No reception in either am or fm sounds like an antennae problem. The first thing to do is remove the radio and check the connection at the back. If you find that it is connected there is another connection to check farther down the cable. You should find that at the passenger fender area from the inside of the car. Remove the side panel at the passenger floor area to expose the cable.

If that proved good then install a known good ant. and recheck the reception.

I'm sorry, no reception is some type of ant. issue and will require some investigation to determine why. The PTY feature has no bearing on why there is no reception.
