    Ok,i changed my pionner DEH-P3100 for a pionner DEH-P6800MP,i really like my new HU except for one thing i have a pretty bad FM reception.
    i have an electronic antenna(dakota) i put a UPR delete antenna in the hole of the oem antenna,i like the clean look!

    What can i do to solve my problem?

    A couple of options.. either find an inline signal amplifier and install it. check all of your connections would be the first thing I'd do. You can find an antenna that mounts to the top of your windshield from advance auto parts that works exceptionally well and it almost out of sight for that clean look. or return your head unit for another one, it may have a manufacturer's defect in it or something.. could be a lot of things. probably have something to do with the head unit if it was fine before you swapped them out. I got a brand new one for a friend in trade for my cowl hood and i put it in and had no reception, took it back and got another and installed it and viola it worked. Just some ideas! later.

    +1 I'd check the connections. On my headunit the antenna connection came loose while i was sliding it back into the dash and i got horrible reception until i reconnected it completely

    The anteanna delete is just that....a delete. This is made for NOT having a radio or not needing the am/fm part of your radio. You will get basically no reception. I will be more than happy to exchange your delete for a functional 12 or 14" shorty anteanna.
