Weird Radio Issue

My radio is acting very funny. It plays CDs fine though the speakers but when I try to use the radio nothing works. AM and FM are both out. The radio's power is fine, so I know it's not a ground. Any ideas what this could be?

Yeah, check the antenna connection, but, check it at the FZV module. Also make sure it's getting power. Check the WDS for pinout of the connector. I think the FZV antenna amp is module N8 on the WDS.

I had a similar issue but the stations came in very weak and it was the antenna connection to the back of the radio.
