Check to be sure the antenna is firmly plugged into the back of the stereo head unit. You need to pull pull out the head unit, then look for the largest black cable running into the back of the unit- that's the antenna. Be sure it's securely attached.

SOURCE: No radio reception on 2003 Audi A-4 Cabriolet Convertible

After reviewing the feedback on these postings I identified the problem them took it to my local car stereo shop. I showed them how by raising and lowering the trunk the signal went in and out. They fixed it for $60 by splicing in some new coax cable. It works great.

SOURCE: No AM radio reception in my 2002 Audi A4

do you get any stations, even weak stations on the AM band?  If not you have a bad radio and need replacement.  Try having someone hold the antenna as you scan the AM band.

SOURCE: Radio has very weak signal

Hello
More than likely you have a poor antenna ground, the outer woven part of the antenna coaxial cable is grounded to the chassis sheet metal of the car, this may be making a poor connection or the antenna may be defective. To check the antenna ground jacket find the antenna cable under the the dash, make a small hole in plastic covering on the woven outer metal conductor with an electrical probe attached to a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) set to the 200 Ohm scale and touch the cable and any bare metal in the car, you should have no more than 3 Ohms of resistance, if you do you either have a poorly grounded antenna or a defective antenna.

It sounds like you are just in a weak reception area. If you feel this is not the case first try replacing the entire antenna assembly, it would be the primary cause of this type of problem.

Rear defroster lights up, but does not defrost, also very weak car radio reception.


Between the rear passenger window and the back window is a junction where rear defrost wiring and radio antenna connect. Rear defrost wiring becomes loose and burns this unit out. when looking for replacement at salvage yard everyone of them I found had burned up. Lots of La Sabres w/o working rear defrost. I made solid connections for defroster, and added an antennae, not much point in repeating a system that will fail again.

2007 Sonata AM radio has no sound. Hit search at 100% volume and tuner scrolls non stop. FM is fine. Antenna?


AM is reflective, FM is not. Best reception is always FM because of this reason. Reflective AM bounces off everything - buildings, trucks, houses, power poles, etc and cause 'shadow' RF which confuses the the radio's AM tuner. However, if this condition exists ALL the time (whether you driving or in your garage), then the problem is either in the audio unit itself or in the rear window antenna (or connection to it). Left "C" pillar cover removed, you'll see the physical connections to the window antenna (it's also the rear defroster heating elements).

FM/AM reception problem


It should- that splitter is generally used for factory telephone reception and also there is an antenna located in the rear window glass. It will work for radio reception but it will interfer with your phone if you have a phone installed. just make sure you have a good antenna ground. Try removing the grond and sanding the metal so that there is no paint or oxidation that causes higher resistance. This generally affects a.m. reception.
