Question about Cars & Trucks
Radio plays on AM and and does not play on FM.change the FM Antena in rear of car and STILL do not play.
Have the radio checked out as the band change switch is not working. Try going into the mode /menu section of the radio and adjusting it there . Changing antenna does nothing as the radio works on either band with the same antenna

if you have a bluetooth phone paired to the vehicle, try deleting all bluetooth devices. Sometimes a battery reset can cause bluetooth synchronizing issues.

it sounds like the Multi information display has failed (MID). It is the long display with all the radio controls on it. If you want to find a known good part they are really easy to swap out. Just remove the radio knob and if you look down in there, there is a place to put a T10 (i think maybe bigger or smaller) torx T10 screwdriver.if you turn it while pulling back slightly on the screwdriver it should come right out. It usually is the component that fails but as always you may want to check your fuses.

SOURCE: Radio won't play
You have had a loss of power to the radio (such as when the car battery is changed), or the radio has been replaced or disconnected from the car's wiring harness. This is a theft deterrent because the stolen radio is useless to someone without the activation code. This code can be obtained from a dealer or it is found on a small plastic card that is part of the original owner's materials. Number is usually 5 digits. When you turn on the radio and the readout says 'CODE ', enter the number by using the numbered station selection buttons (which are numbered 1-2-3-4-5-6). If the radio beeps when you are entering the number, start over. If it keeps beeping, you have the wrong code number (which might be the case if the radio has been replaced). Note: The 'CODE' button located on the small computer face to the right of the radio (with the date, mileage, temperature, etc) has NOTHING to do with the process or the radio 'CODE'.

It may not be disconnected but may have a break in cable somewhere, or bad connection. I'd be tempted to buy a cheap one at parts store that will plug in to rear of stereo and just try it. Unwrap it carefully & that way, it can go back & say wrong one, if not needed.
