Issue with static nose

I am looking to find out if anyone else has had a similar issue to this.

I have had my 1.4T SRI for 2 weeks now with no issue. I started the car today and the radio was very faint with a loud static noise. The noise goes away when the radio is off but the static noise returned when i was using the indicator (while the radio was off and i had turned the volume completely down before switching it off) and goes off when the indicator stops.

It seems to have resolved itself but i restarted it about 5 times and it was there, drove home with the issue. Went back to the car after about 30 mins and it was fine.

Anyone else have this issue?

It's a known concern and a software update is available for your radio unit.

Did one today at work on an Astra K.

Book in at a dealer and refer them to 'DACT4184- Field fix software R4.0 IntelliLink BYOM2 radios (ioA / ioB)' on Find Answers (GM's internal database of known concerns, bulletins, etc).

Even if they can't replicate fault on the day, push for that update as it will fix the issue.

I have too, posted about it after the New Year, weird isn't it. Also have had a 'growling' sound of the brakes functioning through the speakers and/or the volume muting when touching the footbrake. My dealer informed me pre-Christmas of an update available so will definitely get it booked in now that we have expert inside information to ensure the correct patch is applied.
Thanks for the info ArcanumFox.
