In Reply to: Horrible AM Radio Reception posted by JFE on August 09, 1999 at 17:43:01:
: I've never received very good reception on my AM Radio on my '98 540i 6-spd. I've visited a number of dealerships and they say AM recieves interference from the ABS brake system...and that BMW is aware of the problem but, doesn't have any solutions.
: Anyone here know what to do??
Have it tested at the dealer - compare to another unit at the same time.
What they can do is put the radio into "test mode" and then it will provide a "signal strength" reading of any station you select. Compare this to the reading on another car at the same location. If the signal strength is lower on yours then there is a problem with the antenna, the diversity/amplifier or the radio itself.
