Hello, I hope you are doing great. I would be happy to assist you with this.\

The FM system works off a separate antenna from the AM system, so it sounds to me like there is an issue with either the antenna, or the coax cable that connects the antenna to the radio unit. I would recommend inspecting to verify the antenna is not damaged/loose, if the antenna is good, then chances are we have a bad cable

OK thanks. Sorry, I thought AM audio was working but it's not. SO FM/AM audio isn't working, but CD audio is 100% fine.

You are very welcome. If it is not working on either than it is most likely an issue with the preamp. The signals run into the amp and then into the radio. Usually when the AM/FM both fail it is a bad radio, but since that has already been replaced I would look into the amp

Ok thanks, ***** ***** will I need to look for/do to the amp?

You just need to make sure it has a proper ground and power signal. The failure is usually internal and requires amp replacement

OK but why would CD audio be fine if there's an amp problem?

Ok Enes I’ve rated you. I’ll take a look at bumper mounted antenna and let you know if this fixed it.
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
One question. If the antenna is disconnected/faulty, wouldn’t I hear some static noise rather than dead silence?

most time it gets unplugged , no static just no fm . if antenna is good than is gone be bad radio

Ask Your Own Volvo Question

radio must be programed to car and Volvo dealer has access to software only used radio will not work

Hi, ok removed rear bumper and antenna was unplugged, plugged it back in and radio still the same, no noise from AM or FM, CD audio is fine. What do you suggest next?

if that is case no am no fm than is gone be in radio it self so to say all other parts are built in radio internally . most likely you will need new radio . but Volvo radio is expensive I would look for aftermarket radio with dvd radio navigation what can fit in dash also same as Volvo
