Radio fix on the cheap?
Posted 24 September 2009 - 02:11 AM
This has only started happening recently, and I haven't done anything with my coil, but I have been messing around with my dual battery set-up.
I know these are cheap radios, but I like the look of the stocker in my dash .
Any other suggestions?

Get rid of that extra battery. Sell your extra battery for like 30 bucks cheap. This will fix your problem and you will have extra money in your pocket. Put it back to stock, way, and you won't have a problem.

You may want to get a cap filter for the alt as well.

As for the sound, it's probably alternator, since it is directly related to the RPM's of the engine and the noise increases as engine RPM increases.
As for the dual battery, I have it running in parallel, but it also has an isolation switch in-case I want to run one battery down while parked, so that the isolated one will still be there to start up the engine.
I have had the dual battery system for years with no problems, only recently I removed the secondary one to put in a trailer to power my electric bike project.
I will see if that ground is needing attention. zzz
