I recently purchased a 2000 Tiburon, pretty much loaded including the best factory AM/FM--cassette/CD player radio. The AM band is impossible--with static and whirring noises when the engine is on. When the engine is off, no problema! What might be causing this interference? Has anyone else experienced this? If the radio acted this way when it was new, I can't believe anyone would buy the
car. HELP!

tammy,
what you are probably experiancing is RFI, radio frequency interferance.
this is often caused by the ignition system. the sprk plug wires are where i would
start in trying to eliminate it. as the wires get older the shielding around them begins
to break down. spark plugs or an improper or damaged ground wire can also cause RFI. just advice from personal experience with other makes and models of cars.
