Radio won't turn off in 2004 freestar

The radio will stay on in the vehicle even when pressing the off button repeatedly - if you press the eject button on the cd player it changes the station - can't use the scan or seek buttons and the station will change randomly from a fm station to an am one while driving.  I tried to start it this morning and at first everything on the instrument panel just fluttered. I tried it again and it started but the clock went back to 12:00, which can't be reset because the menu button on the radio doesn't work either.  Checked a bunch of fuses and they seemed fine.  Is this a battery problem or something else?

SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

SOURCE: replaced battery - need to reset clock / radio won't play

Yes.. your problem is a micomp (micro computer) issue. There is a communication problem between the micomp and the touchscreen. Replace the micomp.

SOURCE: car radio works on am but not fm

Your antennae is somehow disconnected from your radio. It may simply be that it has come loose from the back of the head unit. Or that your antennae mast is missing, or that the cable from the head unit to the mast is severed.

I hope this helps.

Cd jammed won,t eject


Hi.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while turning on the stereo at the same time. If that does not work disconnect battery terminal for one minute to reset the electrics and try again pressing eject repeatedly on startup. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed before disconnecting the battery.

If that does not work, then the unit must be disassembled. The car stereo must be removed from the dash. The unit must be disassembled removing screws at back and bottom and undoing metal casing clips. That will reveal the CD drive allowing to remove the disk.

Regards.

Need code for Audi TT radio because it is in 2 safe mode also turn signals light up but have to work the arm manualy to get them to work


New vehicles are supplied with a radio operating manual. The radio code is printed on a removable card in the manual. If you don't have this the code is only available from Audi dealers. Once you have the code you can enter it by pressing and holding the TP and RDS buttons together until the display shows 1000. Then press the channel 1 button repeatedly until the first digit of the code is displayed in position 1. Use channel button 2 in the same manner to enter the2 nd digit of the code. 3rd button for 3rd digit, 4th for 4th digit. once you have the full code entered, press and hold TP and RDS buttons together again until display reads safe. Release buttons and radio should come on.

2004 freestar can't turn the radio up or down it


I would question your children " if you have any" if they have put anything in the cd slot, I work at a dealership and we find a lot of problems with the van radios are very nice children like to play and put small change into the cd slot, which shorts out the internal components of the radio, if you remove the radio, dash piece just pops off then 4 screws hold radio in, and shake it you should not hear anything rattling around in it.

04' Ford FreeStar - The Radio Stay On When Van Is Off


Nothing wrong with it. When you remove the key, it stays on for about 20 minutes. It gives you time to finish listening to your radio and roll up the window. Once the driver door is open, everything shuts off or if 20 minutes has passed.

2004 Jeep Liberty CD Problem


Sometimes if you shut off the vehicle, then continually press the eject button, while you start it, and continue to press the button, until the radio is on for a minute, it'll work. Other than that, Sorry. Best wishes to you.
