TJ Antenna Cable problem

I have an 04 TJ with RBK radio, was working fine but then I picked up an RB4 dirt cheap.. I installed it in the TJ and it worked fine .... Apart from the fact it couldn't receive any radio stations on FM or AM. So I put back the RBK and ... Same problem.


I think I might have pulled on the antenna cable from the metal center than the black outer when I was trying to disconnect it from the RBK. so the cable center isn't mating with the radio anymore .... But could it be anything else, how hard would it be to fix the connector if that is it?

Wish I would have seen this earlier. I had a defective antenna cable as well when I put in an aftermarket stereo in my 04. Crtuchfield sent me a new one.

The cables out there are cheap. My reception was much better with the factory stereo.
