Replaced my power antenna on my STS. It works fine, but my AM reception isn't there anymore. Prior to installing, the old antenna mast was stuck in the up position and the radio worked fine. Now it's nothing but static. Any remedies? Thx.

what year antenna did you replace with
AM band sounds better with SMALLER antennas FM for larger
if you didnt get the same one used in your car there could be a slight variance in size thus causing the difference

I didn't think it made a difference. I got the antenna off a 96 STS. It was the same length as the one it replaced.
