    Post fm modulator problems

    I recently hooked up my fm modulator but have run into a problem. It doesn't work! I have double checked all of the connections and don't know what to do next. My radio just gives me static when I tune to the specified station. Any tips or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I would take the FM-modulator back, and buy a stereo with Auxillary in.
    Its not that much more, and it has much better Quality.
    I had an FM-modulater for about a week, and the quality was that of a crappy AM station.
    It kept fading in and out, left and right.

    Check on the box... There should be a small switch that determines which frequency to broadcast on, it may be set wrong. Also try (with the FM modulator on) scanning the stations to see if it picks it up.
