I suspect that your engines electrics are causing major RF interference. Something like a coil is sparking or generating radio frequencies that drown out the AM stations. A RF filter could be installed that might help.

i appreciate your answer and will take your advice; however, I wonder if it has anything to do with having a serius radio installed. Perhaps I must prescribe to get AM. I hope not.

Does the static go up and down with the engine speed? If so it is ignition generated.

I've printed you advise and will show it to my mechanic this coming week. Thanks!

It pays to read and follow directions. All I needed to do was turn off the sirius radio. Even though I didn't subscribe, it was on and ready for me to do so. All I did was turn off the sirius radio that I didn't even know was on. It automatically is on every time I start the car and I need to turn it off.
