No AM signal on new Pioneer deck

I recently purchased a Pioneer DEH-P3000IB. After installation I noticed that only the FM band was working. The AM was just fuzz. What could be the cause? I listen to baseball on AM (a favourite pastime). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem with a sony deck and a new (to me) car. Honda civics have some sort of amplified antenna that needs 12 volts. It seemed the power antenna lead on my deck didn't provide constant power, so I got it from another lead. Then my amplified antenna would turn on and I could get signal.

Hope this helps...
