Default How to fix a car radio?

OK, you guys - who can tell me how to fix my car radio? I think it's only an antenna problem, as it will make static, but no stations come in. This just started, although it's never been a great radio. This morning I could hit the search button (tried both AM & FM) and it just kept looking up and down the dial. I suspect impact from one of our famous potholes loosened something... is the antenna connection hard to find or reconnect?

Or is it something else?
"Someday" is not a day of the week...but if it were, it sure would be a busy day!

It should be a coaxial cable (round, black and about 1/4 inch in diameter with aluminum connector) that pushes into the back of the radio.

Wear slacks, you will be looking under the dashboard with your feet on the seat back. You may have to remove some type of cover to even see the back of the radio. Flash light not optional. small hands a plus.

I would suggest you google "radio installation" for your vehicle.
