Try checking the wire connection of the antenna to the back of the radio. Outside the car, make sure the antenna is tightly attached to the base .

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.

98 BMW M3 radio has poor or no reception. CD changer and head controls work fine. The car is new to me and I understand that there is an amp or antenna booster that may be the problem.


the usual cause of this is a defective antenna or antenna ground, if it is a power antenna verify a good ground, if ok replace the antenna, also check the coax connector to the back of the radio.

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
