Electrical Noise w/ New Head Unit

Turn signals and break lights can be heard (clicking) in speakers. When cigarette lighter in used, AM is 100% disabled. I know there's a thread around here somewhere, so cheers to whoever can answer the Q or point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

-Justin

Something like this, available at Radio Shack (not this brand) or car stereo shops...

thx for the response. Just to be clear, this is not an alternator noise/interference. Rather, when the turn signal is blinking or when I light up the brake lights, u'll here the "click."

is this for that?

thx.

did you wire it in or use a wiring adaptor? If you wired it in, verify which fuse you pulled power from, and where you ran the ground wire. Could be as simple as moving your ground to another location.

It sounds like you may have tapped into the wrong power source for the radio. Not all wiring or fuses you find 12 volts on are suitable for radios, CBs, etc.
