Poor FM and AM radio reception in my 2001 Jaguar S type. CD and tapes deliver perfect sound.

Can I have the last six of your VIN so I can see which sound system is fitted?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
VIN = SAJAC02E81FM20058Also, Radio serial number = PJY M009103, if that helps.
Expert:  Richard replied 4 months ago.

I have seen issues with the actual antenna cables from the radio to the rear as well as the antenna amplifier located in the left hand C/D pillar. Make sure all the connections are clean and secure. Also see if turning on the heated rear window effects the reception.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Your comments were not helpful. I already had worked out it was likely an areal problem since CD plays without static. Of course I have tried to clean the connections at rear window to no avail. Unless you have some other suggestions, I don't really think I should be charged for the service i.e., not "100% satisfied" as guaranteed on your website. Please arrange a refund as promised.
