Radio static when defroster on

In my 2016 Mustang GT, whenever I turn the defroster on, the radio is just static (AM or FM). Any solutions to this?

Odd, sounds like a bad ground somewhere. Your 2016 should still be under warranty. A trip to the dealer might be your best bet.

do you know if the antenna is built into the rear window? My wife used to have an old CLK that did and had that problem. I read they were on the same circuit, but had a capacitor to keep electrical impulses from the defroster from feeding back into the antenna. If the capacitor fails, you get a buzz.
