Question Jeep Liberty 2005 Antenna removal

Hi,

Does anyone know how to disconnect the factory antenna from a stock stereo in a 2005 Jeep Liberty?

I am sick of the annoying static and constantly having to find new FM stations.

I don't want to have to physically remove the antenna so I was wondering if the wiring in the back of the stock stereo can be disconnected easily. Is it a plug in or do I have to cut a wire?

Before I take out the dash I want to make sure.



Any help would be great.

yeah, just pull out the factory headunit and UNPLUG the AM/FM antenna from the rear of the radio.

these vehicle specific mounting bracket instructions from both Bracketron and Pro-Fit will aid you in reaching the hex nut/philips screws for the removal of the headunit:

the entire dash trim bezel comes off from around the radio and temperature controls:



just unplug the antenna from the rear:

Ok thanks it was easy to do but...

No sound now...

I kind of figured it out half way through before I screwed everything back on. With no antennna the FM transmitter has nothing to transmit to so removing the antenna cable is not a good option as now nothing is picked up by the radio.


I was thinking maybe running some sort of wire maybe I will start a different thread on this...

wait, you're telling me that when you unplug the antenna from the headunit that it picks up NO FM reception, not even the 88.1 or whatever you had the PNP unit broadcasting at?

that's a first for me. worse case scenario, if people don't want to spend the $20 on the FM Relay and have static or competing radio stations on their broadcast frequency, the unplugging of the AM/FM antenna simply eliminates any outside source from entering the headunit via the factory antenna, but it would still pick up the PNP broadcast, it can't be more than 1 foot or 2 a way.

especially if you're using your FM antenna wire on the PNP dock, i've never had experience with the FM antenna wire being unplugged having adverse effects on the PNP broadcast functionality.
