Angry WHINING SOUND - Pioneer HU - Any Help ?

Hi friends,

This thing has started happening with my Esteem ( Pioneer HU) and the best part is apart from Alternator Whining // the A/c Fan Speed Noise ( goes like WHHOOOOOOOOO ) other than I can even hear my cars Horn coming from speakers even the Indicator ( tick tick) but sometimes all of a sudden it just VANISHES.
can anyone advise me where to get my system checked ? Since I am new to Pune , so need a reliable guy who can service the Pioneer HU in my presence ? full address & contact number will be highly appriciated
what to do ? upon replacing the headunit with a new HU , the sound doesnt come but when i put in my old HU back the sound returns..... any ideas what to do ?
cant afford to put in a new system as I plan to put in a DVD along with a screen......
Thanks - P4C

Buddy, it's to do with the install and the wiring. Search the forum and there are many threads for this issue and possible solutions.

I installed somekind of a 'rectangular tubelight choke' kind of thing for 600 bucks and the whining sound went away.

Default My very limited knowledge

Simple first steps:

Is your power cable and RCA/other cable running together from the same side? Separate them to opposite sides.

Check the earthing, should be done very properly.
