    A/M Radio (I have to open and close power window to get it to come in)

    Anyone have this problem... or have any thoughts?
    I have a 1996 Eldorado. I love the car. Just 100K miles on it. I have had the car for a year. I like to listen to talk radio on the AM stations. The radio will come in for a while... then get fuzzy like I am losing the station.... then I lower the window a little... and it clears up... but have to do it often. When I stop and put car in park... it does the same thing... clears right up.

    Any thoughts???

    AM radio? That does ring a bell.

    I'm quite confused as to why opening the window would have anything to do with making it clear up the radio station.. Yep i'm completely stumped and when the car is in park its ok? does it make a difference if the car is running or not?

    Maybe opening the window allows all the interference to escape.

    All kidding aside, it makes no sense to me either.
