Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS
Just recently my Cadillac CTS 2004 developed this problem: the radio goes from clear to full of static when the brakes are applied.I have tested this everyday just to make sure it was not a fluke. When I apply the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign, the radio station becomes full of static --doesn't matter what station it's on. I can tap the brakes and evoke the same response from the radio.
Any idea what's causing this? Wouldn't you know my warranty expired only about 3 months ago.
To clarify for mcalkins3, the radio in my CTS is the original factory radio.

If this happens when the car is still you have voltage interference between brake light voltage & antenna. If this happens from motion check all wire connections, loose antenna wire, to antenna.
