Radio Reception

I have no radio reception at all in my car. If i try searching for a station it never finds one, all i get is a crackling sound.

Is there any way to get the reception back as i miss listening to the radio?

I have a Fiat Stilo

Re: Radio Reception

Sounds obvious, but have you removed the stereo? in case the aerial lead has come adrift?

Me neither

I'd try a reset (disconnect battery) and if that fails then assume radio is duff
