Wanted to post some research in order to help anyone who may have the same problem.
I was getting intermittent static and weird, morse-code like beeping sounds on AM radio. So bad you could not even listen to AM. The strongest few stations were fine, but all the rest were terrible. Seemed like some days it would be OK, other days bad.
Had dealer look at it, they had no clue. Did a little research and found similar problem on another Ford forum. Google FocusFanatics AM Radio Static, you will find it. Some on that forum had experienced the same problem on various Ford models.
Turns out the Antenna Base, part number 18936 is a known problem. It is about a $50 part. You have to drop the headliner in the back of the car to replace it. There is a You Tube video on that (search 2014 Fusion Headliner Antenna Base, you will find it). Doesn't look too hard.
I tapped on the antenna base on my car with a block of wood, sure enough, the problem either went away or came back as I tapped. When it worked, AM came in great. In my case, after providing this info to the dealer, I am waiting hear back. They have been good and am sure they will fix it under warranty.
Hope this helps someone at some point! Now excuse me, I have to go listen to some hate-filled AM radio host . Actually in my case, it is polka music and farm reports .
