Lincoln Town Car Signature L: HEY PENLAND! I HAVE TWO 2003…

Customer Question
HEY PENLAND! I HAVE TWO...
HEY PENLAND! I HAVE TWO 2003 LINCOLN TOWN CARS AND THE RADIOS BASICALLY SUCK. AM HAS ALWAYS BEEN LOW SENSITIVITY AND CANNOT FIND A STATION UNLESS THE STATION IS JUST A FEW MILES AWAY EVEN THOUGH THE STATION OUTPUT SIGNAL IS SUBSTANTIAL, NOW THE FM IS HAVING A PROBLEM RECEIVING THE SIGNAL EVEN WHEN THERE IS SUBSTANTIAL OUTPUT. MY WIFES CAR IS A 1996 WINDSTAR AND THE RADIO RECEPTION IS MUCH BETTER.WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE OR IS THERE A PLACE THAT CAN CAN CONIFGURE THESE RADIOS SO THEY WORK. YOU'D THINK THAT AN INVESTMENT OF $65000 WOULD GET YOU A GOOD RADIO!!

The issue is not the radio, its the antennae. With a better antennae and a booster you can resolve these poor reception concerns. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
