Non Electrical Interference From Aerial On Am Reception Only
Posted 02 August 2012 - 07:35 PM
In an attempt to sort it out I took off the aerial and thoroughly cleaned the male and female connectors to remove any possible corrosion. I then applied vaseline and tightened it up. Hey presto it seemed to work the next time I went out on the road - crackling gone. However, not a happy ending because the 3 month warranty is due to expire this weekend I did a final check and the crackling has re-appeared.
I can replicate the crackling by moving the aerial up and down manually with the engine switched off, so to me, that rules out everything not aerial related.
I took the car in today to Dagenham Motors and they say that they cannot find the cause, however I am not convinced that they quite get it. The person who booked in the car says it's because it's AM however being a former radio amateur who knows a bit about broadcast reception I think that as it's not something that has a computer diagnosis they are out of their depth.
If it's not the actual aerial could it be an earthing issue?
Has anybody had a similar problem and managed to resolve it?
Have something to contribute?
