Ford factory radios are designed to be removed with a set of radio keys. They look like a set of metal U's. They slide into the four holes on either side of the radios face and push the metal tabs on the inside out of the way allowing the radio to slide out. It could be that you have a burned out fuse, check your fuse box and the single fuse on the back of the radio. It can be replaced with any aftermarket radio in production, if you use an adapter for the factory harness,(or hard wire it) And what's known as a "DIN" reducer. (A plastic faceplate that makes the hole in the dash the same size as a normal radio)
if im not mistaken i you have to pull your dash off then behind the dash you will have about three or four screws holding your radio in place after removing those screws you should be able to take your radio out as far as puling you dash you will need to look for about two screws usually on the bottom if not the check in to make sure before you go yanking on your dash that you have removed every screw so as you dont break it
Take the cd player out and run the 12+V to + on 12+V battery.
Run the Ground/Black wire to negative on battery. See if the cd player will turn on. If it does, check your ground in the dash. This is just a good trouble-shooting method to make sure the cd player system board is not fried.
Take the unit out of the dash. In the back of the unit, disconnect/remove the wiring connector. Underneath a little "flap" on the bottom of this connector there is a small red 10V fuse. That fuse had blown, and when I replaced it the CD?radio worked just fine.
First, goto a store and buy a snap in wire harness and a mounting kit. There are wire diagrams in the packaging. Wire your wire harness into the radios wire harness (everything is color coded). Follow the intructions to install the mounting kit. It should tell you what screws to remove from your dash and so forth. Just remeber were everything goes. Next, after you remove the old radio, snap in you wire harness to the cars wire harness. Then, test the radio to see if it powers up and all speakers are working. Lastly, put you radio in your dash, and put everything back togeather. The number one rule in installation is take your time. If you rush, you will brake something.
it's not that hard to remove the panel you'll need to pop up the defrost dashboard trim with a flat head screw driver and then you'll reveal the top screws for the center panel, then you'll need to pop out your ash tray and reveal the bottom screws. after all screws are out you'll be able to remove center panel by hand. then there will be 4 bolts holding your radio to the dash that you'll need to remove and you're done.
It depends which vehicle it has been installed, some radios have to be screwed behind the dash but most you will just need sony removal keys, remove the trim and slide the keys (one each side) down the radio and then slide it forward if you're lucky it will come out without much force. Have fun!
