Question about 2009 Ford Escape XLT
Checked fuses. none look bad. dealer said they didn't do it. and they won't help unless for a price per hour for a whole day
You need to enter the radio code! If you do not have the code with your handbook, check gumtree.com and search ford radio code they can get the code from the serial number and email within minutes, I have used them and very reliable and cheaper than going to a main dealer.

There will be a code to reset the radio in your instruction manual. Find the code then remove the + terminal on the battery for a minute or two then refit it . follow the instructions in the manual to install the code .

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Find the person who bought this car new, take that person and the car to a Ford dealer. They will fix it for free, it is under warranty. Now that you know you have no business monkeying around with anything except the ignition key, the pedals, and the steering wheel, stay away from other things on the car.

please check the speaker. usually the pigtail which connects the voice coil with the speaker lugs breaks with the movement of sound. if u have a soldering iron then you can resolder the wires coming from cone to the speaker connection lugs- but use short time to heat as over heat may burn the speaker cone.
