Customer Question
Hello, I just purchased a...
Hello, I just purchased a 2007 Mustang Convertible with the Shaker 1000 Stereo system. For some reason it's not recognizing the aux input. When I press the Aux button it just goes from Sat1 to Sat2 to Sat3 but there is no line input option. I tried to run a self test on the system but when I tried I got the message "self failed". I could get to the speaker test, but not the diagnostics. Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, do you have the device plugged in when trying to use aux?

I have volume on my phone when playing music, when I plug it into the phone and into the aux input nothing happens. I keep pressing Aux but I never get the Line input option.
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Once the vehicle failed the self test I would suspect the issue is the audio control module. Usually it can be reprogrammed to correct conditions like this. It is also possible the line in connector is unplugged as well. I would make sure it's fully plugged in. If it is I would have the dealer update the audio control module and this should correct your concern.

Any idea of the cost to have it reprogrammed? Also, when you say "line in connector", do you mean on the connector itself? Both at the connector and the stereo?
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

The connector I am referring to is the end that plugs into the auxiliary cord. I have seen a lot of people disconnect this and forget to reconnect when putting things back together. Reprogramming will vary based off your location. My dealer charges 60 for module programming. If you live near a lot of Ford dealers I would call and ask what they charge for module reprogramming.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
