THis is where I would start although I have not had this problem (yet....). Check all the plugs, terminals and earths for the units in the dash and boot (trunk for the other English speakers). The fact the radio makes a noise tends to point to not getting the RF part of the signal rather than an audio problem. A plug out or wire off may be your (simple) problem..
