    Radio static with led lights..

    Does anyone else only have static on your radio when you have your auxiliary led lights turned on? Did not have his problem with my Other led lights. When the lights are off the static goes away. Any help to why that is? Bad ground? Bad connections? Bad switch?

    Radio static with led lights..

    My led headlights never did this but when they crapped out and I switched to HID I now have this problem. Iíve gotta swap out the harness cuz of a bad relay and was hoping to resolve the static issue at the same time if I can figure out what it is.

    Edit: some googling and seems putting adding ferrite choke can help. Gonna see if I have one laying around on an unused cable somewhere and see what happens.

    I tried the ferrite choke. Help maybe a little, adding more didnít help anymore. My pods by the windshield are the only ones that do it. Thinking of just removing them

    My windshield hinge pods, super cheap amazon, do this. I tried moving the ground etc nothing helped. Just too close to the antenna I think. No issues with lightbar headlights sidelights or back lights. When I rarely use those lights I just switch the radio to my phone.

    I have never had this issue, but I run my LEDs through a switch source rather than a direct switch. But in my experience of electrical problems, it's always a ground issue...

    Reached out to the manufacturer and they said to clean the ground as fist step in troubleshooting then reach out if it isnít solved.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
