Radio has static and goes off when you accelerate

Radio static can be caused by a number of things. The most common are RF interference from a malfunctioning alternator/charging system and a possible bad ignition coil.

I would BEGIN diagnosis by scanning the onboard computer system to see if there are any fault codes in any of the computer modules that may help pinpoint the cause.

FM radio works fine. AM radio worked fine when car was new but now it's like you're in a tunnel. Lots of static &/or weak signals. I have to turn up the volume very high to hear anyting on...

If you have window tint that contains metal sputter in it. That can cause interference on your fm/am signal strength. If that's the case change your tint to a carbon fiber tint that does not cause interfernce with your radio

Hyundai Azera radio will not pickup AM dealer

Try it with the engine not running. If it works fine, the problem is RF interference. If you are using platinum spark plugs instead of the old copper resistor plugs, it can cause this.
