Default One more ground loop isolator question from a newbie...

I just got my pnp2 today and gone ahead and installed it... Now my only problem is that I want to hook up directly to the back up my deck but once I turn my car on, I get alot of static...

If the ignition is off but I have power to the pnp2, then it comes in perfectly clear, once I turn the car on... goodbye clarity... Luckily for the mean time, if I use the FM modulator then I get it pretty clear even when the car is running. (Luckily up here in Montana I don't have to worry about too many radio stations bleeding over... )

Would a ground loop isolator on my rca connection be the route to go? I've seen quite a few posts out there about the ground loop isolator, but most of them talk about having static on the FM modulator side or just on the RCA side...

Any help or insight would be appreciated for the newbie here!

Jeff

Are you running audio cables any where near a power cable of any sorts?
Because, thats what i thought was the prolbem with mine, as i was getting engin noise, which changed depending on what RPM i was at.

Today, I completely re-wired all my power and audio cables to the sirius tunner, sub, and amp in the trunk. And guess what, its still doing it. Sorry i cant be of any help...

I'm going to give the Ground Loop Isolator a shot, they have one at radio shack for 16 bucks.

I just wanted to post a little follow up...

I decided that I'd give the $16 ground loop isolator a try from radio shack. I figured if it didn't work, then I'd just return it. But to my surprise it worked first time out! Not a lick of feedback! I'm on my way to enjoying satellite radio in the car! No more FM modulator!
