    I am having the exact same problem, we were able to temporarily solve this by playing around with the rear seat controls but it has gone out again, all stations are complete static as if the antenna has been damaged or disconnected, please help.

This is caused by either a defective antenna or the ground to the antenna.

have you tried to jump it-you could put a charger on it over night-the sound is probably the radio has lost its stations and is playing the static from being off station-sound like you need to have battery and charging system checked out-cheers Denny

2006 ford expedition radio doesn't work

Some radios have a fuse inside them also.
I've found car radio's in general to be not so very good.
I'd not pitch it out until you can find someone reliable to test it.
Watch out though, some folks have a "vested interest".
That means they want to sell you a new one.
Be blessed.

Car radio doesn't work

It sounds like the antenna wire may have come loose from the radio or the antenna - would be worth checking. Just remember, if you can't get in behind the radio, and you have to pull it, don't disconnect the wiring harness, or you'll need an unlock code to make the radio work again.

Do you happen to have more than one Ford Key on your key ring. The theft system on this is a transponder system and it could get the wrong signal from a key to a different vehicle.

I have an '01 Expedition XLT. I seem to remember a safety recall on the back latch that involved replacing the handle. Maybe yours never had the recall work done.
