I have the same problem, except I have a cassette player and not a CD player. I believe the answer is the antenna has come loose from the radio but I do not know how to check it.

The radio antenna is a fine wire imbedded in the windshield. If your radio doesn't pull in any stations, but you get static then probably the cable came out of the back of the radio. If you recently got a new windshied it may have not had the antenna. You should be an antenna at an auto parts store and install it on the front fender.

My Subaru Forrester radio was fine then made a static noise. No sound played on the left rear and left front speakers. Right front and right rear play at a whisper. Start car hear static. Any ideas?

Do you only have a radio, or do you have a tape or CD player. If you have one of them, do they work OK? IF so, then you have an antenna problem. Try loosening and cleaning the antenna socket ( if it is a regular stalk antenna). IF it is an "in-glass" antenna, you can try to tighten the connection at the radio (hard to get at) and also check to see if there is a break in the wire in the glass or when it leaves the glass to go to the radio.

Since the radio reception is all that's been affected, I'd say the antenna connection is interupted somewhere along it's length. Possibly it has just come disconnected from the deck. May be that there is a break in the wire leading from the antenna to the deck.

Will window tint cause the radio to static on a 2002 Honda civic lx?

No it will not. Your radio antenna is the top portion of the rear window. unless you cut it somehow.. It is also possible that the antenna booster located on the left side of the back window behind the pillar molding was bumped when tinted and that could cause the static. I had this problem once with a Civic Coupe. pull the cover on the pillar and unplug the antenna wire and the plug it back in. If you have not had the problem fixed try that.
