when I manage to get the block of time to address my headlight issue, I'd also like to take a look at the radio. It's the original AM radio that is hooked up in conjunction with an original 8 track player. Its a 5 speaker set up

everything had been working great. The radio played until you popped a tape in, then the tape would play.

Now, the radio turns on (light comes on) but no sound

8 track works fine

well.....if the garage is real quiet and I turn the radio volume up, I can hear the faint sounds of talk radio.

does this sound familiar to anyone? Is there an amp in the radio that might have blown? it's a new speaker, so I'm ruling that out....
bad antenna? 8 track won't release priority?

I might add, that I just added A/C . It was a non air car, so it now has the duct work through out....but it worked fine for a few weeks after the install

thanks

Could be carbon buildup on the volume control, some contact cleaner may help.

You might have damaged that auto switch which turns off the radio when you go to 8-track, or at least might have loosened that connection.

A simple test by a audio shop or electronic buff could determine the status of your radio operation, eh?

Check for PM for additional info.

Check to see if the AC install pulled the antenna plug out on the back of the radio
