Thanks for the info. Do you mean that the radio is kaput and need to be
replaced? I will check the radio, fuses, and sockets.

I don't understand why I am getting interference from the engine now when
I never did when the radio worked. Does the amp offer some kind of
shielding? I discovered that banging on the steering wheel affects the
whinning buzz -- it might make it softer or louder. It's all very
interesting.
