2006 Volvo S40: fm works fine.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am having an issue with my 2006 Volvo S40. The issue is poor AM radio reception. FM works fine. I have read that this has been an issue on earlier models, but haven't found any info on the 2006 model...any ideas? Thanks.

Thank you for the reply. Maybe I need to clarify a little. I can receive AM stations, the closer I am to the station, then the reception drops off as I get farther away from the radio station. Does this sound like an antenna issue or other hardware like you suggest?

Thanks again...
