It's probably your spark plug wires. Look up spark plug wires for your model. Certain bikes require greater resistance before the signal reaches the cylinders. It's a common problem with radio waves.

I have relatively new static on a Bose radio that's regularly used and has been in the same spot for years.

Sara, when you stand in front of it , you may be blocking the out side interference causing static. Try relocating radio, to see if it makes a difference.

Though not familiar with auto that old, I would guess that there is a voltage leakage in system. Spark plug wires, coil, condenser all are culprits. Old trick to see if there is voltage leakage is to examine engine and wires while hood up in dark garage. In any case, if the above components have not been replaced in a very long while it is always a good idea to do so. It will only help.

Cannot receive info on weather channels

What model scanner? Where are you located? Make sure "squelch" control is turned to where you hear static, then turn it back just a little bit so that the static goes away; then you should be able to scan for WX channels if you have the antenna on the radio. Let me know more info to try and help you more.

When i brake on my 2003 supercrew, it sounds almost as if a horn is blowing. very annoying

Hello, You may have a bad brake booster, there can be a check valve in the feed line to the booster. You need to have a pressure check done on the brake booster. Be careful not to use any chemical which can dissolve rubber or plastic if you use a spray around the booster. A water spray may indicate a leaking booster if you test it with the engine running. The rpm will change from a leak.

The ABS system should show a "check light" if it is malfunctioning. The modulation inside the brake unit possibly could make noise.

The Traction control, if equipped, can activate a control valve in the intake system to limit engine RPM. When this system works, it shuts off intake air to slow down the engine when the system detects slippage in the rear wheels. If you have a toggle button on the dash to switch off the Traction control, turn the sytem off and try driving it and see if the noise goes away. Debris in the rear rotor "drum" brake could possibly blind a wheel sensor counting the revs and activate the Traction control

Idle speed control "motor" is a type of intake air control used to smooth out the engine. It operates in a air chamber and its the last thing I can think of that even remotely could make a noise.

That is static off the motors electrical's system. Go to a radio shack and get a noise suppressor the positive end go on the positive end of the radio and the negative end go to ground this will bleed off the static just like a capacitor in a power supply. Ask one of the old guys at Radio Shack.

Unstable electrics resulting in various problems.

Sounds like another VW made in Mexico.
Have the ECU checked for shorts, it sounds like it needs replacement.
Also check your vacuum hoses for leaks.

Motorola T5500 Scanning problem

Most likely it is stopping at a channel which has RF (radio frequency) activity. The activity doesn't have to be another radio with someone talking. It could simply be something transmitting on the same MHz. The only way to know for sure is to try the radios in a different location (as in moving away from the problem). If you want to avoid this "noise" you can turn on your interference eliminator, and it should block out anyone transmitting on the frequency (unless they set their interference eliminator to the same code as yours.)

If the noise continues when you try the radios in a different location (more than 5-10 miles away), then you will have to investigate a problem with the radios themselves.

Radio effected by brakes?

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.
