Very bad am radio reception, how do i fix?


If it's interference from the high tension wires,you probably need new spark plug wires with good resistor type plugs.
Now,also a bad antenna or a poor match of frequency to the antenna from the rec eiver can cause weak reception.Anyone who knows electronics can match the antenna to the receiver. don-ohio

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
