Question about Sony CDX-4000X CD Player
My CDX-4000X radio will not pick up any radio stations, just buzzing staic. I ohmed the antenna wire from where it plugs in to the radio to the antenna (directly on the antenna) and read 0 Ohms. Beyond that I'm stumped.

No, not directly. Here is a link to Sony for your CDX-4000X Operating Instructions.
Belkin as well as many other companies make devices that plug into the ciggarette lighter and then into your iPod. There is an FM tuner controller than sends the music from the iPod to an FM station on your head unit. Belkin calls theirs a 'tunecast auto'. I believe it sells for about $30 USD.

Yes you need to check your antenna if the tuning has not shifted. there could be an insulation fault if the antenna have a faulty cord within. the present models come with a fixed antennae and so the problem is limited. Look behind the set to see if the jack to the antenna input is loose. You can connect another one to confirm this , if so change with an original replacement as there are many spurious low quality ones. I am sure you will get more years of use. Good day.

FM reception is weak
What to do
• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.
• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna
• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.
* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.
The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.
Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.
Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.
