Lately, I do not get sound from the AM / AM radio that was factory installed. The cassette play normal / perfect, and sound comes from all speakers.
Thugs broke into car, and stole the 6 CD (FM modulated) changer that was connected to the factory radio - In going so, they did something to the radio.
With radio power ON, all I hear is the static but no reception on AM nor on FM.
Can I do something myself to mend this? HELP.

Yes, but you have to remove the stereo to make sure it is connected.

When I installed my RF changer, it had a small metal box that went behind my head unit that plugged into the antenna cable back there, and then from there to the stereo.

If it's not the antenna, then I have no idea what they did to screw up your stereo?

However, if they went thru al the trouble of getting your head unit out, then my guess is they would have taken that, too (and not put it back in)!

My guess is when taking the changer, they would have just cut the cables in the trunk. It may be possible they cut the antenna cable too? Might want to check that out?

Sorry I can't be of more help :)

Just one more thought. you may have that box behind your head unit that was there for the changer. Maybe it's still trying to send the signal from the changer that no longer is there?

Might be a good idea to remove that, and make sure the antenna cable connects directly from the antenna to the head unit.

While you have your radio out.

You may want to stop by a local scrap yard. Check and see if you can get the cd/tape/AM & FM radio unit. It fits in same location and most salvage it for under $50. Seen a couple today while searching for my OTIS.
