As Bill said, those things are not a great idea. Take it out of the line and see of the VHF starts to work. If not, it could be the VHF, the feedline or the antenna. If it does work, the splitter is trash.
If you can't receive anything at all on the VHF, not even NOAA, but you can on AM/FM, I would guess the splitter is the most likely at fault. Unless the VHF is completely shot. So keep testing.
If you take the splitter out and still no joy on VHF, find a handheld VHF and connect it to the feedline. There are BNC to PL259 adaptors at Radio Shack. If that works, you have a VHF radio problem. If not, you have a feedline or antenna problem.
Next test, replace the feedline with a short, cheap one from Radio Shack, just for testing. If that works, then the feedline is bad. If not, the antenna is bad.
