Terrible radio reception.

So lately I've noticed I get horrible radio reception. Stations that's should be coming in loud and clear are nothing but static. Also, once I do manage to get a station it's never that clear....until I turn he car off. Then it comes great. Any ideas??

Rear window tinted? If so, what type of tint? There is a metallic type that is known to cause reception issues as the antenna is in the rear window.

Yea the rear is tinted. I was tinted when I purchased it. And the radio reception was fine when I purchased the car. Only within the last few months has it really been an issue. I mean I can sometimes hit the seek button and it will go all the way around without picking up a station.

Denis,

Sincere apologies to hear of the radio reception concern. I know that is displeasing for you. If you experience anything that might be tied to a vehicle issue, please let me know and I can help facilitate a dealer visit.

Regards,

Well the thing that concers me is that the radio reception improves when the car is not running.

Have you added a stereo amplifier into the trunk, or under the rear speakers?

Well like I said, it's all fuzzy when the car is running. As soon as I shut the far off it's clear.

Hahaha oh it's the car. Here's a clip of what I'm talking about. You can clearly hear the difference when I turn the car off.
