some sort of bad connection inside the radios socket
or bad coax
check the antenna with an ohm meter
to see if the coax is shorted out
and also that there is continutity between the center pin of the coax radio plug and the antenna
you can demount the radio and stick a bit of wire in as a quick test
if you get the signal then its something coax related
if not its something to do with the front end of the radios reciever circuit
and you need a radio engineer that fixes car radios and cb etc
they will make it work for sure
i could in ten mins flat ...possibly a transistor has failed
or a bad connection as it comes and goes ...
buy the radio kit ,sold in all autostores, even walfart.
the antenna is problematic if the OEM used NON STANDARD connectors. (1 pin plug is Universal since 50s)
but there are places that sell adaptors. for antennas.
for suzuki , no idea at all,
Make sure the antenna is up and not broken, some of these have the power antenna and some dont, if the antenna is up then you will need to check the cable that connects to back off the radio but i doubt thats the problem unless someone was working in that area of the dash, the most common problem is the antenna is broken or not up. good luck.
If its a "fixed" non adjustable antenna, just sand it down with steel wool and wipe it with silicone once in a while to keep rust off. If there are two "flats" on a conical base, most times it can be unscrewed and replaced. Antennas that slide in and out or electric antennas cannot be removed this way.
dont be fooled by your voltage reading the fault lays within the arial itself i worked on jaguars for many years from an appprentice up the reason the arial wont come out fully is because it probably needs a good clean using wd40 and a clean rag with the arial extended start from the bottom and spray and wipe upwards
