Well, there it is. Very noticeable hum now on CD function. I am going to go to the car stereo place that installed and hopefully there is a solution i.e. larger grounding capacitor,

Just a FYI.

Huh?

Did you have the Eclipse in there PRIOR to changing the plugs? If so, maybe they tuned (for lack of better words) the Eclipse to that interference level i.e. a larger capacitor.

???

I have to check if I replaced the plugs before or after the Eclipse install. I am a stickler for sound...I know there is absolutely no hum regardless if the deck is on or off. I will ask the shop that put it in if they had to do something special...

IMPORTANT ECLIPSE DECK FYI: On the Eclipse head unit: When I had my Eclipse installed they told me the Security feature was turned off/disengaged until I programmed it otherwise. Well...my battery went dead and guess what? The Eclipse unit is asking for it's Security code! Without one, the deck, as I understand it, needs to be sent back to Eclipse...which is actually a good thing regarding theft protection etc. The shop that installed it is going to swap the deck out for me.

Just thought I would let you know now...so you can get your Flash Card or CD set-up with a security code before you disconnect power or your battery dies.

Most noise problems with stereos are from a bad ground. I'm not familiar with the LC stereo, but if the Eclipse puts out more power than the factory head unit, then you may need a better ground.
