Trevor,

As a first step I'd replace the antenna with a dummy load and see if the problem persists. That might give you a clue as to how the noise is reaching the radio.

is it a Focus Diesel? If so the noise source is likely to be from the injectors. It is very common with the current common rail diesel engines and as far as im aware it is not easily cured.

Trevor, have a look on K0BG's website, which has lots of information about mobile installations.

It's certainly worth reading.

Iain.
