i need input from you a4 owners, especially if you fit into
one or more of the following categories:
premium audi package
no cd changer
gps navigation system
when listening to am radio, every overpass i go under, or wires,
makes a terrible screeching sound. this is somewhat normal for
am radio, but i don't think it should be this pronounced.
also, when i put on the brake, the lights or something sends
screechy interference through the sound system. only when on
am radio, though.
now that the gps system as simply stopped working (doesn't even
power on), the interference seems worse. loud, screaming whistle
when not tuned to an am station. the space between stations
should be noisy, staticky, but not like feedback.
this is the second head unit (symphony) i have had. the first was
replaced right away because, like many, it wouldn't hold a station
when it was power cycled.
possible guesses are the gps system, really. some sort of wiring
proximity problem. same with the brake light. but i am not sure.
i'm seeking list experience - weather it's btdt or "mine is the
same and doesn't have any problems".
