    I just got a '93 Mazda 626 and I'm having some issues with the car audio.

    I use a car adapter for my portable CD/MP3 player which I hook up into the tape player. The problem though is that there's a huge bizarre background noise when I use my CD player through the tape player. And so, you can barely hear the music because there's that damn ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ noise in the background.

    How in the hell can I fix that?

    Is this the thing where you stick a tape in the tape player and it plays the CD music? If so, I would take a shot in the dark and say it's the adapter itself. Try listening to the CD player with some headphones, if it still sounds like shit, then it's the CD player, if not, then it's the adapter. Though get another tape and test the tape player too.

    The CD player is fine with headphones, I'll have to try another adaptor tape if I can find one, I don't feel like buying another one. The one I have, I've used for months and it worked perfectly in my other car.
