BMW 528i AM Radio Reception Problem

AM reception extremely poor, (FM OK) would a motor drive ariel help ? instead of the embedded ariel in the rear window ?

An external antenna will make an improvement over the embedded one. The longer, the better.
You can re-use the original speakers & wiring for an after market setup. You should obtain a Haynes service manual for your car, as it has the wiring diagram for the factory radio, including color codes of the wiring. You will need this info to re-use the factory speakers & wiring.

Very poor FM receptio, and virtually no AM reception


The cascadia has an integrated AM-FM-WX, XM?, and CB antenna system, that is also prone to poor grounding. The best solution is to install aftermarket antenna systems for all of the equipment... I am driving a 2013 Cascadia with quite poor FM, and non existant AM, and WX reception. The XM works. I am afraid to hook up my CB to this, as it is pushing too much power, and is a sideband unit. I would like to hang the engineer by his/her toenails from the nearest tree for comming up with this garbage...

RDS reception with BMW Business radio


Well i remember the M25 being built so i wouldnt know about radio reception ,but i do remember radio london and caroline.Now i would imagine that this sort of auto reset of tuning reception is controled by a micro chip and this chip is now not working as it should so if you want it to work then its most likely cheaper to install a new radio.Or just use long wave for radio 4.

FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

Poor radio reception with Jensen VM9512 in 2001 Nissan Altima


If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.

if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..

hope this helps

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

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.
