I bought a used 2016 Spark.
For some reason, the AM radio does not get reception and the power socket/cigarette lighter in the front does not work.
Everything else works fine.
Anybody have any guesses why the AM does not work?

The seller did say there was some rats chewing the wires and he had a harness replaced at the dealer for $1700....
I looked around and do not see any wires chewed under the hood at all, so seems ok there.
But as I said, the rest of the radio functions work fine, FM is fine.
There is jut barely a fuzz sound when tuned into am none of the whining motor sounds or anything.
