|02-12-2013 03:27 PM|
I just tried the L and R test. When it's all the way on one side, either Right or Left and full blast, there is NO STATIC. It only happens when I have it centered.
What's the deal?
I want to call out the dealership, so they can fix my system.

It is consistent static, on songs with Base and when it is at 60%+ volume.
I believe I have 6.1 (2 by the front, 2 tweeters, 2 on the roof, and a sub). It does it with everything: AUX, CD, and Radio. I've replaced the speaker already, and I've replaced the entire Radio.
The dealer tried to blame my 'style' of music. Really!!!??
I want to take to an Audio shop, and flip the bill to Chrylser. We all know they won't pay for it.
Any thoughts? I'll try the Left/Right test later tonight.

|johnpmcelroy||And do a load test on the charging system, alternators will slowly die with no advanced notice. Also, with the car running, turn everything on, lights, wipers, radio, everything, turn radio on half way, and observe your head lights and see if they are pulsating or flashing. And another question, are you at idle or driving when you hear the static. And what are the RPM's|

|Binx||Sounds like the head unit is bad. Popping, muffled sound would be blown speaker, tweeter would sound high pitched and crackley. If your plugging in to aux with a 3.5mm cable or Usb from a source its probably the cable moving or bad cable. Move the cable around with that source selected and see if you get the same sound. Does it stop when its all the way to one side, L or R?|

|johnpmcelroy||If you can get access to the speaker wires, run some wiring from left to right and right to left and see if the problem moves left. That would mean your Radio/CD player is bad if it did move left. If not, start looking for loose wiring on the Radio and to the speakers.|

|johnpmcelroy||Do you know the difference between static and something might be loose by the speaker. And what speaker setup do you have. 4.1, 5.1 or 6.1. Do you have the tweeters on the dash. What. How bout some more clues.|

|johnpmcelroy||Sounds like the whole radio CD player needs to be changed|

They said it was the speaker, so they replaced it.
It's still happening.
I'm taking it in again next week, but I doubt they know how to diagnose the problem properly.

I haven't because I've only had the Jeep for three months and have only noticed it two or three times- I know it'd be a diagnostic PITA.

And none of you have taken it to a dealership to get them to check it out?
Ya'll are nuts!

Happens in my '10 as well. Sounds scratchy, like moving a busted cable around.
|09-25-2012 09:27 PM|
Anyone know if it has something to do with the Ground or power coming in?
I'm taking it in for service in a few more clicks, and wanted to get it sorted out. I'm just not sure the dealer knows what it is based on my last visit.

|wrh3||It happens in ours as well, not constantly but sporadically.|

I'm getting weird static coming from my speakers. This only happens when I use the auxiliary or CD, radio is fine. It usually triggers if I increase the volume over half or so. It's also more noticeable when the song is a little more bass heavy.
I've tried adjusting the bass and it doesn't help. It seems to be coming from the right side, but when I play with the balance adjustment, left/right, it stops being static. This only happens when I have it centred (L/R). Playing around with Back/Front doesn't seem to make a difference.
I've brought it into the dealer and they replaced the Passenger side speaker. Then when I drove it off the lot, it started again.
Its a 2012 JKUR. Is this happening to anyone else?
