AM Reception

Post by dameru44 » Sat Jan 10, 2015 10:02 pm

My Taurus 2014 Limited has very poor AM reception in New York and New Jersey both 1010 and 880. Stations Did not experience this on my 2008 Limited. Any suggestions.

I believe your AM/FM antenna is part of your rear window (it looks like part of the rear window defrost system). The wire feeds into the ACM (audio control module) and on to the radio.

If memory serves there may even be an update for the radio or ACM. Since it's a 2014 warranty shouldn't be an issue so I'd have the dealer check it out.

Oh, and don't take "This is normal" for an answer, it isn't normal :)

Have you addressed this with your dealer yet, dameru44?
