    Good day. I have a radio in my Iveco that does not receive stations well. I know that there was a similar topic, but it's hard for me to conclude what to do. I will not give the brand of the radio because it is probably not important. I bought an amplifier and maybe it would be better, but I'm not sure where to connect the red cable.

    And I'm also surprised that I can't see the antenna anywhere on the car, is it normal? I attach photos.

    Check the antenna installation.

    This is a 12V power supply, the easiest way to connect it is where 12V appears after turning on the radio - the cable is usually labeled "automatic antenna", often blue, in the ISO A pin 5.

    Normal in a car without a radio ;)
    If there is no antenna, the amplifier will help as much as incense would be helpful to a dead man. There is a chance that someone used the rear window heating as the antenna ...

    How to check antenna installations? My cables are not described. Does the picture show which cable can be 12v? There is no rear window for me. Please explain to me somehow what I can do. Will I find an additional cable with voltage to connect the amplifier or do I need to connect to the one that supplies the radio.

    First, find the antenna (look under that deflector on the roof - it should be on the passenger side). Then check the continuity of connections.

    You got a suggestion for the pin in the cube, and you can buy a voltmeter for PLN 20.

    The description is as simple as building a flail. It might be easier to drive to a specialist - he will have "Auto-Radio", "Car-Audio" or similar on his sign ...

    Read my previous comprehension post. Cables giving 12V in the area a lot, but do not choose a constantly powered one because it will end up firing the car on a string.

    How to check the continuity of connections. And tell me how to use a voltmeter. I am looking for a plus with one cable and the other one ...? I think this is the device? Or maybe an ordinary car test tube is enough? So choose the one that turns off after removing the key? greetings

    An ohmmeter.

    They didn't teach at school? Start by reading the instructions.

    First set the correct measuring range (20V DC). One cable to ground and the other is looking for 12V. Don't make a short circuit because you'll be looking for fuses ...

    What device? Write brighter ...

    Do not try to attach yourself to the wire of the automatic antenna with a test tube with a bulb.

    wesoly2828 wrote:

    Yes, the one where the voltage disappears when you remove the key.

    BTW - did you find the antenna? Without it, the amplifier will not help.

    How to know which cable is the mass. I know it's strange, but I also don't know which cable not to touch so as not to make a short circuit. WHAT IS BTW?

    Added after 3 [minutes]:

    I wasn't going to do it, but why can't the test tube be attached to the antenna cable? Will it have any consequences. I asked about checking the voltage, not the antenna

    Usually it is black (but not sure). You also have weight on the radio housing (of course, like the cubes connected) and on each bolt screwed into the body sheet.

    You can touch anyone with a voltmeter, but if you put the tip between the ground and + 12V contacts, you will cause a short circuit.

    BTW - by the way - by the way ;)

    The automatic antenna cable gets power from the radio, usually with a low current capacity. You can use the test tube to burn the transistor keying this voltage or the switch contacts on the radio.
