    Electrical popping noise thru audio speakers

    Hello All, So.... I have a 2018 Ranger 1000 with the Polaris eyebrow stereo and a set of the Polaris rear (overhead) speakers. I also have the Polaris 72” plow with the lift and tilt actuators on the plow. The controls for the lift/tilt are on the shifter handle. When I am plowing and also listening to music I get a loud popping noise thru the speakers when I am using the lift and tilt buttons on the shifter handle. I have talked with the dealer that installed it all and they are telling me it’s a known problem and there is no fix.... I’m not buying that.... does anyone have some insight, experience, or thoughts on this problem ????

    Trying Grounding your Radio directly to the battery. When using high load / amperage style devices such as winches, hydraulics, etc. It sometimes is necessary to ground the radio straight to the battery to help cut down on the interference.

    Ive read on here a few instances of the lights dimming and even almost stalling the motor with the plows wired to the pulse bar. With the plow wired directly to the battery the issues went away. Like jobo said, big amp draw.
