Before you tint your windows, tell the installer you listen to AM radio, LOL

both chargers are tinted... and I don´t have any problem.

Your problem is with am, but what about fm?? anyway, sometimes when the installer is preparing the tinted paper and installing, if the installer is not carefully in the process, maybe he "cut" a little wire in the window... I had this problem with a neon 2nd G, but with the defroster, only works 2 lines!!! and why?? when I tinted my windows, the installer cut with the knife a little part (not visible) and the lines loose the connectivity between each other, so your antenna has a cut, check it :D

When we had our tinted, the shop warned us by using a metallic tint would reduce the am radio reception. We used it anyways and haven't any problems. The am radio in our car is used in case of a traffic jam. Seems that am stations have more news than fm stations.

Of course people still listen to AM, how else would you find out how to follow current politics and believing the spin the talking heads add to it, LOL.

I've seen HAM radio operators driving around with ten foot whip-antennas on their cars. Maybe you could do that.
