Bravo FM stations poor

Hello,

What this mean? FM is very poor in my 2012 model Bravo.

It looks like the plastic sheathing on the antenna cable has either worn off or been cut on something and the antenna is contacting something metallic. You will need to remove the headunit and investigate the cabling behind it.

Re: Bravo FM stations poor

The thing you've taken pictures of is the headunit The slots on the sides require a special tool in order to remove it. I'm not familiar with the Bravo specifically, but the antenna cable is usually the thickest single cable, so should be easy to spot, and also be fairly easy to tell if it's damaged.

Re: Bravo FM stations poor

Oh okey😁 when I moving antenna on roof it was OK for while. How do I remove the black "box" on roof. Maybe failure is there under the roof. What this ""cct" means?

Re: Bravo FM stations poor

I opened the head unit. Antenna cable with cover was OK and normal. No problem solved. Any good idea for next move?

Re: Bravo FM stations poor

You need to take it one piece at a time:
- check the HU with antenna disconnected,
-then leave the HU and antenna connected, and disconnect the antenna cable on the roof (covered by the headliner)

I'd look into replacing the aerial and the support.
It might be a case of the antenna cable needing to be replaced.... but i think that is less probable.

Re: Bravo FM stations poor

Remove the connection to the head unit, and remove the connection from the base of the antenna.

Then carry out a continuity/resistance check on one end of the cable between the earth and the core with a multimeter.

You should get an open circuit
