For the all knowing bilgerats:

I have a cd player in my trunk. Sony. It actually transmits a signal to a frequency not used by any radio station in my area. It has been developing static when engine is running. No static when parked and just accessory on.

Is this a sign my engine needs new wires? A loose connection? Thoughts?

Dont know. Engines make electrical noise. Your radio is picking up this noise...probably thru its power supply.
