I can give you most of your answer and it depends on the Radio. Ford has a speed-compensated Radio that will adjust the volume of the Radio to the speed of the car. This feature means you will not have to adjust a radio down at a stoplight or when going to a drive-thru.
Then when the car speeds up and engine and road noise increase, so does the volume on the Radio. So you will not have to adjust the volume of the Radio when you drive.
You need to fix the speedometer to get the radio to work correctly. You probably have a sensor connector or the sensor itself making the problem. Go to an Autoparts store and get a sensor and it will probably work fine.
This could be just a simple blown fuse. Try locating it and replacing it. If this does not work it may be a faulty radio. If it is i recommend not replacing with a factory one. These can be very pricy. You can buy one from walmart that is durable and cheap and then pay a shop to install it for about 30 bucks. Hope this helps
If you have a amplifier in the trunk check it also fuses go to ford owners manual. Com and download it for free in roadside emergencies you will find the fuses if you don't know what you have go to ford etis .Com and you can print your build sheet and birth date of the vehicle and all options that came with your car use your Vin # the last#S are your vehicles production off the assembly line
have you given the car a tune up yet? is the check engine light on? if so, have you had that checked? that car also had a couple of recalls, have you taken it in to have the recalls repaired? I "HAD" a 2000 ford focus se 2.0L. the volume control in the factory radio has the speed control as in the faster you went the higher the volume went, so the miss in the engine might be being sent through the system and it thinks that you want to over come the roadnoise. as far as I can remember it is adjustable.
Basically the volumn knob has malfunctioned and you have to get a new radio. no way to fix it....not even worth fixing. If you dont want to replace your stock radio with an aftermarket one you can easily find another stock radio for cheap at a nearby junkyard.
Yes, I have that and many problems on others.
I've installed over 18 on families and friends' cars.
Most problems are the fan in the back on the radio comes on at all times.
Called the factory and got no help.
Clock is too small to see.
I'm having the exact same symptoms and have had the same luck online. My guess is that the logic got fried during the "brown out" while trying to crank the engine on a very low battery. I thought I might find something about the "VF" and "SK" modes that it is getting into (pretty cool if I weren't missing my radio stations). I'm guessing they are European bands or something. Also getting into a CD changer mode - funny since this was a pretty low-end cassette tape model. My Cancun is 12 years old. What I'm going to try (when it stops raining) is to disconnect the battery leads for 15 minutes or so and then reconnect to see if that clears out the radio memory (if I could easily identify the correct fuse, that would make the process much easier but, alas, I can't). Let me know if you have tried anything else and I'll let you know if my attempt works.
