Question 2002 Edge speakers popping W/ ign. off

Looking into my sons edge problem when the key is out of the ignition he is getting a popping sound from the speakers of the audio system. To me it seams that I get the same sound when the switch is moved into and out of the acc. position. I am thinking that the problem might be in the switch, maybe that the contacts in the switch are loose or shorting out while in the off position as the popping sound dosent happen when the truck is on. Thought I`d check here before I tried to change the switch. This is a 6 disc oem system

Thanks

Take one of your speakers out if you can, and get a small amount of speaker wire. Touch the posotive speaker wire to the posotive of a AA Battery, and the negative to the negative of the AA. If that pop sounds just like what it is doing right after you turn the truck off, then you know for sure it is a short somewhere that is loose. Wiggle the wires individually behind the speakers, and wiggle the door jam wire feed throughs by the hinge, if anything changes when you touch one of these areas, you have narrowed it down. SHORTS SUCK!

Thats the sound I`m getting alright, but its comming from all speakers at the same time and only when ignition is off, I pulled the fuse for the radio and it stops, thats what makes me think its in the switch assembly.I will pull a speaker and try that and see if all speakers pop.

Thanks for the help
