I just replaced my factory radio in my 98 323ic, the factory head unit worked fine, great reception. I put in an Alpine CDA 9815(used) amps, sub, and xm. But now I get a weak FM and AM reception. Barley any. I took it back to where it was hooked up they said they had hooked up an FM amplifier last time and that was the problem. So they took it out. When i was at the shop they were showing me how the Fm worked now and a few stations did. but as soon as i drove I lost most of the stations. Any suggestions. Could the radio be bad?
