NOT my car - 06 honda civic

Synchros shot? Weird noises while shifting? Not sure what needs to be replaced?

NOT my car - 06 honda civic

Postby wannabe » Mon Oct 26, 2015 7:11 pm

My sisters 06 honda civic's radio gets fuzzy whenever you turn on the rear defroster.

why? any fixes? I assume the electrics are too close, but i don't actually know and she finds it annoying
Currently not driving anything - the escort died april 2014 and there's no funds to replace it

Does she have an antenna imbedded in the rear window?

Is her voltage going low - does it sound lousy at idle, with the headlights and HVAC blower motor on, but better when the engine is spinning a little faster?

Very likely what Rope said. My 03 Accord had a defroster mounted antenna.
