Default no fm radio signal

Hi, I searched and found absolutely nothing that can point me in the right direction of this problem. First, jsut to get it out of the way...my windows are not tinted. All of sudden I lost all fm signal to the stock radio. The am works fine so I am guessing this is an antenna issue. So the antenna in the window runs and plugs into the back of the deck correct? I just want to be sure to start looking there before I start ripping the console off. Any other suggestions that could help in this issue would be greatly appreciated

Are you still under warranty by chance if it's not super easy to fix ? Have you ever had to pull your bezel and remove the radio before ? It's very easy . Bezel pulls out from bottom and radio is held in with 4 screws .

Yeah i was just looking to see ho to remove it. Thanks for speeding that step up. The car has an extended warranty through the dealer I bought it from, but dealing with those in the past, I doubt they will cover it. I guess if its not an easy fix...aftermarket deck is closer to the horizon than planned.

I am not sure on the 300 I would have to go out and check. There should be a plug on the back window also running to the antenna. Make sure it is not loose. There is a plug for the defroster and should be one for radio. You may have to remove back deck to see. Pretty easy if so.

Fold seats down.
Pull side seats forward
pop side molding loose
pull deck towards you.
should be just one plastic rivet dead center behind seats.
Will just pull out then.

Pretty simple no tools needed. This is if you can not see the antenna connect.

Might be a simple antenna plug connector coming loose on the back of the radio. fyi to take the antenna completely out, you need to push it in to the radio and squeeze the metal surround on the antenna and pull it out.

Quiet is an unknown quantity at this point

Look under the rear package tray for the connection there. And you'll want to check the back of the head unit. I suspect it's one of those connections.

alright i had some time this morning and removed the radio and unplugged / re-plugged and everything up there seems good....now i moved on to try and remove the rear deck...how the hell? I folded the seats down, removed the plastic rivot....the sides of the seat seemed like they needed to be removed so i removed the 10mm bolt that holds that piece on through the bracket, now the top seems to have a strap holding it in place. any tips on thios would be great

okay i figured out how to remove the deck but now i dont see an antenna or defrost connection....anyone know exactly where this connection is?

Slide a straight screw driver straight down ( between the back of the bolster and the metal) the center on the top of the side bolsters and push down . You will push down on a release spring type clamp that is holding you in . You need to pull out( towards you ) on the top of it at the same time .

Look at the pics in here,,,,
