Default Horrible Radio Reception
Anybody else having horrible radio reception issues? I had a shop do the wiring for my fog lights and my radio reception has become horrible. Is there something that I can easily check that might have become disconnected when they wired the fog lights? Everything seems to be okay at the antenna. It isn't like I can't pick up anything, but I lose reception on quite a few channels in areas where nobody else has issues.

Check to make sure all the wires from your install are a decent distance away from your antenna and or antenna cable. If upfitters were used this may be your issue due to the upfitter wires close proximity to the antenna.

I never thought about that. I will do some checking/testing and report back. It would be great if that fixes the issue. Thanks for your help!!!
