You need to enter the radio code! If you do not have the code with your handbook, check 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 .

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

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!

SOURCE: 2011 ford fiesta diesel. I removed the radio fuse

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.

SOURCE: 2011 ford escape no sound from radio

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.

Ford freestyle seems to lurch forward & backward, like it idles up/

Its a bad throttle body sensor. The original manufacturer went out of business replacing bad units. Should have been a recall.

Ok. My F-150 2004 Ford has a rough idle. It will die when i sometimes come to a stop. Took it to a dealer and they put on the computer and they found the throttle body actuator code in the system. Suspect...

What the dealer told you & what they do, is replace
the entire throttle body for no reason, other than they
can't diagnose their own products & they make money
off you

There are no computers used to diagnose or work on any
motor vehicles
A professional scan tool only sees what the PCM (vehicle
computer) sees & that is where all the problems start

A (TACM) throttle actuator control motor ,is part of the
throttle body & is not replaceable & the whole assy is over
$600.00 plus their unnecessary abuse of labor

All you need is spark plugs that do not have over 60,000
miles on them.
Spray the MAF Sensor with CRC MAF Cleaner & the main
problem you have is solved with spraying the sticking throttle
plate with CRC Throttle Body Cleaner, so it works & you do
not loose throttle position or % & get TACM Codes or
get wacked for a Grand by a dealer, which you should never
be at after the warrantee runs out

Also replace the (2) front O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles

2005 Ford Five Hundred 3.0L Hesitational take off cleaned throttle plate and codes p2111 and p2104 still set. Looked in Mitchells and they're telling me to replace PCM. Any other solutions?

You have one bad COP Igniton Coil

The coil is not grounding out in the PCM

A signal is coming back to the TPS Sensor
& you loose it's signal

The PCM then doesn't know throttle position %
and sets a 2104 & 2111 & you think that you have
a bad Throttle Body Motor (TACM)

A dealer will charge you $1000.00 & fix nothing

Buy one coil for $35 to $50.00 & install yourself
You may have to walk the new coil around a few times
& drive the car 30 miles each time, until you get the bad coil

Repair shops are not good with Fords & Dealers are useless

You should have other Misfire Codes & lots of them

Give them to me

I have the error P 2106 on my ford explorer 2005 because there is message "fail Engine safe mode"

That means the accelerator pedal is in fail safe and you will only get 35% throttle accleration you should have other accompaining codes with this 2106 and those should be done first if you have ABS codes that has to be done first,2106 can be causes by a open TAC wiring disconnect, a TPS sensor that has failed (Throttle position sensor), Here is the big concern you will need to check to see if all the module are communicating with each other, you mainly will have to go to the dealer for this concern and only thier scan too can fix it and find the problem
