Do you mean loud static or a faint hiss? Some models will have no audio when the memory fuse is blown. If it is, the clock will reset to 12:00 and the stations will go back to the factory presets every time you turn off the ignition. If this is the case, look for what else doesn't work. The memory circuit is always tied to a system that's always hot such as the horn, dome lights, or cigarette lighter.
These radios have very little trouble with the audio circuits. If you don't find a blown fuse, pull the radio out to read me the model number. There are a bunch of Chrysler-built cassette radios and cd radios that have a 100 percent failure rate. They often fail after a jump start, but that is just hurrying up the inevitable. The cd / cassette combos are built by Mitsubishi and are very high quality and don't have this problem.
