Question about 2001 Ford Focus

Open Question

Radio technoanswers So the radio (maxtek 55401) works fine when first connected, so in it goes. A quick test of ignition off and on again and it still works. However if the car is left off for any length of time, the radio doesn't come back on. When I start the car, the backlight comes on, but it won't actually turn on. Then when I turn the car off, it beeps for 5 seconds and then fades for 2 seconds then is cut off. I assumed it was the ground connector(black&yellow AND black&green), for which the radio instructions and other the internet sources seemed to disagree, but i've tried it both ways and it gives the same result. could it be a security feature? or could it be something to do with the power antenna lead (unused) all help MUCH appreciated thanks mike

SOURCE: Radio Not Working

There are 3 fuses in the interior fuse panel that feeds radio.
no. 11(10amp) is ignition switch power to the radio it comes into radio on the TN/LB wire.
no. 27 (10amp) is hot at all times and comes in on OG/LG wire.
no. 12 (5amp) is hot in run or accessory and comes in on YE/BK wire.
Check these with 12V test light at fuse and at radio connector.

The headlight wiring and radio wiring is getting in contact and causing the short.Both the grounds needs to be checked.Because when headlight is off,the radio work's fine.As soon as the headlights are turned on,the radio goes in scan mode.Its clear indication of radio and headlight wiring issue.The wiring's are getting in contact with ant metal surface or both the radio and headlight wire are coming in contact,where they should not.I suggest you to check the headlight and radio wiring diagrams for your lincoln town car.Here is the direct link.Click the link below :---Check out all the 3 links one by one.Radio wiring diagram for 1997 LincolnTown Car?http://technoanswers.blogspot.in/2012/02/radio-wiring-diagram-for-1997-lincoln.html

Radio turns off in starting position


this look like a low battery and every time you try to crank your car it takes more power and kill the main power to the radio
solution # 2 the radio as 2 power wires one is always hot ( with current) and the other is connected to the ignition switch if you have replaced the radio those 2 wires maybe are connected backwards the one that goes to the switch is probably connected directly to the battery and the one is suppose to be always hot is probably connected to the switch if you have the original radio have your battery tested and if is ok then try get a haynes book at any auto parts for you car and try to follow the wire that is always hot normally is a yellow or orange wire
solution #3 this apply only if you car still have the original radio
turn your ignition switch to the on position but don't crank your car and turn your radio on select a radio station then turn your ignition key off and wait 3 minutes then turn your ignition switch on again with out cranking your car and the radio should be in the same radio station you select if this test pass then chances are is your battery getting low and if this test fail then the hot wire has a blow fuse look for the fuse inside the hook let me know what happend and good luck
