My new S60 get great FM radio reception but extremely bad AM
reception.
I am a talk radio fan and listen to lots of AM stations.
Any ideas besides going back to dealer?

Thanks

If the problem is noise, the usual reason is a bad connection to the body at
the antenna. But doing anything about it really is the dealer's headache.

Re: Very Bad AM Radio Reception

It is possible that you have an aerial integral with the window glass. If so
you may find a break in the AM loop. This can be mended with a template and
conductive paint.

All the best, Peter.

Re: Very Bad AM Radio Reception

This may or may not apply to your model.
You did not mention the year or any specs.
All 2003-2004 AWD models only.
The rear electronic differential can cause AM static.
A ground strap from the DEM to frame will correct
the AM static. Any Volvo dealer should know about this
and can correct a static problem.
The above will not help poor reception.
