Question about 2001 Ford Escape
I suspect you have the radio problem that needs to be reapired by a guy who does this.
Question: The display on my radio has gone blank. Everything else on th radio seems to work.
Answer: It seems that in most cases the problem is bad solder joint for the flourescent display. Here is Chris's comments on this problem:
"On the factory stereos from Ford they used two types of displays. One is a LCD display with a light bulb behind to illuminate the segments of the display. Replacement of this bulb can be tricky but not impossible.
On the stereos with the blue/green Vacuum Florescent Displays (VFD) the problem is usually caused by broken solder connections to the display board or the Tube. On most VFD’s the last two pins on each end are the filament and if the solder connection breaks it will not let the tube light the segments. Most VFD’s will out last the life of the car but they do burnout.
Another problem to check for is if the tube itself is broken. It is a glass tube." Also, you can try here: http://www.shareamemory.com/radio/.
