I have great FM but No AM stations can be tuned in. No real Electrical noise (alternator) coming thru when it is on AM.
Any Ideas....

Your antenna amplifier may have died. This will generally impact AM much more than FM. I think this is a common failure in some models from what I've read.

Or did you upgrade your HU? If so you need to use a powered antenna adapter to connect it. Available at Crutchfield or other places.

the antenna preamp is located in the base of the antenna. do a search here on "enfig" in this forum, or just go to enfig.com.
the enfig replacement is cheaper than any place else, but it needs a separate power wire attached; the VW antenna gets its power via the coax.
