Unhappy Stero Crackle, Sorry if creating a spam thread, brand new here.

Alright, so for one...I'm new here...So hello to all of you....lets be friends....(just friends).

Anywho, so if I'm in the wrong place...or I'm making the 101th thread about this, please go easy on me.



Now on to my reason for this.

I have a 2011 SS2. And I've loved the car to death. Recently I've noticed a "crackle" while playing music through my iPod via the usb jack.
I've also had it disconnect randomly while browsing...I've had it disconnect while searching for a specific artist/playlist/album/etc.

So I did some digging, and of course Camaro5 popped up with a thread all about it...
"great" I thought, now I can tell my dealer exactly what is wrong...

Well I took it in today....got it back few hours later....they said they couldn't hear/find a thing wrong....
They DID however notice an overheating message my iPod was throwing out stopped when they updated everything...

Now my system stands at
HW: DB
SW: DB


Now...nothing physically has been changed...only software wise....and I STILL hear the crackle....it is so inbetween on some songs and so constant on other I feel like I'm going crazy...

Any suggests or incite would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi Jyrine! I wish I could help, but I can say I've had similar issues when I try to stream Pandora through my phone/bluetooth.... disconnects all the time.
I will keep an eye on this thread to see if you get any answers...

BTW, where in WA are you?? Don't forget to check out the PNW thread, we almost always have plans for some sort of get together going on in there.

Usual questions.

Have you used several different cords to be sure it's not that?

Are you sure it's not movement of the cord in the usb port?

New phone?

I am very interested in this as well. I have noticed that sometimes my stereo does the same. I assumed that it was the cord, perhaps because it was too long and stuffing everything back into that tiny compartment might have caused a short. I haven't gone any further than that though. So I look forward to hear if there might be a different reason for this situation.

Several different cords tested...nothing changes....different ipod even.

It could be the movement in the actual port...but when I wiggle it it doesn't get better or worse.

iPod not iPhone..so I've replaced it one already thinking it could be that.

Damn.

Well you've done your due diligence.

Before I used BlueTooth I had a similar problem with an older model iPhone.

I've noticed a distinct crackle sound when listening to Sirius on my 2012. I think mine is stemming from a reception issue though not wiring.

I had that problem with my USB port and iPod. The dealer found a TSB and fixed it. It wouldn't happen when I first started the iPod, but eventually if I played it long enough it would. No crackle with the radio in any band or CDs, just iPod. I'll look tomorrow to see what the service receipt says. Did you check the forum for Camaro issues near the bottom of the sections? Can't remember if this subject has been discussed.

Hey Jyrine, I know exactly what your describing as i get the exact same 'crackling' from the ipod i use in the USB jack. It usually occurs after a few long album plays but has happened on short play runs (2-3 songs). I have found the only way to make it clear up is to power off the radio, then shut the ipod completely off the cable, then re-attach it to the white ipod USB cable. I'm using a 4thG 32GB ipod. I have not bothered going to the dealer as the reset seems to help. I'm guessing there is static building in the connection because the audio deteriorates pretty quickly when it does happen. It happens with all the music, i have a mix of itunes downloads and burns from cd.

Same here. It happens after a while. I just disconnect, blow on the cord (like the old NES) then connect it back. Solves the problem.

Mine does it if I haven't plugged my phone in for a while... it only does it when it's "indexing" or whatever you call it, then it works fine afterwards. 2012.

Maybe try a software update? You're one version behind.

They did two software updates and said that it should be up to snuff now.
What version are you running?

DB/DD is the latest version, but last I checked, they need to physically replace the PDIM module to make that change. Apparently there is not a software upgrade path from DB/DB to DB/DD. And the crackling and static still exists on DB/DD (at least for me). If I just unplug and plug back in the ipod at the usb port, it will go back to normal for a while and then start the static again. So far the only definite fix that I've heard of for this issue is going with an aftermarket head unit with iPod support, or deal with it. If you're having constant static/crackle, then that's a different issue than what I'm experiencing.

Mine is constant...It will do it through a whole set of songs, no matter the tempo....

And I've tried the unplug method.. nothing.

I was running an AUX cable today to see if its the iPod, and it isn't...not a bit of crackle that way...only when through the usb.

Ok, this is the wording on the repair bill when they fixed my USB/iPod issue. No problems since this was fixed in August.

customer states when iPod is plugged in after about 45 minutes start to hear static - crackling - part ordered. Scan multi media module interface for bulletin #PI005B. The module needs to be replaced for crackling noise. Replaced the multi media interface module and check software. OK

They ordered part #20927509 Module 9.680

Thank you! I know no EXACTLY what to tell them to order...This will certainly help speed things along.

I'll be sure to report back sometime next week to say if this does indeed fix the problem.

This. My cord was pinched and my phone or ipod would sound staticy when connected through my car stereo until I bought a new cord.

Thanks. I primarily listen to memory sticks plugged into the USB connection.

Never noticed the static on radio or CDs. It's only intermittent, so I knew I couldn't repeat it for the dealer.

The TSB number is a big help.
