Need some help here please. I have a 2002 1200 LT with the radio / cassette. I'm getting a static / distortion in what sounds like my rear speakers (not the fronts from what I can tell) after the radio is on for a couple of minutes and seems to heat up. Engine does not have to be running. If I fade rear to front I still have the static / noise in the rear speakers. Balance does not make a difference. Mute reduces it but un-mute returns the noise. Playing the CD or radio makes no difference, it comes on with either. When the noise comes on, the radio/CD is still playing (I can hear the songs) but volume is reduced (distorted?) and the snap, crackle, pop overshadows the music. If I turn off the radio for a minute and turn it back on it seems to fix itself but after a couple of minutes the noise is back. I found a previous thread from Aug 5th, 2008 (3 years to the day, how interesting) from gdroege describing very similar problems but the thread ends on the 6th. I was wondering if anyone has or had any updates and or solutions. I will try the CD wire solution as suggested by sparky in that thread but that was 3 years ago. Anybody? ... Bueller? ...
