Is it only on radio that causes the static? Check the wiring at the back. Did you install the head unit? Which unit is it?

could that be electrical noise coming from the Engine / alternator/anything thats turned on when the ignition is on :S

I mean you could put smoothing capacitors in all the wiring for the radio, but if u dont know what im talking about dont bother.

But it does sound like electrical noise

I have a similar question - when the radio is on and I put an indicator on, the clicking is amplified through the stereo. (Not when the CD is on though)

And when the heating is on, there is a slight crackling sound inside the trims at the back!

What should I check for?

I've got this problem! My back speakers crackle a lot during playing a CD or playing the radio. For some reason when playing the CD, the volume went up and down and then turned off altogether. The crackling is also present when playing the radio and I'm sure it's only the back speakers. The CD works fine on my computer. The weird thing is that if I turn the engine off and leave the car for a while, then turn the engine back on again and start playing music, it runs fine for a while before the problem starts up again. I need help :sad:
