    I listen to AM radio sometimes and noticed something today. I kept on having a lot of static and found out that is was coming from my A/C compressor when it was running. Is there anyway to fix this?

    I was listening to OU-Texas and if you had read my other post, you know how serious that is.

    BRB,

    Sounds like a grounding issue....most types of "I hear the engine revving in the stereo" type problems are.

    When it's only the AM radio that's affected, it's more likely to be antenna related. First steps are to locate the antenna wire where it connects to the radio and make sure it's clean and corrision-free and reattach it. It might just be that the antenna is old, or maybe poor quality. A new antenna might help this also.

    If the same problem exists on FM stations or when listening to CDs/Tapes the grounding problem is somewhere besides the antenna, and you will need to dig deeper for the solution.


    Hope that gets you started.
