SOURCE: No radio
The front end is bad on this reicever. Your going to need special equipment to trouble shoot this problem, as Its all RF. It is most likly not worth repairing as a shop will most likly charge you more then its worth

You need a seperate AM antena for your AM radio to work. If you look on the back of the system where the FM antenna is connected you will see a AM hole for an antenna. I had same problem hope it helps!

AM.... what the heck is AM??? LOL
Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.
I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.
With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?

Common fault but as others have suggested, check aerial plug. It does fall out, speed humps vibration,cause it to come out of it's socket.If not this, try a seperate aerial such as a piece of wire or a small screw driver blade in the hole. Press search and see if radio finds a station and locks on.If it does then you know you have an aerial problem and your radio unit is ok. Sadly, if no luck and no result then the only answer is to relpace the unit as it is not servicable.These can be found at some car breakers but take your car and make sure that you buy a tried and tested unit with its pin No. Typical costs are £30 with casette and £70 for cd player.
However because there are so many different types of socket and plug arrangments on these units and they all look alike , don't be tempted to part with any cash until you have got the correct one that fits your car and it works. If does and you have its pin, it will have to be entered to make it work and you have made a written note of it in your Ford hand book , then pay the man. Good luck From been there and have the tee shirt. J.R. Note. Halfords do a fitted alternative replacement for around £150 if no luck and you are prepared to spend that kund of money.
