I have trouble getting AM radio to come in on the radio in my truck and would like to find a way to solve the problem. By buying a new stereo system will that do anything for me? Or is the problem probably somewhere else like the antenna etc?
Most likely the antenna. Completely changing out the head unit may help but seems like a waste of money. Can you get the blowtorch (1040)?
I can get it within about 30 miles of Des Moines and that is it, can't get any other stations to come in at all. I live about 2 hours away from Des Moines and drive quite a bit, so I would be willing to pay some money for it.
FM has always come in fine. AM has been bad since the day I bought it (used).
I'd be willing to bet that there is just some kind of bad connection to the head unit. If I was you I would go to a professional and see what they say. Worse case scenario you're out a couple of hundred but you have a new head unit.
A lot depends on the year/type of your truck and whether you have a nice radio in there now. It used to be that trucks came with crappy radio's but some of the new ones are pretty nice.
