Actually, you may not need to buy anything. The Escape's antenna cable is actually two cables. There's another connector inside the instrument panel, to the right of the glove box. Open the glove box door and squeeze the sides so that the glove box door can swing down. You'll see the cable running along the glove box hinge area. Follow it to the right and look for the connector.

The *******s may have pulled the antenna cable so hard that they unplugged or loosened that connector, and that would explain why only certain stations are powerful enough to hear (it might just be coincidental that the powerful ones are more toward the center).

Try to find that connector and see if it's unplugged or loose. If that doesn't work, and if you want to replace the entire antenna assembly, I can post the instructions and part numbers.

HTH!

Hmmm...the DVD shop manuals aren't really clear on the location of that second connector, and it looked like it was in the upper kick panel area. Try removing the fender splash shield to see if the connector is between the firewall and the mast.

4 ohms for ground actually sounds high. If the ground is good, it should be zero or very close to zero.
