With or without the key in it. Makes one wonder if there isn't something preprogrammed in the computer system to cause it to fail! I asked them if Ford has had an issue with Ford Escape radios? Dec 11, 2009 The problem seems to be that the video out from the kenwood head unit is either faulty or the leads from the head unit to the monitors are faulty. No repair done, Ford would not cover under extended warranty. If they fail that easily, who is to say that it is not going to do that same thing again? Air flow door seems to be stuck. I straightened a standard paper clip and with needle nose pliers I made a very small hook.

I have a bad feeling about this after digging up a bit of research over this weekend and I kind of get the feeling that this car will be going back to the dealer again in the near future for the same exact issue again, after they replace the original radio. Probably didn't take more than ten minutes. This is actually where my problem stared as well. . Even though the issue is the same issue had prior to replacing with a brand new radio. I am about to be hero… Step 3 — Install New Unit This part was supposed to be easy. Vehicle in for 3rd time with slow battery drain.
Ford should be as concerned about liability from wrecks caused by headrest pian distractions as they are about the rear impact safety.

I've seen in here that people reference an ignition wire but not sure where that is or how to find it? This is clearly an issue with the radio. I will order one headphone, which I saw listed for just 17 dollars on Ebay to test the system. They are able to reduce noise levels to about fifteen to twenty decibels.
It comes apart from the bottom cover, you must take out the circuit board to access the back of the laser head. Suitable for children and adults alike! I aslo ran my own ground wire as well. The ultimate auto entertainment solution that takes all the hassle, crying and fighting out of family trips! I'v noticed sometimes it's happens when the radio is powered off and even when my car is parked and no keys in ignition. It is unable to move a disc in or out. Ford won't issue a recall because it's not a safety issue, so maybe you can try this. Four through six weeks of owning the stupid problematic vehicle from purchasing through a dealer shit and the radio dies.
If it's not the fault of the radio then the problem is further up that 12v live wire and what every else it is connected to before the radio head unit. How to get the disc out? This was fixed under the extended warranty. They tell me 500 bucks to install new radio. Please call ford for the problem not your dealer but ford! Sometimes the radio was functional and sometimes not. Traction control would engage randomly.
Taking it all apart to be able to expose the laser head in order to blow it and thoroughly clean it with alcohol did the trick. However, I noticed that the plug was a little different. Thanks for making me aware of which of the 20 pins corresponds to my 12 pin power supply. This unit is certainly defective. Also the Bluetooth will still sink to my cellphone, however won't play.
