Recently, my radio has really bad reception and when I plug my cell phone into the charger, I can't get anything out of the radio but loud noise. I'm talking almost no signal at all. What could be the problem???

How close is your cell phone to the radio? My Nextel wrecks havoc on my stereo, especially when I place it in the cubby under the radio. Do you have AM reception without the cellphone in the car? This is a quick way to check and make sure your amplified antenna has not taken a shit.

The cell phone is right next to the radio, but it doesn't bother it unless I plug it into the charger. It's never messed with it in the past. I'll go see if my am channels work.

Okay, I checked to see if I had am reception. Every am channel sounds like a machine gun.
When you press, you feel the engine noise coming through the speakers?
Alex, I don't recall ever hearing any engine noise through the speakers. Is my antenna shot???
