Hi all.

I just recently bought an '06 Optima EX V6. When listening to the radio the stations are not coming in clear, and there's distortion. I popped in a CD, and it sounded nice and clear. I've been trying to Google the cause and/or problem, and I believe it's most likely related to the antenna. I have no clue where the antenna is located, or how to access it.

Anyone out there familiar with this, and could potentially help me figure this out?

Problem with both AM and FM does indicate an antenna problem, quite possibly with the connector at the back of the radio or at the junction of the back glass antenna and the (probably coaxial) lead-in cable. (Pre)-amplifier problem would likely affect either AM or FM, but not both.

Almost any antenna will work with AM (provided there's a solid connection), but FM is more particular about the antenna, however a good FM signal will cope with a bad cable connection to some extent.
