I have the Duratec 24valve V6 engine. This apparently is an electrical problem that involves both the radio & the CD changer. When I start the car up in the morning and turn on the radio, I hear crackling coming from all the speakers and also does it if I switch to the cd changer to play a cd. If I turn off the engine but leave the key in accessories, the crackling is not there and the sound is great. On the other hand, if I start up the engine and put it in drive and drive the car around the crackling stops but anytime I go to press on the brake pedal to slow down or leave my foot on the brake when stopped, it still crackles. I drive 20 miles on the freeway to work every morning and when i'm on the freeway, I seldom if any, have to step on thwe brake pedal so the sound system is good until I pull into the parking lot at work, which requires the brake pedal to be used and reverse to back into the parking space and at that time the crackling returns until I shut off the engine then the sound is fine. I did disconnect the belt to the alternator and started the engine but the crackling was still there. Any other suggestions would be appreciated:o)
have the same problem?
