Default Furuno autopilot causing radio clicking sound

When i run my Furuno autopilot 500 and Icom radio, I get some sort of clicking sound. I have 2 radios and I get the clicking on both. When I click standby, no clicking. The auto-pilot also causes issues with my sounder (VX2 units). Any ideas on problem and suggestions for fixing this?

Are any of these units new, or is this just a new problem that has popped up? If it is new, you may just have the antennas ran too close together. Also, are radios and autopilot hooked to the same battery?
