Try spraying the tuning and mute switches with some electrical contact cleaner. Put the straw beside the button and give it a shot or two while working the switch. Get the kind that won't harm plastic. I got some at Walmart the other day... CRC brand I believe, in the automotive section.

Welcome mongo ., sounds like bad ant. coninuity , check for corrosion were the ant. connects to radio and any other ant. connections.
Check for good ant. ground .
The coax ant. cable will wick water through its length if a bad seal is at the ant. end .
If you find corrosion at the ant. radio connection you should replace the coax. cable and check the coax. to ant. connector for good seal.

AM fuzzy but no FM indicates bad alignment of the FM tuner pack and possibly AM. The AM requires an antenna but FM will work to some degree on just the coax and mount.

In addition to Mongo3tmf's problem, I would like to ask if there is any way to alter the FM frequencies the radio serves? Living in a country where most FM station's frequencies range between 87 and 107, the radio is pretty much "dumb" around here.
