If you were talking on it prior to it going south, you may have burned out the transmit final output transistor (Final). If the Finals shorts out, the receive goes way down.

radios often have components that over heat and burn out. Once burned out they have to be repaired or replaced. Ford F150 trucks are notorious for that.

Thanks

You have a failed output section inside the radio. If you remove the radio, and take it apart, you will see some burnt capacitors at the very back side of the PC board. This is, unfortunatly, a very common problem with those cars. You are going to have to get another radio, the expense for the manufacturer to fix is is more expense than a replacement. Sorry, but I have seen this situation too many times.

Odd odor

Yes..... that odor you smell was a component burning out on the circuit board. if you were lucking it only burned out one thing. fixable....if you have the time. actually anything is fixable it usually boils down to the cost of fixing it vs replacing the item.
