It might be picking up electrical noise from the mirror motor and the alternator, that usually means that an internal filter has went bad inside the radio head. You can try electronic filters on the charging system and all other electric motor power supplies but you might be better off just replacing the unit with an aftermarket, having the stock head repaired is just not worth the money. You might find a good used unit, but make sure you get one with a warranty.
