Radio Problem

I have an aftermarket song cd player in my focus and recently added satelitte radio to it. I tapped into my cigarette lighter and added another lighter behind the dash for power for it and mounted my antenna on the left part of my roof at the front. I recently have been having issues of my satellite radio, radio and my regular car radio, radio having problems of going low on sound. What I mean is that ill be driving along and go over a bump or start off and the radio will cut go low on sound and my radio will show a sound icon with a slash through it and say att on or att off. It sometimes just happens randomly but also when I start or accelerate or go over a bump. My satellite radio is hooked to my car through and aux cable. I was wondering why it keeps cutting out? I know that I need to replace that little alternator cable as i just replaced my alternator, could that have anything to do with it? Its not that the radio turns off it just goes quiet. Even when my satellite radio is off my regular one does it too. I dont understand it. Any help would be great! Thanks

Sounds like your Sony has a telephone/mute wire input and it's touching ground whenever you hit a bump or accelerate. This wire is designed to mute the stereo during an incoming cell phone call. Pull out you radio and I'll bet that's it.
