fog lights messing with reception

when i have my fog lights on with my headlights im getting unbearable static and cant even hear the radio. when i turn them off everything is fine. anyone have any idea why this is happening? i would just not use them and just use headlights but they are HIDs so obviously i want to get use of them after paying for them.

Sounds like you have a ground somewhere in the wiring for your fog lights. I would track the wiring starting from the lights and going back.

Believe it or not some hid kits are notorious for messing with radio signal. Where are your ballasts located?

It is the truth that when the HID is drilled and directly grounded ballast to car it can cause that. My 93 S10 did it and i fixed it with 3M tape.
