Lincoln LS (LSE): Mat,I've got a 2005 Lincoln LSE [3.9

Customer Question
Hi Mat, I've got a 2005...
Hi Mat,
I've got a 2005 Lincoln LSE [3.9 liter V8]. For the last 3 days there is a loud whine coming thru the rear speakers when the air is on (turns into a 'gurgling' noise when fan is turned off; turning car off and back on solved it day1, not anymore), with and without A/C, and with and without radio on. whine volume corresponds to fan speed [faster=louder]. The 2nd noise sounds deceptively like liquid/air gurgling, but cuts off instantly when ignition is cut off, as in when i open the door. Thanks

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
From what you have described here this sounds like a ground issue with a poor ground for the radio itself or any sound amplifier that may be installed.I would have the grounds checked to see if a ground issue is found and repaired if a fault is found.
Thanks Pete

Thanks, ***** ***** have that checked. It started right after service for sway bars, 4 brakes and rear coils ($2300), which doesn't sound related at all, but I'll go back to them for a look. I took a look in the trunk around the battery and all connections are clean and secure, so it must be somewhere less obvious. I'm thinking it's the amplifier [everything is stock for the LSE, with the THX sound package]. To 'clean up' my original description, there's a loud hum heard in back speakers whenever ignition is on; also, interference gets worse when using fan, power windows and wipers. Turning down the rear speakers does not help at all.

This does sound like a ground issue.If you can I would have the work re checked for any loose or damaged or missing grounds.
Thanks Pete

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
