Bose Radio Static


Recommended Posts

Have a 96 SLS with the Bose System. The problem: When the car is stationary the radio is very clear, with the engine running or not. When the car starts to roll "3 or 4 mph up" the radio picks up a static.

Have any of the members had this problem? If so, what was a remedy, or has anyone have a suggested remedy.

I have wondered if it could be related to the Traction Control System. Thanks All.

My first thing to do, would be to check the antenna connections on each end,

At the radio and at the antenna end.

The movement of the car could be causing a bad connecting to vibrate and cause static.

I think there is also an EMF shield on it...somewhere...but I have absolutely no idea where.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

If you have the same problem as me on my 96, you are speaking about the AM radio, at about 5 mph, you get static.

With the help of John Sundeen, an EMF engineer from GM, I was able to determine that this involved the electronic suspension, by pulling fuses.

There is not much you can do about this

You were right on about the EMF by the way

By the way, my interference was cleared up when I got passive struts..
