e38 radio problem youtube vid of problem

radio does not pick up stations and says "ST" next to the station number. When i try to search for a radio station it runs through all numbers and goes back to 87.5 and this is what does for am and Fm radio. i cant find any sure fire solutions for this problem. I am going to replace the ignition switch and battery and ill post if that fixes it. if not the cassette head unit comes next. and if not that its prob the antenna receiver but i dont know where that is in the car ( 98 740il) anyone with a write up or past experience have/fix this problem it that would be great to help me/ anyone else who has this problem thanks.

says 95 bmw but its 98. ( i box and this is after a sparing practice so i had mind farts )
also i changed the fuses but didnt do this "radio module" or antenna reciever cuz i dont want to rip everything out and screw somthing up unless i kno exactly where it is.

thanks guys

I've read before that the earlier E38s had some sort of antenna issue. My 2001 on a certain AM channel, it would buzz and go up and down with the RPMs. Check E38.org
