I was listening to traffic the other day and the radio went silent. I switched to FM, but nothing, not even static. The CD player works fine. The radio came back on the next day while I was driving, and summarily went out the day after that. 3 days later it has not come back on. I still have a radio station display, but if I scan it won't stop on anything, it just cycles all the way through. Before I pull my dash apart, I'd like to have a plan, what can I do?

Your modulator shouldn't effect the cd player. But it can cause static in your fm if you leave it on. Make sure the modulator is turned off before trying to use the regular fm. Also, if its a wired modulator, then check the antenna connections. If it's wireless than it should not effect anything. Depending on the radio, get a aux input on it. Wireless fm transmitters are the worst.
there should be a small hole it the front of the cd player just big enough to fit the tip of a paper clip in. This is your manual eject for the cd player, although it it does not have one then may have to pull the top cover off of the cd player and do to the you can to get it to eject the cd without scratching it.
when you disconnect it from cables, it resets. But i believe that is not the problem. Check speaker cables. I think you have problem with internal power amps. They have thermal and current protection. look for short circuits on speakers or speaker cables.
There will be static.
A lot of my passengers are surprised that there is static on satellite
radio, but there is. Your Sirius satellite receiver "broadcasts" to
your car's FM radio through a frequency you select. For example, the
Sirius channel on my car radio is 89.1, which is pretty clear and works
pretty well on my regular commute. But if I drive beyond that route,
where 89.1 is routinely used by regular broadcast radio stations, there
is a lot of interference and static. I then have to switch frequencies
on both the receiver and car radio, to find another clear channel.
Quite a pain.
There will be interference.
Even the smallest bridge, tunnel, or parking garage often seems to
block satellite reception, and occasionally the signal will completely
disappear for no reason.
I DID TONS OF RESEARCH FOR YOU ABOUT THESE RADIOS. THE SAME PROBLEM YOU HAVE ARE FOUND BY 100'S OF OTHERS. IT'S THE COMPANY THEMSELVES HAVING DIFFICULTIES.
