Antenna base is likely corroded. Will need new base that costs about $70 plus labour.

AM/FM radio how can get sound back?


a bad antenna tops list. or the cable fell off to it?
got static with volume up?
sure.
if you remove the ant. jack and put finger on the hot pin inside
you will become a human antenna, and pickup close local stations
or use a length of any wire, to put there and get lots of stations
if that works the radio is ok and antenna is bad.
we do this bench testing.

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?
