Power stays on. Tape deck doesn't work. Next time you start car, it might work for a while, then completely cut out. At times volume is very light and with static, then it may clear completely and come back to set volume. How do I remove the radio from the console?

I am going to explain something rather weird and some people will even say what's the difference. In your case it would be all thwe difference in the world. A "short" in a car will cause fuses to blow. An intermittent open in a car will cause things to operate only when they gt power. You have an open. There are more things wrong with the car you just haven't noticed them. The accessory position on your key feeds several spots on your fuse panel and in some cases is even split to feed multiple spots on the fuse panel. Take a piece of wire and run it from your battery positive to your radion fuse on the radio side. Pull the radion fuse, turn on the key, and check which side of the fuse socket has power. The one that doesn't is the radio side. Pu the wire there. radio should start working now. Cut this wire. The next time your radio dies, tie this wire together to see if the radio comes back on. Start there.

the radio sounds as if they are connected to a constant power supply as well as if that's not the case a faulty radio connection or radio itself is present look to see where the radio lead wire is connected to
radio problem. very common of fords with factory radios. best to get a used one. or try your local best buy and see if they can give a factory fit. they are pretty big with air included in the housing. best of luck
This sounds like your alternator maybe going bad. When your alternator starts to go bad lights such as headlights, radio lights will go dim wipers will start to move slower but if you cut one of the things off such as the wipers the lights will get brighter for a few minutes then not long the car will shut completely down. Hope this helps.
The headlights make that noise because the gears are stripped out for the headlight motor. I have heard that you can take the gearbox apart and rotate the gears 180 and get more life out of them but I have not tried it. I have replaced the motors on my TA and they are expensive. The radio and door locks and windows are controlled by retained accessory power in the body control module. This allows them to continue to be used for 10 min after you shut the engine off, or until you open a door. It is possible you are losing power to the bcm and it thinks the engine has been shut off.
More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?
If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)
If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.
One more thing Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.
check the illum. wire or the dimmer wire going to the deck. there is a wire that tell the deck when to illuminate brighter or dimmer so that it will work with the car lights.my guess is that wire is shorting or grounding out and when you turn the lights on thats when it shorts out and shuts off your deck. simple test - just unhook them and see if it works. then investigate the short if you wan the dimmer to work otherwise just cut them clean off and tape them up (so they dont short something else out) and forget about them.
