Put your hand on the ariel and see if the volume increases, if it does then the ariel is not grounded properly.

The AM radio antenna is part of the rear window. If you had your car tinted or bought it tinted, the tint installer may have disconnected the antenna.

That's what I found on my sedan.

ANOTHER reason to avoid getting your car tinted...as if you needed 'reason'.
