    Default Radio problems on the AM band.

    Radio AM band problems
    My 2006 Vectra radio has a problem on am band only.

    I live in Bristol and in certain area's it will play our local Radio Bristol, but no Talk Sport or 5 live.

    In other parts of the country, 5 live can come on with a weaker than normal signal.

    I have checked the aerial connection on the back of the radio and all seems fine.

    Any idea's?

    AM reception has been questionable on most cars since the year dot.

    When I have had to rectify AM reception problems in the past, the following steps have been taken:-

    Clean and tighten serrated securing nut on aerial base.
    Replace aerial cable with a one-piece front to rear cable. (This was on older Vx's, and used older style ISO aerial connector, rather than the newer Fakra type.)
    Replace aerial base.

    If all of the above fail, then the problem lies with the head unit, which should be exchanged or repaired.
