Hello! Engine noise is removed via shielded cable...The shields are then grounded to the chassis...They are loose or corroded at the contact point...Rather than hunt for its location...You can ground it to the floor pan...If your vehicle is equipped with the Premium sound system...Pins #3 and #7 on the 8 pin radio connector are the shields...Splice two runs of 10 gauge Green wire to each of these pins and connect both ends to a ring connector...Solder connections...Bolt ring connector to the floor pan...Insure contact point is bare metal...

If bumps affect the noise then you should be looking at loose wires and connections for the speakers and at the back of the system. Look for a bad earth or the earth wire connected up to something that is not really a good earth

You should be able to check/trace without a ton of disassembly but it could be connection in a whole different place-Also that is fairly common with Toyota that it's actually in the radio itself-Ask yourself did anyone work on any part of car just prior to noticing this condition-Jt & Good Luck

I just bought a 1996 lincoln mark 8. very good condition well takin care of. the previous owner told s there was something wrong with the stereo when we heard it it just sounded like a blown speaker. we...

It could be a ground wire. I'm curious did the previous owner install the radio? Sometimes people just install a radio to the nearest power,ground and remote wire without any precautions on what they tap in to. Part of what you are hearing is alternator and/or ignition noise. Between the two noises my concern is that the installer might have tapped into a blower motor wire for either power or ground. The noise itself can be fixed with a 20 amp noise filter such as this one but I suspect a bigger issue. Either you or someone knowledgeable with car audio installation should pull that radio out and check all the connections and where they are tapped in to and install it properly. The engine noise itself can be fixed with the noise filter. This popping sound I feel is a short from mis installation. I have seen cars get dash fires from this. I never like to worry people but I am also honest. I would tend to this soon. Good luck.

Cracking sound from Radio Speakers

I disconnected the amp and ran jumper wires for the proper speakers (two wires per speaker eight total) . Basically I bypassed the amp now all speakers work and sound fine.
