Antenna connection for windshield replacement

Recommended Posts

I had the windshield replaced on my 2004 Cayenne Turbo.

Now the radio has no AM or FM reception with the Navi working fine. Everything was OK before swap.

Where would I find the windshield antenna connections to confirm whether they are hooked up?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had seen in another post that the antenna is located in the the spoiler. However no work was done in the rear of the car, so I don't think the cause is in that location at this point.

Anyone know what connections (if any) normally would need to be disconnected and thus possibly failed to be reconnected during a windsheild replacement?

Are Antenna wires routed near the windshield and possibly cut during its removal?

Any other potential PSM failures known to case radio only not to get reception? Everything else on the PSM works fine.

Thanks for any and all input.

There is only one connection you have to disconnect, the ambient temp. sensor for the air conditioning, which is located on the bottom side of the black plastic trim under the wipers. The rain sensor connection ( if you got one ) in the inner rear mirror area can stay in place, disconnection is not really needed if you leave the interior trim on the A-pillars and upper cross member in place, while cutting the front windscreen out with a metal string. I don't no which system they have used, but you can always take a look behind the right A-pillar trim.
