It sounds as if the antenna has become disconnected from the radio. You will have to pull the radio out of the dash and make sure the antenna is still connected there, then check and make sure it is still connected to at the fender well and in between.

    All you should have to do is remove the trim panel from in front of the radio and remove the screws that are holding the radio in.

The fuse might be built into the cable to the lighterand/or radio. It's called "fusable link", this type of fuse looks like a cable. Or another type of fusable link might be in the fuse box under the hood near the firewall.

'94crown Vic radio stopped working. Checked fuse under drivers side, checked the ground wire, and those are good. All the lights on the radio come on and everything seems to be lit up, but there is no...


are all the radio function dead.?????
what are they, radio, AM and FM dead, cassette, CD,?
if only the radio is dead. (static) then the antenna is bad or its lead in coax wire is bad. or fell off. etc.
the amp (audio is good) as you heard the static.
you can unplug the antenna, wire, from radio and plug in any
lenght of wire to test the radio, any radio can be bench tested this way. and is in any shop.

its very rare today for any head end radio unit to be only a radio.
so do the other features (other audio sources work?) try them.
if they work then the antenna is bad.

Radio sound low and squeeky, works good in summertime


The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.

It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.

Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.

So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.

If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.

PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.

PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.

Radio static


Check your antenna. If the mast is not extended, your reception will be limited. try an AM station, usually a local AM station will still come in even with the mast down. Have you tried playing a CD (if equipped) ? If that plays well, you've confirmed lack of reception as the problem. If the mast is extended and you still do not have reception, the antenna plug my have come out of the back of the radio. The requires removing the radio to check.

take out the speaker in question and test it.
a 9v battery is good enough to 'burp' it.
if it makes a scratchy noise when you put power to it then you have a short in the voice coil.
Burping a speaker is just a short power up. Don't hold power to it.
Tap it on and off like a music note measure.

1992 Honda Civic Radio has only static


if the tape player works fine and no static u most likely have a problem with your ground,check to see if your radio is getting good ground and also check the antenna unscrew the two bolts on top of the car and carefully pull the antenna upwards and check the wire connected to a piece of metal where the screw goes (if good) add another ground to your radio.
