Question about 2002 Audi A4
This car has very weak reception compared to my other cars. It has an embedded antenna in the rear window.
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.

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.

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
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.
