    Will that get rid of that sound? It jus sounds like it's turned all the way up and I'm sure you know the sound lol

    it is worth checking if the pre-amp is working ok i'd say it would need checking out at a car audio repair shop as they will have the equipment etc to diagnose what exactly is the problem

Humming noise when I turn on radio. What could be the problem and how can I fix it?


If the humming noise is present with the engine off the fault is in the radio , if only with the engine running it is receiving a signal from some electoral part of the engine.

2004 GMC Envoy Radio high pitched noise when off and static


In my opinion, it's almost certainly the radio. Even when turned off, it is still alive managing a few other things (like chimes) until you exit the vehicle, and I suspect that part of the radio is faulty.

Won't turn over... just makes a clicking sound... and a wierd humming sound.


Try cleaning your terminals at the battery, even if not corroded. In my years as an alarm/radio installer I have come across this problem constantly, especially on GM vehicles.

I have a humming noise in my 2003 ss Chevy Silverado. It's loud in the cab but you can't hear it outside. The hum sounds like underneath somewhere. I heard it might be a belt or the tires. thank...


If it were the belt you would hear it clearly with the hood open! So if you don't it probably isn't the belt - but you should still check the condition of the belt - any cracks?
The tires would be loudest if the windows were down and driving - if that isn't the case - probably not that either.

Humming noise could be many things and you need to localize the problem. If it sounds like an electronic hum you might want to check the fuel pump since you almost sit on the tanks.

Try turning everything off - radio, ac, etc off and see if you can at least localize the sound to a particular area.

'03 Merc Mountaineer humming noise when turning


If same tires as before & air pressure set correctly, or as usual, a humming when swerving, or turning one way or the other or both, it's usually a pretty good indicator.
