Pickup Issue.. - Problem with wiring?

I have a problem with my pickup..

When I switch to the back pickup, *I get alot of interference and sensitivity is increased with my amp on louder levels. *Seems that when the back pickup is enabled the frame around the pickup, the bridge and even the whammy bar become the pickup. *You can tap the bridge and hear it through the amp.
Very annoying espeacially on louder levels. *My noisegate becomes more sensitve and I get alot of interference and all my sound I have programmed in my pedal sounds like sh!t. *I also noticed that I can rock the back pickup and you can hear the interfernec kick in everytime the pickup is rocked. *My front pick does not rock at all and no interfernece comes out of it when I switch it o the front pickup.

Is it my pickups that are fried or do I have a wiring issue.

Thanx to all who help me out.

Sounds to me that your bridge pickup have become microphonic.
The cure is to replace it.

What guitar? *What pickups do you have now (since you already have your settings set, you may want similar sounding pickups)?
