Hey Binx,

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.

Thanks!

Hey,

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.

Thanks!

Good Pointer.

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

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.

I did take mine in.
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.

thinkxingu 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.

thinkxingu Happens in my '10 as well. Sounds scratchy, like moving a busted cable around.

psywash Still happening.

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.

Speaker Static

Hey Everyone,

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?

Thanks
P.
