Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Radio static in old Suburban
I have a 1995 suburban with 58,000 miles. It was my dads and he didn't drive that much and I ended up with it. It's a great tow vehicle but there is one issue. The radio has excessive static. The static rises and falls with engine acceleration leading me to believe it's in the ignition system. The odd thing is, when the static gets real bad I can't turn on the headlights and the static instantly diminishes. If I turn off the headlights immediately after the static goes away it stays diminished for a while. Eventually the static builds back up and once again turning the headlights on will diminish it. This doesn't always work, but turning the headlights on, for whatever reason does diminish the static. The plug wires were replaced about five years ago because of age not because of mileage, but I don't know the quality of the wires since my dad have them replaced. I'm wondering if it may be something else like a voltage regulator, or coil. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
