FM: The antenna may be not working or loose connection. If it has a motorized antenna make sure it is coming up out of the car. Sometimes the motor will fail or the wire comes off or the fuse goes bad. And, since it is usually the AM that does not work so good when the antenna system fails so in your case, too, it may be the antenna amplifying circuit or tuner inside the radio that needs service and/or repair.

Try wiggling the fm cable wires if you know how to get down under the dash where the antenna cable comes into the radio unit from the antenna. If it is a loose or corroded cable connection this might wake it up.

Keep us updated.

Fix car radio static


old post, and my first radio noise post.
im an old radio guy USN, and ex ham.
Q1: AM or FM? (even on cassette or CD?)
1: bad antenna, and for sure, there are upgrades !
2: too far from station, AM is worst for static, but FM has shorter distance for same station power. (I heard XERB in VietNam! AM)
3: bad radio. (rare for both am and fm bad)
4: bad alternator can sing, play with throttle and it sings higher for higher RPM bingo. stop engine, singing gone?, bingo. Alternator.
5: and last ignition noise, so stop engine still have ignition popping sounds. no more? , then Ignition noise, clicks or pops. (spark)
6: noise has 2 sources , radiated or conducted.
if conducted on power line, 12v to radio , we can buy a filter to stop that.
older cars do this. what year is yours. a honda what a 73 civic?

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?

Thr radio in my 1994 Geo Prizm plays A.M. stations but all FM stations are just static. Is there a seperate antenna for FM ?


Yes Most modern radios have a built in antenna for am. so the one on the outside of your car is the fm. Sound like either the cable to the radio is broken or has become disconnected. You should be able to pull the radio out far enough to see the cable, it's the big black on, and determine whats up.

I don't understand why we don't get FM transmission...the AM and CD work fine, but the FM radio stations are not coming in.


Your antenna is not connected (at the back of the radio) or is shorted somewhere - AM comes in without an antenna pretty easily but FM doesn't.

this is not strange at all, the problem is the symptom of a defective antenna or the antenna ground to the chassis sheet metal of the car, also the coax to the radio can be defective.
