The antenna for at least the 2000-2005 Impala's is built into the rear windshield. There is actually a little "control box" that the radio antenna wires goes to from the radio. It is located on the drivers side rear pillar under the trim plastic. From there a small antenna wire goes to the defroster terminals. It is a known problem for that module to die. I personally did not want to pay several hundred dollars for a new control box nor a rear windshield. I purchased an active FM antenna from some car audio joint for like $15 that works just fine.
Inspect the defrost lines on the rear windshield.
I was able to spot the place where one was interrupted. If a broken line is not visible, you can try sliding a small piece of aluminum foil along each line and check the spot where the radio reception is static-free. To fix the problem, I have used Permatex Quick Grid Rear Window Defogger Repair Kit. It is a conductive compound that restores the electrical circuit.
It's possible there's a problem with your antenna wire. Make sure it's in the radio and that it's not cut somewhere along the line.

The radio on a 2003 Chevy Impala can be typically be fixed by replacing the fuse. If the radio does not work when powered, it will need to be replaced with a new unit.

Could be a wire crossing in the speakers, the radio itself might be bad. Does it do it all the time? Speakers might be blown. Or, your antenna lead is not plugged into the rear of the radio. Is it radio static, or does it have static on cd/tape as well?

Yes, radio static is a sort of afterglow fro the big bang, and can be detected in every direction in the universe.
The BCM (Body Control Module) of the Passlock system is malfunctioning. It will need to be replaced. I just had it done to my '03 Impala.

It's turned on and off by the central timer module on the back side of the inside fuse panel. THat module control the time the radio stays on with the ign shut off.

Make sure the antennae is connected and good, Then you may try an anti-static kit from radio shack.
This is usually on the AM band waves. It is cause by interference from the fuel pump. When the car is off, the fuel pump is not running.
Bang on itStop the car and start is back up againKeep the radio on but turn it down to low, unhearable volume.That's all I can think of.....Hope that helps!
AM radio is naturally has more static than FM. But if it has so much static that the really powerful or local stations are fizzy, that means you need a better antenna.
When the radio in a Hyundai XG300 becomes all static, it is possible that the antenna is damaged. It could also be possible that the antenna is loose on the back of the radio.
