Wj Radio help needed.

Hello Jeep Forum,

I have a '02 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the upgraded stock radio but with aftermarket speakers. it has developed a problem where when I am accelerating the radio static’s away. When I first start the Jeep same problem. Radio goes almost dead with static when this happens. Does not do this when off but in accessory. oh yea, doesnt matter if its on am/fm/cd/cd changer

Make sure everything is grounded. There are instances where the engine ground strap breaks and causes static.

I no understand. when you accelerate the static goes away? when you start the start the jeep theres static? the radio goes dead with static? it doesnt do it when the radios off?
Agreed with checking grounds. try making your own grounds for the radio and amp. if there is a bad factory ground this will fix that. If new grounds do not correct the problem it is most likely a failing component. either the radio or amp.

Wj Grounds

Factory Service Manual states there should be a ground from the exhaust pipe to the cross member to the transmission/transfer case page 8-16,17 V8. Also two studs on the intake manifold are grounded to the firewall for radio static suppression !

Have you pulled the radio from the dash to check for a ground from the radio to the frame ? It could be loose.
