  • Car antenna question

    I am trying to connect my radio extreme to my car's antenna. I have tried connecting the positive and negative wirs of the cars antenna wire to a 1/8 inch mini plug and I get no reception through my radioextreme. Is there some weird quirk that I am missing somewhere? BTW I drive a 2004 Nissan Altima.

    If this is a double post I'm sorry.

        yes i have tried it both ways. I would through a normal headunit back in there but it is rather difficult for me to do that so I am kinda keeping that as a last resort

          You need to find the antenna cable. It should be near the harness plug near ur radio. Then just buy a car antenna extension cable.
          Basically in ur stock radio there should be a black antenna that plugs into there. Now all you gotta do is Buy this cable below: and follow the rest

          Cut the male end off the cable and crimp on a standard F connector.

          Then just buy this adapter that converts F connector to 1/8 mono plug..

          When you are done you have a cable that has a female car antenna plug on one end and a 1/8 mono plug on the other. Plug your car antenna into the cable and the 1/8 mono plug into the black antenna connector on the RadioXtreme..

            Tie it in a knot
            Spit on it
            Yell obcenties directed towards it.
            Call it an Xtremly sucky peice crap
            Then throw it in the trash

                Yes I know. I did not buy it for the radio. I bought it to get my steering wheel controls working again. But hey if I can get this to work then I can kill two birds with one stone.
