Re: Pop threw speakers when open door

You have an amplifier grounding problem. Prolly loose somewhere. Get the amplifier schematic, find the ground(s) and follow them back to where they are physically connected to the chassis. Is the bolt tight on the connector? Since it passed QC at the factory and has recently started occurring, the culprit might be an open circuit at a connector terminal in that ground circuit. Look at the ground wire going into the back of the connector(s) to see if it is loose or inside the connector to see if a blade is bent over. Tug on the suckers, it won't hurt the ones properly attached.
OR take it to the dealer and TELL them the problem and ask them to fix it.

The amplifier has stored power and discharges during power off. However, since the ground wire has a partially open circuit, the amplifier discharges through the speakers. I wanna say the connection is loose because a completely open ground circuit would cause more problems. Google and you'll find this is a common amplifier installation problem.

Re: Pop threw speakers when open door

Just throwing an idea out there... could this be to do with the disconnection of a Bluetooth device? Maybe do some testing without any connected devices to confirm it's not the case?

I agree it sounds like the amp dumping into the speakers though. Does it coincide with the system shutting down, or is it running during and after the spurious noise?

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Pop threw speakers when open door

Seems to coincide when I open any door including the hatch. The dash boots at the same time.

Holy hell, what a nightmare.
I would say too all you guys with these type problems, try to sit in the vehicle for 1-3 minutes after you shut off the power (engine, lights & radio) to see if the amp (or whatever) bleeds the power off slowly and you don't get a pop or reboot. Or shut off the engine and wait for the delay timer to expire and wait a few.
It won't fix the problem but will help isolate it.
