Here is the problem.. I just bought a CD player, 300 watt Amp and some other things for my zuk (speakers and such). On wed, i set it all up and it worked perfectly. I just had everything laid out on the seats, nothing bolted down. So yesterday i made some nice brackets to mount everything up high, and now some new problems came up.. When i turn the key to the Acc position, and turn the music on, everything is fine. When i turn it to the Start position (so now everything can be operated like turn signals) and turn it on, after about 10 seconds the sound gets all weird, like all staticy and such. Also when i turn the windsheild wipers on, you can hear the noise of the motor through the speakers! Same goes with the signal lights.. and when you turn anything else on theres a little click everytime it is turned on or off. I dont understand why it does this when the key is in the Start position and no the acc position. I wired the power supply to what the instructions said. ON the CD player i put the yellow memory wire to the positive battery termanal, the ground to the negitave battery, and the red positive wire to one of the white wires under the dash that i belive powered the stock radio, these wires are controlled by the ignition switch. For the amp i have the memory wire going to the other white wire under the dash, also controlled by the ignition switch. Ive tried everything i can think of but it doesnt fix it. Ive ran the 3 power supply wires for the amp directly to the battery, doesnt help, ive ran the Cd players to the battery, doesnt help. so in other words i was bypassing the ignition swith, trying to see if that was the problem.
I tried powering the amp by a seperate spare battery i had, and the noise went away! Im thinking it has somthing to do with other things drawing power from the battery, but i still dont get why that has anything to do with it, it does this with the engine running too.
Now, with the key in Start position and the Cd player on, i connected a speaker to the output wires on the cd player and it was fine, no noise no matter what i did. This is really really annoying me becuase im trying to get it done soon so the truck can be moved.. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? Also the return/exchange policy at this store sucks, in order to get an amp or cd player exchaned its goto be installed by a professional
