That 's not good ! Probably have to replace every module on the vehicle. Take it to a qualified repair shop where they have a professional type scan tool that can detect if all the control modules will communicate .

I went to a car wash yesterday and now the radio in my 1998 Acura CL has lots of static on it. What is the solution?

There is a chance your antenna is loose. Try to tighten it and see if that helps. It might need adjusted

Rusted external mounted antenna

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.

Antenna sinks while radio is on

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
