Default HID causes noise with newly installed stereo - help.

I installed an HID setup on my 95 hatch the other day, and today I installed a stereo setup (composites with amp and sub) Its working fine and is properly setup, however when I turn on the HID's i get a constant fairly loud high pitch noise.

A couple of quick things to note. I grounded the HID setup at the battery location ground spot. (seen in photo 2) Also, I'm using the battery terminal that came with the amp kit. The HID and Stereo are connected to it about 1cm from each other and the wires do touch.

my other radio? because the radio is in the dash, and the amp is in the hatch. I don't want to run 4 gauge wire up there just for a ground.

The radio is grounded to the stock location.

I just sourced the problem. I cannot bolt the Ballasts to the chassis because the noise they make is picked up and magnified in the system, probably via the grounds.

Imma have to zip tie them to something, which is kinda ghetto, but whatever, its not like I have a tucked bay to worry about.

Why not bolt them where you have them but with like a layer of some sort of insulator in between.
Like that high density craft foam. Or double sided tape or plywood or your mini-wheats box folded over.

reground the amp


your current location is not good.
1. scrape paint away from future ground location. it should be a solid piece of the chassis; not some part that has been welded onto the chassis (the area where the back seats fold down for example).
2. use a small self-tapping screw to get a start on a hole for the ground bolt.
3. remove the self-tapper and replace with a 10mm coarse threaded bolt and a star washer.
4. screw down new bolt (it should not be movable if you tug on it)
5. enjoy music

Feedback from the Ballasts. Insulate the balasts from the chassis. Use rubber insulators between the screws and the balasts. Also do not tie in to the battery with your HID grounds. Tie them into the engine ground. That should help you with your interference problem.
