This is Alternator noise, you need to install a DC power filter, go to the link below for a high quality filter.

Hello,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Many newer cars have vacuum assist transmissions. Indications are that you have a loose or broken hose. These draft lines are usually connected to the intake manifold area on top and snake over long distances across often hot surfaces. Trouble shooting these malfunctions can be complicated and dangerous since other devices may also share these vacuum circuits. Have a trustworthy friend fully depress the "E" brake, hold the regular brake, putt the car in reverse, and then you can get a closer listen to were the noise is coming from. This leaking hose can vary in color and size ranging from pencil lead to thumb diameter. It might be a cheep fix. There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Be careful and good luck. God Bless.

Engine noise coming through one channel


This sounds like alternator whine. Do you have the power and ground connected to your battery, or through the accessory power? Make sure the power and ground wires are sufficient size, and connected to your battery, and make sure you have the power wire fused no more than a foot or two from the battery. If it is only on the right channely, maybe this wire is getting feedback from another wire. Seperate the wires if this is the case.

Wires create magnetic fields, and if a speaker wire is next to a power wire or something, you will hear a noise, typically high pitched whining.

RCA F32650 production May 2003. Was working fine. Turned it on the next day, got no picture and a high pitched whining noise.  Please let me know what I should do to fix it.


If it weren't for the high pitch whining noise. I would say it probably is an internal fuse inside the chasis. It is rated at 1.5 to 2.0 amps. With the whining noise it sounds like a trouble shooting bench
job. Problems occur when a electrical/electronics device is turned on and turned off. Inrush voltage,
when it is turned on, can go up to three times more than normal. This also happens at turn off. Solid state components usually fail at this time. I don't feel that this is a problem that can be fixed in the home.---BBB

RCA Whine, Newly Installed Amp


The shield ground is probably open in the head unit. You can check the shield ground by measuring the resistance from the shield of the RCA connector to the chassis of the head unit. It should be near 0 ohms. Disconnect all RCA cables from the head unit before testing.

If you find that the shield ground is indeed open, the following link has more information for a temporary fix.
