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.

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.

Where is the antenna for 2001 chevrolet cavalier? I just purchased a FM broadcaster for my mp3 player and the cavalier radio will not pick up the signal.


it's at the rear of the car on the passenger side -- many FM broadcasters are very low power, but even so the Cavalier is a small car and shouldn't have any problems, I have one that is used in a '02 Sebring with no issues -- if you have problems with reception of normal broadcast radio, the problem may be with a connection (either at the antenna or back of the radio) also ensure that the radio is on the same frequency as is being broadcast.

Sounds like the CD changer is defective, sometimes the dealer will offer a "one time goodwill" repair when it is out of warranty for miles but not for the time period. Check with the dealer where you purchased the car.
