Hi my fellow TBer's, newbie here. I googled my issue and it lead me to this site, so here I am. Bought my new Trailblazer 2 months ago, really enjoying it. Strange thing happened last month and today...when I shut off the Auto engine stop, a loud crackle sound came through the radio. Scared the heck out of me both times! The 1st time it happened I wasn't sure if it was my XM, and just a coincidence that I shut off the engine stop at the same time..but today it did the same. I called the dealer where car was purchased, they said they never heard of this happening. Said if I want to stop by and they would take a look at it. I saw a few posts on here about the popping noise, but it had to do with braking. Has anyone else had this happen with the Auto shut off? Thanks in advance.

Yea your pop is happening in a diff way then we are seeing here. I wonder if it has to be some electrical impulse, feedback causing it. I don't think the dealer will find this issue till it becomes almost a regular thing on most start ups and drives. Ours has done it like 3 times and not from the auto start button which I turn off everytime I drive the car yet my wife leaves it on.

and we do not have XM or any other program. Just radio and bluetooth ways of playing music.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the quick response and information. My other question to the dealership was my phone was charging both times when it did this, could that have caused it? When I'm out and about tommorow I'm going to try to recreate it and see what happens. What caused yours to make the noise?

I had it happen 3 different times in the first month I have had it usually when it automatically shuts off at a light and goes to start back up when hit the gas a loud pop comes thru speakers. Loud enough to scare you! Nothing like your a good loud pop when it's quiet to scare you like that.
