Am radio plays fine but whenever I switch to fm there is no audio no static or anything. It’s completely quiet. I just got the car so I’m not sure what could be wrong. Thanks for the help!

I’vechecked fuses and theyre fine
I was wondering if not having an antenna would cause it to just not play anything at all.

Since AM works, but FM doesn't, I suspect the antenna. In 94 and 95, Mercedes used an AM antenna that was embedded in the rear glass, and the FM antenna was in the rear bumper. The retracting antenna was only used for the built in cell phone. In the left rear of the trunk in the well, there is a connector from the antenna in the bumper to the antenna amp/combiner. If you have a CD player in the well, you need to remove it and the trunk side carpet to access it. A discussion on the antennas and a service bulletin to enable use of the retracting antenna is below.
