    Radio Noise (Not the regular old Alternator stuff)

    This is one that I haven't seen about on the forums, I searched and came up empty handed... My radio when the truck is running has a crackling type sound in the music. But when I play a cd it goes away, this is all while the truck is running. Yet while the truck is off and the key is in the backward position I can play the radio and there is no crackling noise... Its werid, Any help would be appreciated greatly!!!! I mean if it was alternator whine why would the cd play clear?

    Most likely induced noise picked up by the antenna. Most likely source is the sparkplug wires. Sounds silly, but it happens. How old are your plug wires? You you have a performance ignition system? An upgraded ignition system and older worn plug wires have been know to radiate noise that messes with radio reception.
