It's most likely the Antenna connection or the FM bands circuit has burned out. The AM Antenna looks like a coil and is actually in the radio in most models, the FM Antenna is the one built into the windshield or sticking up off one of the fenders or somewhere. Check the connections if you have good connections you'll have to replace the Radio.

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.
