Strange Radio Problems.....HELP

OK, heading home from feeding this afternoon.......had the radio on the usual station, just cruising along. All of a sudden, it just quit, then nothing but static. EVERYTHING is just static. NO radio stations will come in at all.....all static.

Stock radio in the Dodge......factory am/fm tape deck...........still have full power to everything...lights, clock, everything, just no tunes

This would be the quickest thing to check...see if you can find a break in the line between the antenna and radio. Worse case, you're receiver in the radio it self took a poop. I seen at Walmart they have nice Sony CD players for 98$ or so.

You need a new radio. Happened in my mom's Jeep. Your Dudge has the same style radio as her Jeep... It'd occasionally get stations, but would also only get static. New radio fixed it.

Sounds like you have a bad bad ground on yours, or are getting feedback from the grounds.
