I would check the antenna first, if you have to remove the radio head to test the antenna, just don't disconnect it electrically and you should be fine. If your thinking about a different system altogether, I would talk to the guys at car toys or even best buy before heading down that road.

I would replace with a modern CD unit

Thanks..I was thinking the antenna too but I'll have to go to a lot of bother in taking the headliner down to check it in the roof. I was thinking about putting in a new antenna that sticks along the window. Dont won't to put in a new radio/CD system if it means the digital display will stop working or can i wire it into the present one? DECISIONS??!

Is the antenna behind the cassette player or the top unit?

It will be in the back of the radio head. Yup won't have to pull the headliner down to test it, just some longer leads for your ohm meter, clip the one end to the point on one and the other to the mast and read the ohms it should be close to 0 ohms, then clip it to the ground part of the antennas plug and clip the other end to the vehicles chassis, again ohms should be almost 0 if any shows open or no continuity then the antenna is bad and will need replacement. However if the antenna is good then the problem is in the radio itself, you may need the code to reset the head unit once it is removed and repaired, a dealer is the best place to get the right code as they use the VIN.

Thanks for the advice. I'm just going to go at it now..
