Re: Radio gone crazy
Basically the volumn knob has malfunctioned and you have to get a new radio. no way to fix it....not even worth fixing. If you dont want to replace your stock radio with an aftermarket one you can easily find another stock radio for cheap at a nearby junkyard.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
i believe that when you put the volume up to the max, you blow up the main fuse, because the new radio with volume up to the max consume more amps than the fuse is set to for the original radio.
now you have to look into the fuse boxes and replace the fuse, this will sort out the radio and the door lock problems as i hope.
The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.
It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.
Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.
So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.
If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.
PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.
PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.
I can give you most of your answer and it depends on the Radio. Ford has a speed-compensated Radio that will adjust the volume of the Radio to the speed of the car. This feature means you will not have to adjust a radio down at a stoplight or when going to a drive-thru.
Then when the car speeds up and engine and road noise increase, so does the volume on the Radio. So you will not have to adjust the volume of the Radio when you drive.
You need to fix the speedometer to get the radio to work correctly. You probably have a sensor connector or the sensor itself making the problem. Go to an Autoparts store and get a sensor and it will probably work fine.
Good news - they're adjustable. The radio is used to adjust the vehicle's chime level. To change the volume level of the chime, press and hold push-button 6 with the ignition on and the radio power off. The volume level will change from the normal level to loud, and LOUD will appear on the radio display. To change back to the default or normal setting, press and hold push-button 6 again. The volume level will change from the loud level to normal, and NORMAL will appear on the radio display.
Note: Each time the chime volume is changed, three chimes will sound to indicate the new volume selected.
Check the dealer and see if your radio automatically adjust to your speed. Some radios were built to raise the volume when driving at higher speeds and when you get in slow traffic or when you stop it would automatically adjust down the volume. You can also go to a Radio Shack and get a spray cleaner for electrical parts and pull the volume knob off of your radio and spray the volume control and turn it rapidly to remove any hidden dirt on that volume control.
radio problem. very common of fords with factory radios. best to get a used one. or try your local best buy and see if they can give a factory fit. they are pretty big with air included in the housing. best of luck
Yes they did sell trucks with only am radios. What is most amazing is that it is still in the truck. Most people changed them out. I guess the previous owner did not ever listen to it. The question I have is how did you know I would be able to answer this question?
