03 Grand Marquis LS
I just recently got an 03 Grand Marquis LS with 100,000 miles on it. The radio works fine (Tape and CD), however, AM and FM have a LOT of noise and very little reception. I assumed it was the connection on the back glass or behind the radio. Both connections are solid and clean. While I had the radio out of the dash, I plugged in an external antenna I had laying around from a pontoon boat. It had the same results as the antenna in the back glass. Most of the time all I hear is static. Every now and again, I'll hear music or talking. The weirdest part, I have the radio tuned to an FM country station. But I have heard rap music, sports talk, and I have also heard the call sign for another radio station; almost as if I was changing or scanning through radio stations. Anyone ever experience anything like this?
