Only can happen to me but I bought a used SSR with a factory radio (probably not the radio that came in it but a SSR radio none the less). It had a Satellite antenna still mounted on the top, just over the top of the front windshield and centered. It had NO reception except a station within 2 or 3 miles. I purchased a Navigation/AM/FM with back-up camera then subscribed to Sirius. Had installed and Sirius, Nav and back-up camera worked fine. Still no range on the AM/FM, 2 or 3 miles from station. Technician said that there was probably a break somewhere in the windshield antenna and he had no way of finding the break or fixing it if he did. Because most everything from the windshield back moves saw no place to mount an external antenna. I remember some kind of car that had the radio antenna mounted to the pillar on a slant. Has anybody ever had antenna problems? What did you do? What kind of car was that had the slanted antenna on the pillar? I'm not replacing the windshield!!
