    Default 2010 5083E Radio probelms

    Just purchased a 2010 John Deere 5083E Limited and it didn't come with a radio. So I went to best buy and bought a JVC KD-R540 Radio and the Volkswagen Adapter harness. Wired it all together and plugged in the Factory Antenna into the back. Turns on, but its not picking up any radio stations..... Could there be something wrong with the factory antenna? Or my wire job?


    Any input would be great, Thanks.

    Do you have a line filter on the power line?

    Could be a junk out of the box radio too. These days much of all electronic stuff is DOA. take it back after checking everything out one more time and swap it for another radio.
    For radio connection all you should need is power through a fuse and ground and two wires to each speaker. Most connect to a factory type harness, your VW? harness?
    Do you get any sound through the radio at all on Am or FM?
    Does it play CD's? MP3's, thumb drive(s)? or similar?

    Would you happen to have a part number or a link for the VW wiring harness?
    Thanks in advance

    I was going by this guys thread, http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/j...5m-deluxe.html

    Radio is brand New and works as it should, CD player works, Can plug my MP3 Player into it and that works. It picks up 1 FM station here 102.9 (Classic Rock, something my dad would listen too haha).

    Also this thread stated by a "JD3520Turbo" says that the Factory Plug for the radio is the same as a Volkswagen. http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/j...o-install.html

    Looks like I'm going to have to take the Cab interior off to find the antenna... Something I did not want to have to do. Or I could just use the USB slot and CD player. Decisions Decisions... Haha

    EDIT: VW Adapter: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Metra+-+...0&skuId=643628

    Sounds like you have the wiring, but not the antenna. Antenna is external to the cab.

    External eh? Hmmm, My problem may be that the Antenna is missing.... I'll have to check it out tomorrow. And if it is missing, Boy I sure will feel dumb for not looking...

    Seems you may NOT have an antenna built into your rig?
    Ask your selling dealer.
