Default 2000 Ram - Lost FM Stations

2000 Ram, 135K miles, factory radio (CD & cassette tape). I've lost all FM stations, all I get is static. Oddly, I can pick up AM stations. Antenna on exterior of truck is tight. Any ideas?

Try checking the antenna cable going into the rear of the radio. Follow the antenna cable as best as you can to where it joins the antenna behind the wheel well cover under the antenna, it may have become disconnected somehow.

I just had my right fender off for some work. There was CRAZY corrosion where the antenna cable went into the antenna base. Couldn't get them apart. If you can find a test antenna and cable, there is a splice connector under the passenger side of the dash, right above your feet for the antenna. Plug in a known good antenna, and that should help locate your problem.
