I put in the new AM/FM/CD player the other day and it worked fine (after I hooked up the powered antenna for AM)...that is, until I drove the car.
Seems that every time the IMA is at work assisting or regenerating I get a squealing noise thru the speakers.
Does anyone have a fix here, or did I miss something? I remember from years ago we used to have to attach a condensor on the 12 volt line (or something like that) to prevent generator or alternator interference.

Thanks guys !

my experience has been, that if the squealing pitch rises and falls with the RPMs, then it's a GROUND wire issue. you'll need to find a better ground.

i grounded my stereo system to the bolt that secures the seat track. if that doesn't work, see if you can route the ground back to the negative battery terminal.

also, route your power cable(s) as far away from the speaker wires, RCA wiring, etc. as you can.

good luck!
