Ford ba rear demister interfears with the radio when it on.


Hey everyone this is my first forums so i do Apologize if i do muddle this up.

Recently, I recived my first car. A 2003 ford falcon ba xt. Although I love the car, I have encountered this issue with the rear demisters interfering with the radio. By interfering with the radio, i mean i just lose reception to the radio and it just give out static noise when the rear demisters are on, however as soon as i turn off the rear demister the radio is working fine.

I took the car today at the mechanics next door to the place where I bought the car and he and a couple other mechanics were trying to figure out what the hell is going on. He tried to check and ensure that the wires are all correct, check if there is no problem with all the wires at the back where the windscreen and the antenna are and still have came across the same result. Eventually, he contact fords and said that this is a factory fault.

Has anyone exprience this issue with your ba and if so what your solution???

Sorry about the late reply but it turn out that there was a problem with the windscreen and since my car is under warranty they replace the windsceen free of charge. TWICE!!! because the first time when they put it in the windscreen, it was rattling like hell so i demanded them to replace the windscreen. However when they replace the windscreen the second time, there was not rattling and no inference with the demister when the radio is on

it would be a fault in the rear windscreen, im pretty sure of it because the radio cables run from bottom to top of the rear windscreen and the demisters run from left to right, you will probably find that there is some interferance between the two and would need a new rear windscreen. gl with it
