Car radio question?

6 posts in this topic

99 Explorer has bad reception. Took radio out, unplugged antenna, plugged back in. Got a little better w/ it in. Worth messing with, or buy new one. Am comes in better than fm, and the higher down the dial you go, the worse it gets. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

I think it might be worth tracing the antenna cable back to the antenna to see if there are any corrosion issues.

What I would do is plug a different antenna in and see if it gets better. If not its the radio! But I have a test antenna!

I dont know about the Explorers, but many other models have another connection out near the antenna. Trace the cable from the antenna back to the cab to see if there is one. I have found this connection to be the problem more times than the inside one.

Thanks again everyone. I will try tracing the antenna, and will post my findings.

That connection should be behind the glove box. You can also pop the cover off of the mast base, take the screws out of the base, pull the base up and make sure the connection is good there. They have a tendency to get corroded.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
