    Kenwood Car Stereos

    Hey all,

    I just installed a Kenwood head unit in my 2006 WRX. Everything works except the AM stations. Does anyone have this problem or have any idea what the cause may be? I'm thinking it may be the radio itself, but I wanted to get some second opinions.

    need more deatils:
    when you try to tune to an am station, what happens:

    - nothing, the unit doenst change modes = you probably need a new unit
    - no sound, but the unit changes modes = you still probably need a new unit
    - there is just static, stations change, but nothing comes in = check the wiring if you installed it yourself, makes sure the antenna is hooked up correctly

    if you took your car somewhere to have the unit installed, i would go back and tell them to fix it

    Ive gotten numerous customer complaints of this before even in the stock brand new 2010's and 99.9% of the time the person is usually in a bad reception area, which obviously we really have no control over, as mentioned though make sure all wiring is connected securely...
