Radio static


Check your antenna. If the mast is not extended, your reception will be limited. try an AM station, usually a local AM station will still come in even with the mast down. Have you tried playing a CD (if equipped) ? If that plays well, you've confirmed lack of reception as the problem. If the mast is extended and you still do not have reception, the antenna plug my have come out of the back of the radio. The requires removing the radio to check.

The radio emitts static on the AM stations when I step on the brake pedal, but does not emitt static when on the FM stations.


This can happen for three reasons:

Do you have tinted windows? The AM radio signal travels further than FM due to being a lower frequency; however, its transmissioncan can easily be interfered. Tinted windows affect the AM signal's transmission to your car and not FM which is at a much faster frequency. Once I tinted my windows, the AM interference went way up when I accelerated and braked. I only listen to my FM channels now due to this annoying interference.

You may have electrical interference in your car causing this as well. Does it happen when rolling down the windows as well?

Third, it could be distance, the AM's transmission tower can be far away and you might be barely in range whereas the FM's transmission tower may be closer.

FM radio intermittent static on '95 volvo 940


Sounds like you either left something loose or lost a piece of shielding. Was there a filter on the antenna that you forgot to put back on?

Problems with static


We doubt there is anything wrong with the wiring in your radio. It has been our experience that after market window tint can cause static and poor reception in vehicles that have radio antennas built into the rear window. Removing the tint improves the radio reception but still leaves something to be desired, especially on AM.
