One of these came into my shop today, very simple fix at least this one was. There are 2 toroid coils mounted on the main board that should be pre-heated before the solder bath. I just resolder these 2 coils and had a happy customer.

Disconnect your negative battery cable for about 10min. After you re-connect, the stereo should reset itself and start functioning. Best of luck!

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: Our vehicles battery went dead
If the stereo is a factory stereo,you need to call Ford dealer to get the unlock code,this is common with many different makes.As far as the rest,when a battery is replaced,different makes have certain methods required to "reset" the systems.I do not know why they do it.Is it really going to deter theft,you know what I mean?Anyhow,ask the dealer if that applies to your vehicle too,a reset.Tell them you replaced the battery and all the rest what you told me.
Good luck! Greg

I recently had same problem. It was caused from water getting into the fuse panel and shortening out the ACC Relay. You need to check the ACC relay for any moisture and replace. Then open drivers side door and look at water Chanel coming off driver door. Is there holes in the front side panel? Water comes off the rail right into that panel right into your fuse box. ACC Relay is Black and rectangular shaped. It is located on driver side behind kick plate in fuse box. You do not need to disconnect battery to replace it. Cost under 10 bucks at parts store. Make sure key is off.
