Re: Radio volumn goes down when braking
What it is called is (speed sensitive volume):
The radio volume automatically adjusts according to vehicle speed to compensate for road and wind noise. PRESS THE TUNE SELECTOR UP/DOWN OR SEEK LEFT/RIGHT TO TURN OFF OR SELECT RATES 1 THOUGH 7. 7 COMPENSATES THE MOST VOLUME AT HIGH SPEEDS.
I hope that this works for you. Please let me know if you need any more help with you 2006 focus

there must be a contact with the hot from the brake light actuator/switch and the radios power supply? or its shorting out the main bus resetting radio look for damaged contacting wires must b somewhere where brake wire & radio wires are in common.
Brake repair is pretty simple as long as you know what you are doing. That's the reason why mechanics who do know have a brake adjusters license as extra security for the consumer. If someone repaired your brake system and unlicensed would be unhelpful when you get into an accident and file a claim from insurance. Enough of that, I think you get the picture.
Ensure that the piston in the caliper was pressed in all the way, it's just better whe a piston is bottomed out.
Clean the caliper slide rails (part of pad resting on the caliper) with emery cloth, free from rust and debris.
Apply a thin film of white lithium grease on the rails. This will help the pads to slide more easily and keep it from seizing. Do not over do it and avoid contaminating any area of contact when brakes are applied.
With a die grinder and a SOS pad scuffing wheel (you can use any tool similar as long as you achieve our goal), scuff the disk brake rotor in one circular direction. If it was turned professionally you'll see directional scuff markings around the rotor and no need to do this step.
The brake pads should be ground off a max of 3 deg on it's top and bottom edges. This will prevent brake chatter in it's initial operation.
With the brake pad material facing down, spray the backing plate of the pad with brake quiet (blue). This serves as a vibration damper keeping the squeeling noise down when brake action is applied.
Put the parts together, make sure there's film of white grease to parts that need to slide on each other e.g. caliper guide pins, pad rest, caliper rails.
Bleed the brake system starting from the furthest wheel from the brake master cylinder, moving up to the nearest as the last one. This why it's good idea to bottom out the pistons.
To set the pads and break-in the contact surfaces of the system, speed up and apply the brakes, stomping on the pedal to a full stop. Brake like it's an emergency stop, make sure when you stomp it, a full revolution of the rotor was accumulated to evenly set the pads in.
This should be worth something, please rate this for my effort. Thank you.
