This is a common issue with ford explorers/ mercury mountaineers. Best thing is to replace the stereo head unit.

What is the definition for controlled variable?


You have either constants or variables. Constants are things that does not change. Time is a constant - you can't move forward or backward in time.
Variables are parameters that change. Some variables are fixed, others can be controlled.
A controlled variable is a variable that can be changed at will or according to circumstance.
For example, if you have a radio with a fixed coil / tuning capacitor which can receive only one station, the variable (radio stations) cannot be controlled, it is fixed, therefore a fixed variable. A normal radio can be tuned to different stations, therefore a controlled variable.
The engine on a car has a controlled variable speed. A normal light bulb is controlled by a fixed voltage, until you build in a dimmer switch, which now makes the voltage variable, and controlled.
