The effects of signal modulations on the molecular high-order harmonic generations in \(\hbox {H}_{2}^{+ }\) and \(\hbox {T}_{2}^{+}\) have been theoretically investigated. It is found that with the introduction of the XUV pulse, due to the absorption of the extra XUV photons in the recombination process, multiplateaus on the harmonic spectra, separated by the XUV photon energy can be found. Moreover, this multiplateau structure is insensitive to the wavelength of the XUV pulse. In shorter pulse duration, the intensities of the multiplateaus from \(\hbox {H}_{2}^{+}\) are higher than those from \(\hbox {T}_{2}^{+}\); while in longer pulse duration, the opposite results can be found. Finally, by changing the delay time of the XUV pulse, the signal modulations (including the amplitude and the frequency modulations) of the multiplateaus can be controlled.
