Noisy ground loop WJ
I am looking for information specific to the WJ only. I have read everything there is online to do with Ground Loops, and just need specific advise. When driving during the day there is zero noise produced through my aftermarket amplifier. As soon as I turn on any of the lights I hear a buzz. It gets louder as the dash, then fog, then headlights, then spotlights come on. Being that there is zero noise when the lights are off I know I have a good ground on the seat bracket. My question is where to locate my upgraded chassis to NEG ground wire. I currently have it connected to the factory ground bolt nearest the NEG battery post on the fender. Can I do something else to quiet up the lights?
PS Before you ask, I use all factory speaker wiring and do not have the power wires run by them.
