Question about Roadmaster (VR500CSBT)
I have a noise that is present on mmost local stations here in the Dallas/FT.Worth area and is more noticeable as the volumn passes "25" on the volumn scale. Does not matter if truck is running or not as long as key is on . Ihave a Commander XM radio that I ca'nt use because it gets worse when it is turned on. I used a factory connector adapter to wire straight to the connector from the VR3 radio that was purchased from Crutchfield. I am an ASE auto tech. with much experience but have never come across this until now. Thank You, Alan
First of all what kind of truck is it? Where is it grounded? Is the radio mounted directly to the car's chassis or is it suspended in a dash kit? What other aftermarket products are installed in the truck?
You can test for radiated noise too...turn on the ignition and bring a portable radio into the car, see if it has the same interference.
