Re: static on radio stations

Sounds like the connection inside the fender, at the base of the antenna is no longer good. Will have to pull the antenna off and the base out to confirm. Hopefully someone on here has done that and can offer some adivce about how easy/hard it is to do.

If all looks good there then my next guess is the tuner inside the radio.

Re: static on radio stations

then it is an environmental or radio station concern, be it storms brewing, or whatever the case may be... if you get clear stations that verifies the integrity of your vehicles radio. There is no fixing that, sorry.
