1. check your grounding. most likely bad grounding that causes this.
2. if you have an external amp. check the gain level and adjust it down until you cant hear any humming.

The one to the stereo.

Theres also a good idea to ground the engine better also, as the stock grounding is pretty bad.

This is caused by a ground loop



What is a ground loop?
