I was working on my carputer and thought to myself... my remote distance has been dwindling, and I've tried 2 fobs with good batteries. Even with the carputer out of the car the reception wasn't the greatest. Thinking back to day one I don't recall having as good of reception as I did tonight after this little change.

So on with it!

Since I don't have a radio in my car anymore this was a really simple change, if you're still using your radio (AM/FM) you will need to pick up a cheap cable. The cable can be found here - Ebay Link

It's an antenna splitter - 1 female incoming, 2 male outgoing.

Essentially this involves:

- removing the dash bezel/fascia (
- (re)moving the hvac controls out of the way
- removing the stereo to access the antenna plug
- unplugging the antenna plug
- attaching the splitter
- plugging one end back to the radio
- finding the ETACS
- unplugging the white end antenna wire
- plugging the other end of the splitter (you may need an extension, depending on the length of splitter you get)
- Next up, walk a long way away from the car and see how well your remote works

Then you get to put the stuff back together (radio, hvac, fascia)
