we dont have many AM channels any more and the ones that are still using this old frequency are very poor to recieve the signal
have you tried using the LW band?? does that give the same results??

You can try removing the left rear interior C-pillar trim panel. there is an antenna amplifier there. Check to make sure that the coax connections are tight. Try turning the radio on and wiggling the coax while listening to AM station. See if wiggling the coax changes the reception. If so use pliers to tighten it until the reception is better. If that doesnt help then it may just be normal or it may be a faulty antenna (part of rear windshield) or something else. Keep in mind that window tint can sometimes effect reception as well.
