    It's sounds like interference, My wife drives the truck and you here a whining sound come through the speakers and it intensifies when she accelerates. I'm thinking it could be a bad ground.. or just the stereo is going bad. It will even do it when she drives and turns the stereo off.
    Anyone heard of this? and if so.. what's the fix or areas to look at?

    Are you sure it's coming from the speakers? It would take some PFM (Pure F**king Magic) to get sound out of the speakers when the stereo is turned off. Does the system have an external amplifier that is still powered on when the stereo is off?

    Harry..
    That's a big roger.. it has a Rockford Fosgate amp.. And a subwoofer box in the rear. When Pam disconnected the subwoofer to help her sister move.. the "interference" stopped. I did sound as though it was coming through the speakers.. around where her amp is mounted.
