Lincoln MKS: The radio in my 2011 MKS Lincoln intermittently

Customer Question

The radio in my 2011 MKS Lincoln intermittently goes on and off. Occassionally switching AM/FM bands or pushing another button on the media center will turn the radio on. It seems like a connection problem with the speakers. The read out and clock are fine.
Any suggestions?

Ok Thank you.

There are a few modules in the audio system just to send sound to the speakers.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.
The modules can be checked for any diagnostic codes that may have been set. A good scan tool is needed to do that.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.
But what you could try is to disconnect the battery negative cable for a few minutes. This resets all the vehicles modules. Surprisingly with all the modules in the cars these days, "rebooting" them like a computer does fix a lot of issues. Do you think that is at least something you can try?

Sure. Appreciate your help and hope the easy "re-boot" works!Susan
