Question about Car Audio & Video
If you are sure that the aerial is attached and there is no break anywhere in the antenna connection then you should know that there is a common fault with tuners on these units.
The Ford 6000 unit in particular (and you don't say if this is your model or not) is extremely prone to this. What happens is that the tuner module in the unit itself fails causing intermittent or permanent loss of reception. This happens to practically all of these units at anytime after around 6 years or so.
The tuner units can be repaired for around $60 but the unit will have to go for service repair as it involves unsoldering the module from the circuit board and replacing it with a new one.
One method fully diagnose this as a tuner issue and to absolutely ensure there is not a problem with the antenna on the car itself is to purchase a cheap antenna - remove the unit from the dash and plug the cheap antenna into the back. You do not need to attach the antenna to the car body for this purpose as it is purely for testing puposes. If there continues to be no radio reception then the problem clearly lies within the tuner module in the radio itself.
Hope this helps and remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks
