Jaguar xtype 2005 radio

Asked by Mar 11, 2017 at 04:25 PM about the 2005 Jaguar X-TYPE 3.0L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I recently bought a used jaguar xtype
2005 and it had no radio in it. So I went to
the junkyard and got a radio off of a
wrecked jaguar xtype. I just installed it and
everything works but when I turn it on all I
hear is static from the radio. Would you
know how to get this working?

Did you plug in the antenna wire? It should be a large dia. black wire with a chrome tip that plugs in separate from the wiring harness plug.


I think Tom has it. No reception equal no antenna
