"whining" noise from aux. output from stereo

I get a whining noise from the stereo when playing mp3 player with the
player's charger connected to the cigarette lighter. I read somewhere that
someone had a similar problem & had to install a filter. I couldn't find
the post. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Re: "whining" noise from aux. output from stereo

While your's is most likely generated by the alternator, the Explorers DO
have a very noisy (RF-wise) fuel pump in the tank. I had Ford install their
OEM noise suppressor on mine (a '97) and it completely eliminated my
interference problems (shortwave/amateur radio 'HF' radio spectrum).

You need to get a better quality 'regulated' power supply for your MP3
player.
