Default Poor Radio Reception

So, after being in and out of the hospital multiple times, for both my self, and family, I am finally back and am able to tackle some small jobs around the house, and on my car.

Anyway. Shortly before I got sick, anytime I went out, when the car was running, all I would hear is static, on both AM, and FM, as soon as I shut the car off, it was gone and the reception was crystal clear.

The static doesn't change, it's always the same level at idle, as it is at 65Mph @ 2500RPMs.

Any ideas? I could lightly hear it on cassette as well, but since I changed to the OEM CD player, I only hear it on FM now.

Antenna ground. Clean all of the antenna plug conections. And, you probably should add a ground wire from the radio case to the car ground located on the right side, on the brace close to the I/P fuse panel. There is already a black wire there.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
