPLACE THE NEW ONE STICK THE CABLE IN THE HOLE, TURN THE RADIO OFF AND THE MOTOR WILL PULL THE CABLE AND ANTENNA IN AND DOWN AND REPLACE THE NUT. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF THE OLD CABLE OUT. IF NOT YOU CAN ACCESS ANY BROKEN OFF PIECES BY REMOVING THE COVER PLATE ON THE SIDE OF THE ANTENNA MOTOR. I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS.
The radio antenna is a fine wire imbedded in the windshield. If your radio doesn't pull in any stations, but you get static then probably the cable came out of the back of the radio. If you recently got a new windshied it may have not had the antenna. You should be an antenna at an auto parts store and install it on the front fender.

Remove the decorative radio cover. Remove the radio retaining screws. Pull the radio out. Remove the wiring harness and the antenna cable from the back of the radio.
You can use co axial cable to make a very effective FM antenna. Simply just strip back the insulation and then separate the two parts of the cable. This will make a very good dipole antenna.
Slide the new radio into the radio slot. Attach the wiring harness and the antenna cable. Secure the radio with the retaining bolts.
There is a connection joint under the headliner near the antenna base on the roof, then a cable that runs toward the front of the car with an end near the radio unit itself
Your antenna lead-in is broken, and the radio isn't getting any signal. That's why it keeps scanning and can't hear anything. Check the connection from the antenna to the cable, and if that's OK, then you'll have to replace the cable from the antenna to the radio. You did connect the antenna to it when you were checking it in the first car, right ? You can quickly test this hypothesis: With a radio in the first car, where no radio works, connect the power, but don't connect the car's antenna to it. Instead, stick the end of a different piece of wire ( 3 to 6 ft long) into the center hole of the antenna connector on the radio, and see if that makes it possible for the radio to start hearing things.
By removing the spare tire, moving the air compressor out of the way, then removing the plastic cover above the Radio Module. The X5 antenna connection is on the radio module. You will see 2 connections- the bigger one is the antenna that gives you signal. The smaller connection is a 12v cable that provides power to the antenna amp.
no. first check fuses. check ground. check for voltage to memory, and switched power to radio. the only time the antenna would affect the radio in that manner is if the ground was connected to the antenna.
The antenna circuit is the most likely cause of the static. check to see that the antenna cable is plugged into the radio, and there are no loose wires.
