MyTouch static

On my 2013 SEL, I have the non-Sony non-nav radio.

Has anyone experienced static on every source no matter what you choose?

It's not loud but you notice it when the volume is turned down. Maybe one click above zero. It doesn't increase when you turn the volume up either.

It sounds like my old RF adapter that I used to have with my old Sirius box where you just play through a dead radio station.

I hear the sound on every source whether the radio, through USB, CD even.

I understand this behavior happening through Bluetooth but all the other connections are wired connections.

I don't get it.

sounds like a bad antenna or antenna connection.

I would understand that if it were the radio, or Sirius or something. This happens with EVERY source...cd, USB, whatever.

Then take it back to the dealer, there is something wrong.

Went to the dealer. ACTUALLY SAT IN 3 other SELs with the same MyFord Touch radios. Tested each source (Sirius, CD, USB, etc.). Same exact behavior. The Service guy that was helping me was stunned.
