    Ground Wires

    I think I have a bad ground connection because it sounds like I have electrical interference coming through the radio from my plug wires.

    Under acceleration I start to hear a strange noise that sounds like a spark or a short and it sounds like it is coming through the head unit. It happens when the radio is off though as well.

    I am really puzzled on this sound but I think this may be the solution. Where are the ground wires located and is there a way to test to interference?

    Found the locations in an other thread on here. Anyone got an idea on the noise besides that though?
