SOURCE: WHY CAN'T I GET AM RADIO RECEPTION - ONLY FM??

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?

SOURCE: 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

If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

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...

You can purchase a in-line amplifier to boost radio signal, or just buy a new deck for less than $100 and get it installed. Great deals out there for decks below $100 installed. Try Best Buy or Fry's electronics.

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.

I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.
