So since I bought the Magnum, Radio has been nothing but 'Static'...
I decided to go fishing today, and found this... Any help on what to do ? What this will cost to have fixed ?
So I thought this was the radio wire, plugged it in, and NOTHING.. So I saw that it was tapped, took it apart, and put the wire in and BAM, radio worked fine.
The little wire broke though (at the end, so now it is too short) It got stuck in the black piece shown
Wire that broke at the end, above my knuckle is where it needs to be plugged in -
NEXT; What are these two, white + Blue wires ? For my front or rear DVD ? I have the stock NAV, but there is a switch in the Ash tray to have it play up front as well...
Guessing it comes from this ??
LASTLY; My front + rear 6X9`s are Pioneer (I have the NAV with the 6 BA Audio System in it)
All the speakers work but my front left, so I thought it was blown, after trying different speakers i have to test it (Infinity, and another brand) I couldnt get any speakers to work...
So I went ahead and tore my Van door panel off, and wired my 6X9 Pioneer into that system, and the speaker works Flawlessly.
So I tried getting it to work in the Mangum, but NOTHING...
Any Ideas ? I left the speaker out for now, because I dont know where to start. Pictures of Speaker, then wiring thats left (I wrapped the two in Electrical tape)
I wouldnt know what to do without this forum.

Anyone ?? I can see the dealer charging me an ARM and a leg...
looks like someone had an aftermarket stereo in there at some point.
the antenna.. the easiest way to fix it (happened on my 300c) is to splice on a normal radio antenna end (the chrysler one is a specific one for chrysler) then get a normal to chrylser converter lead, (usually about 6 inches) any mom/pop stereo shop can probably handle it without issue. I did mine myself, but I have coax crimping tools..
the reason I say to splice on a normal connection and then get the converter is because you will go to hell and back trying to find the correct chrysler end AND the tool to crimp it, easier to find the converter cable.
as for the speaker, my guess would be that as stated, someone had an aftermarket stereo in the car, and the speaker lead is probably cut somewhere under the dash, most likely by the OEM amp, the door speakers in the LX cars were bass speakers, and a lot of people cut them to put in inline converter in so they can wire up a subwoofer amp, and it looks to me like that is exactly what is going on there.
if you were in SoCal I would say come by my place and I would fix it up for you, but you are a tad bit far.. Try a good mom and pop stereo shop, probably cost about $200 but they should be able to fix it all.

Thanks for the reply man...
Guess ill wait this one out, maybe look for a kicker sub.
Bummer that its all messed up
Where is the amp located ? Am dying without my stereo playing at its full potential!
Help is greatly appreciated (as I am not very good with audio systems)
Its underneath the steering wheel behind the plastic knee bolster. And thats one heck of a hack job.

Here's some info on that box: www.tvandnav2go.com - Automotive Automobile Video & Navigations - Navigation Systems - Navigation Conversions - Digital Clusters - Navigtion / Video Integration Upgrades - Reverse Camera Integrations - Navigation Integrations - Auto TV - Auto Navigat
It looks to be a video input to your NAV unit. When the blue wire gets 12v, the standard NAV display is replaced by whatever video input you have connected to that interface box. Sounds like the switch you talk about is toggling that. Typically used for backup cameras and that blue wire would be connected to the back-up lights to trigger it automatically. In your case the switch in the ashtray toggles it manually.
I'd have to look up the wiring for the audio and see if there's anything that might help you there.
Just came out of TV & STEREO, and they know ****-all. Showed them pictures and everything (trying to get the FM radio working) he doesn't know of any adapters/wire I can use to extent the length, since the end broke off
