    I’m I crazy or what, but after installed LED lights the am/fm stations don’t work anymore. I only use
    Satellite radio, but I would still like have the std radio to work.
    Crazy or ?

    Reverse what you did and see what happens.

    Easier said than done, all except rear tail/brake lights , headlights (HID) are LED's.

    Sometimes when installing an LED bulb kit or an HID bulb kit in your vehicle the result can be better, brighter light, but also a side effect of AM or FM radio interference. ... The solution for your problem might be what is called a ferrite coil, also known as a ferrite bead, a ferrite choke, or an RFI choke. Per Google

    Temporarily remove the fuses/relays for the headlight/taillights so they don't come on and see if you still have interference?
