You may have loose connection or loose/broken CD grounding wire.

Remove the unit and see if there is anything loose in it.

Thanks for the replies. Yep. It's coming from the CD slot. It does that with or without a cd in, but while its doing that it won't eject the cd.

Did it for a about 10 mins while driving home from work and then spat out a disc. Then came to it tonight with no disc in and it did it for 5 mins then stopped.

Radio plays like normal.

Will take the unit out at the weekend and see if anything loose.
