Default Static Problems

Hello everyone, I am having static problems with my radio. I have a Xact Plug & Play unit, and I keep getting this high pitched static, it is really annoying. I think it has something to do with the power cord that goes into the cigarette lighter. Whenever I move the cord with my hand I can hear the static get louder or quieter, but there is always static no matter what. The static get really loud whenever I pass power lines. Is it just my cable that needs to be replaced? Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks!

Default try FM OUT antenna

see post above. If your unit has a place for an FM OUT antenna, that will take care of static, assuming you are tuned to an appropriate FM station.
