Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

FM reception problems

I can't get any reception with my radio. The cd player works fine but the radio barely picks anything up in the city and is all static on the highway. Just bought the car used and it seemed to be working yesterday when I drove it and tonight when I got in it what I described is what it was doing. Any ideas?

    My 2004 Corolla has a similar problem. A radio station will come in for a few seconds and then spontaneously loses the connection and scans up and down on all stations.

Cd player work but no radio


Assuming the vehicles antenna is intact and in one piece, check the antenna connection behind the radio. If the antenna is connected behind the radio, there could possibly be a problem with the radio's tuner (internally). The only way to properly diagnose this problem is to place a radio that is known to work into the vehicle (simply to test) and check the radio reception. If the radio reception is improved and working, you know the problem lies within the radio itself.

If it still does not work, there is a problem with the antenna on the vehicle (disconnected, damaged, cut, etc.)

If you pick up FM. It isn't the antenna. It's an internal radio problem.

WHY DOES MY 2004 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR HAVE EXCESSIVE RADIO STATIC ON AM?


As suggested it could be underhood electrical interference. If the "static" changes with increased rpms (rev the motor to find out) chances are it is ignition related and could be literally everything from the alternator to the ignition coil through the distributor cap, but best bet is the spark plug wires (which if still original really should be replaced anyway) or the plugs themselves. If your am static doesn't change with engine revolutions and your fm works okay I would check antenna and the antenna connections at the base of antenna and back of radio. if you cant even get a clear signal on the most powerful AM station in your area, I would bet on some kind of break in the connection between radio and antenna. p.s. if you;ve anything plugged into cigarette lighter or other 12volt outlets in the vehicle unplug them before doing any of the rest!

talk to a radio installer about the possibility of a bad earth connection or having a capacitor fitted across the back of the alternator to stop arcing from the rotor brushes and dirty slip rings.

2000 Silverado FM radio (only) no sound


You can try resetting the radio by removing power from it for a few minutes, reconnecting it and trying again. However, it sounds like an internal electronics problem that will either require a repair or replacement.

97 mitsubishi bad radio reception


It sounds like you are just in a weak reception area. If you feel this is not the case first try replacing the entire antenna assembly, it would be the primary cause of this type of problem.
