Re: 430N RHB - Check Antenna Sys

It's got to be a pinch somewhere. I am hoping they order a new antenna, base, & cable and we hook up before installation. If it works then voila! If not then its software I guess.

I did the update. while updating i followed the cable from the rear antenna to the front. mine goes down the left rear pillar down the left side under the left lower trim under the door openings all the way to the front under the drivers side dash . if you have a car trim set very easy to follow. haven't put the trim back on trying to find a cut or pinch. will update later

Re: 430N RHB - Check Antenna Sys

Wow! Wonder what caused that? What is the location of the cut?

I followed mine from rear and it goes down my passenger side. I couldn't get past the rear seat, so ill be curious to know if yours is at a pinch point.

As for reconnecting, I wonder if a standard coax plier could work that small for striping and then order any connector you want.

it wasn't ran along with the other factory wires which makes me think maybe the radio was added at the dealership not factory. i removed the side panel in the cargo area and found it being smashed into a hole where the retaining clip goes. when i pulled it out it broke into two. i stripped it and connected it with a cheap connector i found in my tool box. i now have one to two bars on my gps signal but still won't find any satellites.

i'm going to try and do a better job at connecting the two and see if that works.

my guess is yours probably got pinched or cut somewhere along the line also.

Re: 430N RHB - Check Antenna Sys

I think mine is too. The roof was repaired for hail damage and I have a sneaky suspicion a panel is pinching it now seeing yours.

Re: 430N RHB - Check Antenna Sys

I ended up buying a $10 GPS only antenna off ebay and GPS now works which means my antenna line is cut somewhere too.

Great job on the cheap fix, it would bother me inside not knowing where the cut is though lol.

Re: 430N RHB - Check Antenna Sys

It does bother me, luckily though I don't subscribe to Sirius, but more over I took half the interior apart and traced it best I could. The cut has to be under the passenger seat.
