Radio Problem (Maybe)

I have posted before on my 04 left speakers not working. I decided to live with it until this winter. suspect the amp and I know what my options are.

Here is the strange part. I was in the garage the other day to get the snowblower out. I could hear a faint static noise coming from under the cover. (bike hooked up to tender). Okay what the hay. It was coming from the left speakers. (radio was off)

So a thought occured to me we obviously have a battery drain. I then decided to pull the radio fuse and stop the circuit and deal with it later.

wait for it!. The damn noise is still coming from the left speakers.
OK NOW WHAT. before i systematically remove and replace each fuse any ideas.
Thanks for help in advance from the great wise ones.

Re: Radio Problem (Maybe)

Check all the connections on the speakers. The noise may be RF interference coming from the charger into the wiring harness if it's not properly grounded. Unplug the charger and see if it stops.
