Question about Car Audio & Video
Hi to you
My Radio in my ford fiesta Reg 51, 2001 has stopped working in that all it picks up is air craft transmissions and when they are absent its just white noise(just keeps scanning until air craft radio is overhead) It is nothing (to me) obvious IE, aerial not changed also had a Ham radio friend Put a signal generator right in the car covering the FM frequencies from 88 to 108 with some power and still white noise is heard.However the 6 disc CD player still works.!.My Ford garage has told me its not looking good.due to cars age.And was told maybe cost would be more than car is worth..!!
One last point is that my car does very little mileage and had several times where I have had to jump start the car and wonder whether a component in the radio has been damaged by a surge as tended to leave radio on throughout the jump starting..Any suggestions to my situation would be a help with any options available.?
Many Thanks for any help you may give in anticipation.

It seem like a problem with the internal tuner. Somehow it detects diffrent frequency now, i am not familiar with frequency used in aircrafts, but I would gues they use higher frequency that FM bandwith. Capacitor lessen in value when they fail, so that would cause the local oscillator in your radio to detect higher frequency. As far as fixing them you would have to be an expert in radio comunication electronics. I for one a novice when it comes to how demodulation processes work and all that. Best solution is to put another radio, or you can take it to a CB shop. They maybe able to fix that. CB shops are usually around truck stops, because they service the CB radios that truckers use.
