    SVXdc Thanks for posting that info on the 12v to the antenna. I just installed a new headunit and I have been going nuts trying to determine why the radio went from fine to suck!. I am going to splice that wire together tomorrow! I dont know what I would do without the infinite wisdom of the forums!!!

    Most aftermarket head units have a blue wire for power antenna operation. I believe that this is the wire that supplies power to the antenna amp that SVXdc is refering to.

    When I installed my Pioneer head unit, I noticed that the radio signal would come in and out. I jostled the wiring harness a bit and it works fine. The electrical connections must not have been contacting properly.

    I have the same problem with my 05, the antenna gets lousy reception of my favorit stations. So I turn to my always helpfull manual and: (I kid you not)

    "If reception continues to be unsatisfactory, swtich to a stronger station"
