I have a 2005, and since I've had it whenever I turn on the rear defroster it creates some major distortion with the FM radio reception. I understand there is probably a ground issue somewhere, but where do i look? Anyone experienced this?

I do have some subs hooked up the the bose system through the bose sub wiring harness in the back. I asked here before and someone told me to check my ground for the subs. I re-did the ground by removing all the paint around the seat bolt that it is grounded to. I also completed disconnected the system from the car and tried the defroster and it still created interference with the radio. So I dont think my system has anything to do with the problem, but if there is something I am missing, let me know.

If I have to rip out my radio, then so be it, but any other tips, tricks, or experiences with this problem are appreciated.

I had a grand prix that did this, never did find the reason...But it's not like you keep your rear defrost on for long anyway
