I would get the alternator checked, sounds like its leaking ac current which can also kill the battery

    This answer is absolutely illogical. The alternator has nothing whatsoever to do with radio reception.

Radio has static and tries to pick up just one station a m and fm. 2005 Acura Can it be antennae


The alternator is most likly the problem. If it was ok before and you had the alternator replaced the problem should be the new alternator. The above answer is if static is your problem. If you can not pick up stations there is a good chance that you have a antenna problem.

2013 Santa Fe Sport radio on am 670 cuts out and back in with varied times off. If I toggle to the next station and back it is there right away. The station does not have a problem on my other car. This is...


cuts out ?
well, all FM radios cut out for.:
1: weak station.
2: stereo can not be held in properly( can be bypassed on most RAD , pick mono)
3: AGC drop out, same as #1

on better radios (RTM) you can defeat these default features.
set the FM to mono channel mode, and now you hear all stations.
also kill the AGC mode. this allows you to hear
the station. and static or both. like a Marconi radio of days of old.
modern radios are programmed to blank weak stations.
tis a fact. im a tech and tuned these features, for 50 years.

ok the fix,
1: move closer to station
2: get a better antenna (vast choices)
3: go to station and turn the gain knob up and get arrested by FCC.

My radio only works for a short distance then goes staticky, also can't set the time


the operator guide in the glove box , covers time set.
all radios do that.
and if not normal, the antenna is broken or fell off the rear of radio.

if got static switch to FM ,
many AM stations, broadcase to am and fm same content.
so use FM. its static free. (by design) but does fade sooner.
you can in fact hear AM station 12,000 miles away it night
called super stations, 50,000 watt stations. ive done this many time.

did you try another car, in same spot , and same station?
are you in under ground parking?

Subaru forester (2006) radio stopped working - only light static. CD player works fine.


Best guess is the antenna has a broken wire/lead, or somehow got unplugged from the radio. You will have to remove the radio to check antenna wire with Volt/ohm meter.
