Ok...I'm doing my audio setup now.
16ga twisted speaker wire that I'm not ready to try and get thru the door harness.
But anyway, I have an issue.
I got the metra radio adapter.
And well, I've relocated my radio below the hvac.
And well, the harness works...but the weird thing is the radio station is clear an not clear at random times.
Sometimes I can give the radio a mean look and it'll clear up.
O I can shift my weight in the car and it clears up.

I've come to the conclusion that the harness is the problem...I can touch where our harness plugs into the adapter and everything is fine.

Is there something I can do to remedy this without touching the harness all the time or giving my radio a mean look?

Besides pulling the radio and checking the connectors, there's not much I can see you do. Did you connect the antenna power? Our cars use an amplified antenna.

yea... I'm a geezer and got burned on that myself..... back in the day, if you saw a lead that said antenna power you could assume it meant a "powered antenna" (as in up/down), but today it means just that.... a powered antenna, if you don't hook it up the antenna becomes almost useless.
