what year is your Passat? And does the noise only sound when the radio is on? Does turning the lights or the turn signals on change the sound?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2001, only when I turn on the radio.
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

have you tried more than one radio? Was it the same part number? is it a beeping sound, or a squeal or whining tone?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Actually just tried this radio,everything seems to work and it's the same part #. The sound it's like tut tut tut tut but loud. Before the radio burned and smoked the speakers made a thunder sound.

is it like a helicopter sound? Try turning the turn signals on and see if it changes at all. If so, then I have replaced the roof mounted antenna and the cable that runs the length of the car, but run them down the left side under the carpet instead of the right side where they are now

Try just unplugging the antenna, and see if it still does it.
