Re: Poor Radio reception and fan speed?


Brett, and it looks great on my vehicle.

I had a funny feeling at the time, specially as you had said they had to order one.
at least you will pay less for it.
(And I am not going to apologise!)

Re: Poor Radio reception and fan speed?


 I have just returned from a quick run to Canberra and the new antenna worked a treat on both am and fm. Where as before I lost reception between Cowra and Boorowa, now it is clear all the way to Yass.
 I highly recommend it for anyone driving in the country and wanting better reception.

 Andrew, thanks mate for putting me onto this.

Re: Poor Radio reception and fan speed?


Finally got one of the Aepro AP 153 aerials.
They suit Barina & several other cars & have the 5mm screw stub at the bottom.
Down our road there are high voltage lines & I always used to get crackling. This afternoon it seemed quite clear & non crackly.
 Will test tomorrow on a road a few ks away where reception fades away due to hills & report back but it does seem much clearer already.

posticon Re: Poor Radio reception and fan speed?


I wish I had read this thread before I bought a new antenna from Nissan. About $230 (including base and wiring)! It's still no good. The signal was OK on the original unit but was crap when I changed head units (double-din Blaupunkt with GPS). My auto electrician had a look and said it was the antenna, so I ordered a new one and he fitted it on Wednesday. It was OK at first but it soon went back to fading in and out on FM (particularly WSFM) and sometimes cuts out of a couple of seconds at a time. The tuner will also suddenly jump from 101.7 (WSFM) down to 99 point something! I gave up and just listened to CDs or my iPhone. However, today I took it back to where I bought the head unit and, lo and behold, the signal was much better, the closer I got to the city and the problem could not be replicated in the store at Petersham. emoticon It behaved itself almost all the way home until I hit a pothole coming off the M4 near Blacktown - then it started playing up again!

I'm at a loss what to do! emoticon

New head unit you say Baz ?
First thing is to check that when the new head unit was installed there was power connected to the aerial signal amp. There is a wire for it in the standard loom but if the adapter leads from your new unit to the loom does not have this connected then the amp will not be working and this could cause loss of signal.

Thanks Kevin. Ryda had the whole unit out today but said they couldn't find anything wrong but I don't know if they knew to check for that. Would I be able to check for this connection myself? I don't really want to go back to Ryda.

For your model Baz, you should have a Red/Yellow wire in the main harness plug for the stereo fed 12V via the ACC or the Antenna Output from the new head unit.
This supplies the 12V to the antenna amplifier so that the signal is boosted through to the antenna plug for the radio.

To check it yourself you will need to remove the surround and the head unit, then check the wiring harness supplied with the head unit to make sure there is a wire connected to the mating pin of the main wiring loom which has the Red/Yellow wire in it.

Re: Poor Radio reception and fan speed?


So I installed one of those Eonon head units, it works fine, reverse camera etc but of course radio reception is now non existent. Obviously the antenna booster is not getting 12v anymore. I purchased an Aerpro Nissan loom for plug n play, so it interfaces between the Eonon loom and Nissan loom. When I remove the head unit I can see the power to to antenna amp in my T30 is a yellow/red wire, and when I trace it back to the Eonon unit it is connected to the Power Ant on the Eonon loom, which is obviously not supplying voltage to the yellow/red antenna booster wire.

I had one of those radio booster amps already so I spliced into the 12v ACC on the Eonon loom then connected it to the antenna socket on the Eonon unit, this made no difference to reception, antenna amp was definitely receiving 12v denoted by a led on the unit, I thought this would work, it didn't.

So my question what is going to be the best option to get reception back again? Should I just bridge blue Power ant wire with 12V ACC on the Eonon loom? Or remove the power ant wire from the Eonon connector and attach it directly to the 12v ACC for switched 12v. The blue wire through the looms and connectors leads back to the yellow/red wire powering the roof mounted antenna booster.
