I just had a Kenwood DNX6140 Nav system installed. FM comes in but no AM. I know they put a adaptor in but which kind should it be. I know it has been mentioned here but I searched all over and can't really find what I am looking for. Also do anyone else have this system installed?

I know they use the same antenna but my understanding is that the European radios using different grounding or something. There are no setting to check. I just do a autoscan for AM but it doesn't stop or select any frequency.

Our Smart Center might be able to help you out. Darin installed my aftermarket stereo and helped get the AM working after it was oh-so-weak for a couple weeks. It didn't take him long and everything was golden! I could again hear those traffic reports.
