    Hi, I've had the same problem since I got my 1996 E34 518 a couple of years ago. I've not been too bothered as we can listen to FM, CD or ipod transmitter perfectly OK, but it would be great if anyone knows of a solution to let us receive MW as well. The advice above seems logical but my car doesn't have an aerial to check. Would the rear window heater or something else act as an aerial or is there another way I can check this? Thanks for any help.

    I recently bought a 2005 330i and can't get my am morning talk radio; nothing but static! Help!

  • Anonymous Oct 08, 2008

    I have a 2003 BMW M3. About 6 mos ago the AM radio just stopped working. The car has a nav system and the station ID's show up on the screen as though all is fine. I've checked the rear antenna & connection - no problem. I've also verified it's set to the USA AM wave band. Just silence. Too bad sports and one of my favorite talk shows are on AM.



    Any thoughts.

If fm is ok but am has poor reception the first suspect is the ariel, if the mast unscrews then remove it and put something metalic such as a long screwdriver where the ariel screws in and check if am has improved if so replace the ariel, if this doesn't solve it the tuner may need to be replaced

Just bought a car and it had hardwired sirius radio already installed. I called and activated it with Sirius radio and tried to get assistance from them on how to get it to work. They gave me instruction...


The "hard wired" version that you speak of apparently only refers to the power supply.Do you have a seperate display for the Sirius unit? Now, you failed to mention the type of radio (factory or aftermarket); so, if you have to use an "empty radio station" then you have an FM modulator. This modulator could wired or wireless. The wired version interrupts the vehicle antenna wire and the station on said modulator is usually preset to either 88.1, 88.3,88.7, or 89.1. There is no need to power this modulator up, it comes on when then Sirius comes on. One way to check for power is to turn on the Sirius unit and tune your radio to an occupied Fm station. Wait a few seconds and listen to the reception. Turn off the Sirius unit, the reception should improve for the occupied station. If it is a wireless FM modulator it also has preset stations that you can change but, extending the wieless antenna will greatly improve your reception of the Sirius stations.

Dual xhd6425 Reception Problems


My XHD6425 seems to be very inconsistent... Sometimes I get okay reception, other times I get terrible reception (much worse than my original stock Ford radio). The reception problems are more noticeable on stations that are more than 30 miles away or so.
Perhaps oddest of all, I've sometimes had it bounce back and forth between two stations (like if you are driving and in the middle of nowhere, half way between two stations), even in areas where I know should be getting good reception on one station and had never heard of the other other station before.
If you've figured anything out, please let me know.

No radio reception in office.


most portables have a very weak FM receiver, and a building interior tends to block a good deal of signals. your best bet is an old fashioned unit with a large retractable antenna.

FM RADIO Reception


No, it should work, although it will depend on how good your reception is. This depends on how strong the signal is where you are trying to receive. If you have tried scanning for channels and all you receive is static, it's possible your tuner is bad. Have you tried to tune it to a known good station manusally?

Bad reception w/ Panasonic RF-544


I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.)
