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.
Some tints have metal in them so it might cause you grief but how is the radio when you wind down the windows ?
A power aerial might fix the problem put in the front fender and then run to the radio via a coaxial cable.
However in my car it was the radio that was the cause of the same bad reception and it worked on one channel only.
I have since replaced the radio but this may not be the cause of your problem and you would want to really know if the radio was the cause before incurring an expense of a new car radio.
When you put the tape in and play your songs,then take it out or eject the tape, push in the radio mode, you should the radio , if not check to make sure you got a good antenna connection, sometimes there maybe a delay but hopefully not two minutes, should be more like 5-10 second delay
Most radio reception problems that occur only while the car is running are caused by damaged diodes in the alternator. It can be difficult to diagnose this since most dealers and repair shops will not disassemble the alternator to test the diodes. If you can find a shop that rebuilds alternators they can test for bad diodes and replace them if necessary. Hope this helps.
it might be that your gadget posses a wrong panel written AM when there is no am tuner. If you can check inside it whether it has a choke wound with copper wire for AM reception. If its missing, its aint gonna have any reception
