I recently got my alternator changed and since then, every time i play my stereo it works for a while and then once i change speeds or downshift it goes out and you can here static like its a loose wire. I turn it off and turn it back on after about 3 minutes and its perfectly fine until i slow my speed. I have a 1993 ford F150.

if your cd player still works and plays through the speakers, but your radio wont play through the speakers. i would suggest checking the antenna in the back of the stereo. most stereo's wont even play static if the antenna is disconnected. if the antenna is connected behind the stereo go to the passenger side door usually under the glove box is another antenna connection check to see if that one is intact. if that one is it usually means the antenna itself is not tight enough on the body.
have you tried using cd + or - r's and some units dont recognise all,also cd player may only read mp3 format dics, not itunes, you can reformat using software from web site....... swift sound file converter
The player is recognizing that a CD has been inserted but is not able to read it.
Sometimes the lens assembly becomes contaminated and obscures the laser. I'd try using a commercial "lens cleaning CD" two or three times and then try a CD again. These lens cleaning CD's are widely available. If cleaning does not help, the player need professional service.
i have alpine stereo's in all my vehicles and i have had this problem. if you run a 10-14 gauge constant wire from the stereo directly to the battery the stereo will not shut down in protection mode. it is not the cd it is the stereo going into protection mode because of lack of current not voltage. i hope this helps after i did this i could play the stereo as loud as it can go until my battery died
you have to change the cd read setting it might got set to cd read 2 it needs to be cd read 1 in standby mode press menu button scroll through with track button till you see cd read and set it to cd read 1 if not in standby mode try in cd mode same steps
