My kia sorento 2006 limited edition bought as used .The problem is the radio can get so much station .It's antenna located behind rear view mirror on windshield.Please


These types of antenna have poor reception, but should pickup local channels. Check the back of your receiver to make sure the coax is pushed all the way in, and hasn't fallen out. For better reception you could replace the aerial with a mounted aftermarket one. Hope this helps.

2008 vera cruz. AM reception is poor. It is better when engine is off but is still poor. FM and XM are good reception. Radio is integral with the GPS system. Hyundai has given up on fixing the problem....


Most radio reception problems that occur only while the car is running are caused by damaged diodes in the alternator. It can be difficult to diagnose this since most dealers and repair shops will not disassemble the alternator to test the diodes. If you can find a shop that rebuilds alternators they can test for bad diodes and replace them if necessary. Hope this helps.

I have an '02 Kia Sedona. Rasio has been working great for all these years but now various stations have very poor reception. We have checked the antenna and it is secure and looks fine. Any ideas?


Did u set ur radio to "LOCAL"?
If u did, reception will be poor, undo the "local" setting for normal reception!
Hope that might help u out!

Horrible AM radio reception in 2006 kia sedona


While a.m. radio does not get very good reception anyways,they have after-market antennas that will improve reception to the radio.You can get it at the parts store or you can have it installed at a car audio installation center.

No am reception and poor fm reception - 2004 Kia Sedona


If the antenna is on the front, pop the hood, and locate where the antenna wire connects to the bottom of the antenna and make sure it is connected well. If everything checks out there, you will have to pull the radio from the dash, and look at the back of it. There will be a large black wire by itself connected to the radio. Push it in to make sure its connected as well. That could really be your only problem unless your radio happens to have a fault on the inside which is extremely rare. Hope that helps
