Default 2004 Aero Radio Oddities

Hi, Everybody,
It's amazing: I haven't posted because nothing has gone wrong!
This radio is very nice except that reception is execrable. I wonder if the signal amp is bad or the radio is weak. Last week I passed my hand near the faceplate, and the radio lost reception, and this happens every pass of the hand.
Then, while reprogramming buttons, I pushed the scan button to bring up manual "M" tuning, and the engine stalled.
Thanks for any help.
Bill

Is your car a sedan or a wagon? Antenna system is different on the two.


The sedan seems to have a couple of possible systems. In any case, all the antennas use an amplifier. Also metallic window tint would do a number on radio reception.


If the car stalls every time you select manual tuning, you need an exorcist, or at least a new radio!

Hi, Ed,
Thanks for your reply.
It's a wagon. I suppose it's time for some old-fashioned troubleshooting. UGH.
Luckily it only stalled once.

The wagons have an antenna on each side glass of the cargo area, and it intelligently chooses which provides a better signal on FM.


There's quite a bit of information in WIS on the system, and how to troubleshoot it.


Reception in my wagon is perfectly fine. Even the weather band (which your car probably does not have).

I'll have to look into the WIS files.
Oddly, I've had Peugeots and Renaults among other cars over the course of my lifetime, and I managed through necessity to gather quite a tool collection. Now, since I have these Saabs, despite their alleged quirkiness, my tools are getting rusty.
