Did you select the AM/FM button to change it from CD to the radio ? If that doesn't do it I would say the radio needs replacement. Any chance the optional CD is overriding the radio ? Did you select the radio MUTE button on the steering wheel or dash accidentally ?

Mine did that. You know how you have to flip the screen down to insert the Nav CD? I flipped mine down and then back. Worked. Best of luck. Maybe this will work for you. If not, try a hard reset by disconnecting the battery for about 2 mins. Hook it back up.
