    My radio stations come in like shhh.t!

    I have a 2001 impala and my radio stations hardly come in. I put a aftermarket radio in and only 1 sor 2 stations come clear but eventually go out. My windows are tinted but my buddy has the exact same car with tinted windows and his stations work fine. I dont know what could be the problem . the radio or what?

    Did you double check the antenna wire?

    make sure that connection is good. Do you have ant in the glass? If so you need to connect the power ant wire on the HU as most cars have a signal booster...

    factory harness will have a wire for the ant booster. Did you use a harness adapter, if so did you connect the rem ant wire?

    Never ran into this issue, just asking for future reference.

    NP, happened on my Altima a few years ago, that's how I figured it out as I'd never had that problem before...

    My Buick has a factory antenna amplifier. I have to connect the remote antenna wire in the harness to the HU remote else it doesn't turn on.
