I got this car 2 wks ago. It is a Limited with all the add ons.
How do I tell if it has the Stability Control package which uses ABS to
correct a skid or 4 wheel drift.
I don't think it was standard in the Limited, maybe an option ? ( hope it
was standard, would love to have it )
Also the windscreen has a heated wire on the passenger side at the top, but
none on the driver's side.
This must be the heated w'screen, just wondered why it doesn't cover the
left half as well.
Diversity Antenna System
The diversity antenna system uses both front and back windows with an
integral antenna built between the glass layers of the windshield and as an
applique to the rear glass. Any damage to the antenna requires replacing the
A diversity antenna system is designed to deliver the best radio signal
reception possible. Two antennas are used to form a diversity system. The
primary antenna is part of the rear window and looks similar to the defogger
grid. This antenna receives both AM an FM signals. The secondary antenna is
part of the front windshield and receives only FM signals.
The antenna reception signals are sorted out by the radio antenna module.
The radio antenna module is enabled when the radio is turned on. When the AM
or FM band is selected on the radio, the antenna module connects the rear
window antenna directly to the radio. In addition, when the FM band is
selected an enable signal is sent to the antenna module. Superimposed on
this enable signal is the strength of the signal being received by the radio
tuner. The antenna module now performs two functions. It switches between
the front and rear antennas, monitoring the radio signal strength and
combines both signals and phase aligns them to create one strong signal.
