    there is a break in the signal somewhere... there aren't any fuses to the antenna. try making sure the antenna is plugged into the radio. if it is then the antenna is fucked... take it out and put a new one in.

    ^^^yeah there should be a black cable much like the one for T.V's with a metal plug that plugs into the back of the deck.

    yep...go for a shaved antenna... they look like a little raised bump over where your old antenna was. they get good reception and clean up the looks.

    Get a internal antenna and shave the hole for a cleaner look. :D

    Autoloc makes a great internal antenna or hit up a RadioShack or your local auto parts store.
