Question 2004 4Cyl No radio audio but CD works

Hi all! New fourm menber and I a weird problem: Yesterday I listened to the radio on the way to work and shut down normally after ariving. When I left for an appointment a few hours latter I noticed the radio was no longer outputting any audio. All the AM/FM preselects still display/select but still no audio. I tried the CD player (6-CD Changer) and all five disks I have loaded play just fine. Any ideas?

Either the tuner is dead or there's something wrong with the antenna. Does it seek to stations correctly? If so you have a dead tuner, and need a new radio.

Try removing all disks and then turning the vehicle off and on. If the unit doesn't revert to radio when no disks are present it has fried its little brain and needs to be replaced.

Thanks for the reply! The radio appears to seek to stations as well as to all my presets. I'll check the antenna. Thanks again for your help!

Does your radio have the ST light? This should help you determine if antenna is working or not. With a good signal the ST should stay on.

If it's seeking that means your tuner isn't sending audio to the internal amp. Time to start looking for a replacement.

You can get the 6CD units on ebay pretty cheap, or crutchfield has some good deals on aftermarket stuff. If you're going to go to a big box store, go to a Tweeter/Sound Advice or Circuit City. Avoid Best Buy, and let them wallow in their slow decline to failure.

I'll see you in Hell Best Buy. Don't ever &*$# with your young employees that are going to school. They're your future (not) customers.
