I have an '04 WRX Wagon (with the factory stereo) that I bought a few months ago. There is only one aggravating problem that I have, and want to avoid going to the dealership to fix (already they've "raped" me over a water bottle causing an air bag problem!). So, here it is:
Every time I accelerate, THE RADIO LOOSES SIGNAL! With some stations, it's completely static!! When I step off the gas, everything comes in fine.
I've checked the connections behind the stereo, I've checked the connection to the antenna - it's all good. I think it may be a chassis ground that's loose or something? Any ideas??
Please help, I'm starting to loose my mind listening to the same CD's all the time....!!
