It has a touch screen

More than likely the radio, Ford calls it he ACM (Audio Control Module) has failed. The popping noise coming through the speakers was the ACM internally shorting out. It is mounted behind the touch screen. It is a module that needs to be programed to the vehicle for it to work properly. It has the CD player slot in it. See the directions below.

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
