I think it is normal. Recently during the test drive I noticed this "static" after testing AUX. It was OK to me, because I think if you select the AUX it expects some input,
which could be a "static". I bought my LE 4x4
I would not touch my audio system just for this problem.
Another note for the HOST-Steve.(BTW, How is your Quest:) )
I guess having a general discussion was much better way instead of specific discussions. Sometimes you want to just click a link and read all instead of per topic. And other times if you want to discuss something, you may not exactly know which group it should belong to. Creating way too many groups also is not good idea. Hence I think it was good to have one "general" group per car. As I am noticing also, many of discussions are fading down due to this restriction.

The Quest is, ahem, a bit overdue for regular maintenance at 113,000 miles. I wish my balky hot tub, washer, water heater, roof shingles and scanner would all work so well.
Play with the Tracking feature; it'll let you keep up with Armada posts and discussions that interest you pretty painlessly.

The sound I'm hearing isn't normal by any stretch. The louder I turn it up, the louder the ticking, sounds like a clock and can be heard over the music of my IPod sometimes. The volume knob also creates static when turned, and this too was the case on the two other Armadas we checked out in the lot. The dealer is going to be looking into this further.

Please keep updating about what the dealer would do.
I heard some static today while my Radar Dedector caught
a "laser alert" and I was playing MP3 CD in dash, not AUX.
In any case, if you select the AUX with no signal going as input, then I think having some static is OK, I mean if you don't have static problem when you have real AUX signal input, then it is better not to mess with your system. Just be happy and enjoy your Bose 10 speakers with Sub.

Dear HOST, Thanks for opening a new discussion group.
I hope that would become a "general" place to discuss Armada and in that case there no difference between the one which is now "read only". It is my impression that creating specific groups for every specific item is not usefull. Usually when I need something specific then I do "search", otherwise I just enjoy reading them all. Anyway, I may be wrong, but this is my own impression after using this great forums for almost 10 years I guess

I thought I will continue on this topic by moving to Quest/Viliger group, but alas it is now "read only". I have a 97 Quest (and I think you had one before the last) with 100+K on the clock and runs like a dream. I have done regular engine/transmission services and I always used mobile-1 for both. Now since it is approaching 105K, I need to think about timing belt service, hence my question: did you do your timing belt before hitting 113K? I have been told it may run much longer if not pushed hard, i.e. towing, to much load, or even very hard acceleration. What do you think?

Still on the original timing belt on my '99 (unlike most Nissan engines, mine's not an interference one, so there's a bit less risk of damaging stuff if it breaks) and no real plans to change it, but I do want to replace the original plugs this winter.
Guess it boils down to whether you mind being stranded somewhere if the belt breaks or something else goes flooey. I figure a nice Armada owner will come along and give me a push to the shoulder when I do break down.

None on my 04. I have a carputer that I play DVDs and MP3s from to the Aux input.

This is pretty late, by the dates, but I'll put in my two cents worth... Same issues with the static on aux. In my case when I plug in my mp3 player I had to adjust the volume on the player to close to max and reduce the volume of the actual stereo to get decent sound without static- almost feedback type- interference. I called the company of the player (Creative) and Nissan, nobody had an answer as to why I had to jack the volume up so high on the player. I suspect it almost should have an inline amp, if there were such an animal. Sigh - now the 07's have the musicbox feature.. I'm SOOOO jealous!
