Ever since I purchased my truck I can only get on station on my radio. I have tried everything that I know of to fix the problem, does anyone have the same problem or know how to fix it. It is getting really annoying.

Thanks

Could be a bad antenna or the antenna is not connected to the radio, or in some cases, there may be a joint in the cable between the radio and the antenna that came loose......this happens on AM and FM?

How about internet radio with smart phone + aux jacks!

If you pull the radio out of the dash, and then you have stations, but put it back in and lose the stations, you have a bad antenna connection......when you push the receiver back in, you are moving that antenna cable......it is either flexing the connection at the back of the radio or it is flexing a connector in the cable or you have a bad antenna cable, possible break that opens when the cable is flexed....
