You need a seperate AM antena for your AM radio to work. If you look on the back of the system where the FM antenna is connected you will see a AM hole for an antenna. I had same problem hope it helps!

AM.... what the heck is AM??? LOL
Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.
I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.
With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?

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
