Ok. this isn't a problem on my R/C however but instead on my Malibu. The signal for my radio is obviously getting weaker as now I can only listed to a few stations from a distance. Have to be close to town to get clear reception anymore. Yesterday while driving home in the rain, I noticed something interesting. When the wipers went up, the signal went down. And vise-versa. When the wipers went down, I could hear the station better. Now not being a sound guy, I haven't the foggiest clue where to begin. I would like to listen to the radio again just like it was when I bought it. Anybody got any suggestions on this? Thanks

i'm guessing you didn't touch your radio at all and this problem starts. i would check the antenna wire and see if it came loose from the radio. unplug it, clean the connections and try again. that's weird.

Sounds to me like there is interference, such as stated above a weak connection in the antenne line. Ground is a possibility as well, but the wipers having an effect on it suggest antenne. Ever have a home stereo where as you walked around the room the signal stranght changed? Same principal. You are either becoming the antenne or interfereing with it.

If the antenna is in the winshield, I would consider getting an external one.

I can fix it. Have a friend take the radiator cap off. You get in and drive it down to the car lot. Buy a Dodge, any Dodge. Drive your new Dodge home. Have the friend put the radiator cap on the new Dodge. Problem solved. ;D
