Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

Car audio crackles and thuds when off

My car audio system has started to crackle out of all of the speakers with no pattern to when it happens. it doesnt matter weather the cd player is selected or the radio the crackle is still there. even when the head unit is turned off the crackle noise is still there. the only way to stop is is to turn the ignition off or take the fuses out of the head unit or the fuse to the amp. the amp is bmw fitted. the audio equipment is Digital Power SoundModul and is a rerofit kit for the bmw mini
Thanks
Tim

a bad ground somewhere. Could be shot speakers as well....the crackling is sometimes mistaken for poor radio reception, try a CD, see if you still get it.

Try leaving your cell phone at home and driving around. Cell phones and other devices many times will try using speaker wires as an extension of their antennae which is RF interference and therefore the sound of this crackling can go through your speaker system. This can happen at home or in a car.
