I have a VW Monsoon radio that was working perfectly fine today at lunch but tonight it has static on every station. You can still hear what's playing but the static is the same on every channel. Any idea what has happened? Thanks.
It is possible that the antenna has become loose in the back of the radio. Not much holds this type of connector on, so you may want to pull the head unit and see if it is securely attached. Another thing that could have happened is that the antenna on top of the car has come loose in its base. Either it just wiggled out or someone messed with it. Otherwise it could be either a problem with the head unit or the antenna cable is broken somewhere. The last two situations are unlikely, but still entirely possible.
