Check antenna amplifier behind right side trunk panel. It will be a little red or green box about the size of a pack of cigaretttes.

The connection from the antenna to the amplifier can become loose. Volvo had a service bulletin on it some time ago. The fix was to fashion a bit of brass shim stock to hold the connector in place.

The amplifier itself could have failed, but not likely.

Just because you are in the city does not mean you should have better reception. Signal propagation, especially at FM broacast frequencies can be unpredictable in the clutter of buildings.

There are 2 antennas, the FM radio is in the rear bumper, the AM radio is located in the rear windshield area behind the C pillars.
