Poor A.M. Radio Reception

Hello all,

I have the UC6 monsoon 6CD stereo in my 07 G6 GTP. This thing has the worst radio reception. My 95 P/U has better reception than this stereo in the same locations. F.M. seems to work well and I guess I'm lucky the CD Changer still works too. I want to keep the original radio and would like any info on how to get this repaired. Thanks

You have whats called a Power radio antenna module.
Its a $14 part that will cause poor reception and crackling speakers when on AM if it gets a short.
The part number is # 10375770.

Are you under warranty?

Also remember that your antenna is inside the glass on your back window.
Lots of people forget this (yes I did!) when they have tint installed and if they
get metal tint (yup...I sure did) then your reception takes a big hit.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

Thanks for the info. Mine is an Arizona car originally with dark tint in the rear. Is there an installation procedure or anything that can tell me what I have to do to find this module or even install it. Is this something covered under an extended factory warranty? I have approx 62k on my GTP. Sounds like it should be easy but GM has surprised me in the past. Thanks again...
