Radio going full volume static

while driving the Jeep a full volume white noise will start coming from the speakers. Can't turn the volume down and shutting the jeep off does not make it stop, even opening door does not make it stop. sometimes it lasts 5 seconds sometimes 5 minutes. The noise is so loud you have to pull over and get out.
It did it once at 20K miles than started doing it more often in the last month. dealer said they found a shorted wire in a back door and fixed. Did it again last weekend and smelled burning electrical. took to dealer and they cant find the problem after having for 3 days with mechanic driving it home.
Now it did it 5 times today. worst was on the freeway with 75 year old grandmother and her sister in the back seat. had to pull onto shoulder so everyone could get out, lasted 5 minutes.
Already was talking with a Lawyer about Lemon Law buy back.
this is on top of the 9 times its been to the dealer for radio, suspension and other electrical issues. the jeep now has 42K miles and we are tired of it.

Anyone else have the same issues with the radio?
Here is a video of it doing the noise:

Just realized the song that was playing was Sleeping thru the Static by Jack Johnson.

Re: Radio going full volume static

No one has had this problem?
I have contacted a lemon Lawyer because the jeep is undrivable due to the noise. Jeep dealer can't figure it out, they wont even take it until FCA sends them direction on how to fix it.
