  1. AM radio "static" while driving over road bumps

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a 2016 Soul + with the stock radio and have noticed that when I am driving on a road with some unevenness the AM reception has intermittent static--earlier this week I thought it was due to lightning storms in our area. Today I noticed the same thing occurs, except there is no storm...

  7. A.M. Tuner on Radio has digital static, can not receive stations

    New Member Introductions
    I have a suspicion this is a wide spread problem, but who listens to AM radio anymore? I do . So here is the problem. FM works as expected, but AM is pure static and digital background noise. Took the car (2011) back to the dealer and they swapped the radio (and cracked the horshoe ring...
