Pothole ruined stock radio

I drove over a pothole and lost reception to my stock radio on my 2005 Pontiac G6 GT.  There was EXCESSIVE static on all major radio stations.  I took it to the dealership and they replaced the antenna module it seemed to slightly fix the problem.  Then 2 days later we were back to where we started.  The dealership then replaced the entire car radio thinking it was something internal in the radio.  I picked up my car and then the next day the reception was AWFUL!  They have no idea how to fix it and it is driving me crazy.  Do you have any ideas about what the problem might be?  Thank you!

    I have no idea how to ground a radio.  How would you go about doing that?  

  • BLEWICKI91 Feb 24, 2008

    I'm sorry...I would still have no idea how to do that.  There is no metal that I can see on my radio.

    Thank you Pierre.  I'll keep you posted on the problem.

I want to replace my Pontiac G6 radio. But I want to keep my "info center" display intact. Is that possible?

There is a kit from Metra called the Metra 99-3303 kit that takes the double din area of the stock stereo and converts it into an info center/single din. Cost is about $123 on ebay.
