The isolation, also it's assuming you're using the SPOD to ground as well, not using a common like the frame.

Grounding through the SPOD sends the RF interference into the battery where it's buffered out

Just for reference I run one of the Olympus pod lights in the rear of my Jeep and am still getting FM radio interference.

Olympus did finally get back to me (almost like they're on this forum. He told me to return the lights and he will get a new pair sent out as well as test these to see what the problem is. Hopefully the new set will fix the problem...

Well thatís good news. I just finished installing an sPOD under both front seats last night an ran the negative cable to both of them directly from the batter. It was a lot more work do it that way but just figured it was also the best way; glad I did now.

My son got me a nice LED Bar and it does have a built in filter Yet my 2005 f350 diesel Dually gets the same interference and the lights are grounded to Both Batteries and the power feeds off the built in upfitter switch's from the factory. I did some research and have found that almost all vehicles that have a CAN-BUSS are suseptible to the interference. The problem is how the drivers Pulse the led's to get max output from them. Now for the Good news it cost less than $10 to solve this problem. I got 2 Ferrite Clamp or some people call them Ferrite Choke off e-bay and installed them using a double loop on both the 12vdc and the Ground wires as close as I could to the light. This will remove most if not all the RF noise /interference from you vehicle electrical/ can-buss system. I now can get all stations and have NO problems. I hope this helps.
