    I have a sony cdx-gt920u radio i have no signal for the radio. Cd and aux are fine. I have an in glass antenna. Is it wireless? If so how will i get my radio to pick up the signal? If it is not then where is the connection wire.

    Chip, it sounds like you didn’t hook up your antenna cable to the back of the radio. Double check that you hooked the antenna cable to your aftermarket radio. Hope this helps. Good luck.
