radio: here's one you haven't heard

2002LTE. FM portion of the radio has no sound! New problem not associated with changes, fixes ,or installations. FM portion comes on line, you can change stations, and everything within the FM area works, but no sound. Sidebar: AM radio works fine. As does the CD in the oddments box and the 6 disk Changer and the XM radio. DOH, WTF over? Just on the outside chance: I removed cleaned the antenna base and stretched antenna spring and reassembled.

My first guess would be (and it is just a guess)

antenna ground
FM is highly dependant on your antenna
Am would probably work without one.

You prolly know that the "FM" button is a toggle between RBDS stations and autostore/memory (AM is between stations and Wx channel). I'd try pushing the "FM" button down and holding it for more than two seconds and see what happens. Barring that, do try the fuse removal thang and see if a 30 minute fuse-less situation will restore the radio to full operation. I read thru a few of the posts that are near the bottom of this page, in the 'similar threads' area, butt didn't find one ed zachery meeting your dilemma.

One other avenue to explore is the volume level control procedure as outlined in the radio manual. That should be with the explanation of the Mute/TB toggle switch on the handbar control cluster. You might try going thru that sequence of programming and see if it restores FM sound. Good luck.

Thanks,
Please explain antenna ground: Do you mean at the antenna or at the radio.

corrosion inside the antenna itself where the cable bolts in.

Even with a bad antenna/connection you should be getting some kind of noise from the unit (static). I would look elsewhere for the no sound problem.

I had an Antenna ground and it would pick up stations that were very strong signals, like less than 5 miles away. any further I would get a very quiet static. Just trying to show my experience with antenna grounds. good luck
