radio not picking up fm stations

Hi, Ive got the original radio in my 98 jeep GC, it works fine, however it will not pickup but maybe 2 radio stations but I know it should be getting alot more, Ive checked the antenna connection on the back and it is snug and the fender antenna is present and isnt loose on the body. I swapped a friends aftermarket radio in and it will not pickup stations either,Im stumped as to why this is going on? any help would be appreciated

Re: radio not picking up fm stations

I'll admit that I'm not too familiar with your build, but if you have a rear grid integrated antenna and you have tinted your rear window, it will interfere with reception.

Metal film tint will destroy reception...

3M makes a non metal film tint that works well in this application.

Hope this helps.

Bob
