Re: Lousy AM band reception

My '90 200q with Bose system is doing EXACTLY the same thing - right down to
also having no sound in left front.  Only difference is mine has no speakers
in dash, but left door speaker is making no sound.  Did you happen to listen
to the FM at all?  My FM reception, while not nearly as poor as the AM, is
not what it should be.  I have no idea what the problem is, but I'll be
trying to troubleshoot mine this weekend also, so if I learn anything I'll
let you know.
