Volume, Display and FM stations missing?

I bought a second hand car that has this radio CD player. It worked really well for a while but suddenly has developed loads of problems. When I turn it on it comes on at full volume (I nearly crashed the car the first time this happened as I got such a shock!). I turned the sound down, but if you try to increase the sound it just jumps right up to full volume again. The second problem is that it no longer has 18 FM station tuner presets, but only 6, and all of my stored stations have been erased. Finally, the Display is not working either, the backlight still works but the text doesn't scroll across anymore. When I turn off the radio it makes a loud popping sound also. Could this be that the fuse has blown?

This could be a bad ground on the radio, or you have serious circuit problems. if a fuse blew, the radio would not work at all. Check the installation first, replace the radio seconds. Good Luck

JUST NOW?? failed or
BOUGHT CAR USED LIKE THIS?
FACTORY OEM RADIO, BY kIA
OR AFTER MARKET RADIO, Wired in by hand.
connector to it loose? (behind)
I'd say AM is weak and FM is dead
and the antenna is not connected to radio. missing off top right fender? if missing expect:
AM in the city is so powerful it can seem it is ok and is not. see?
FM never works if antenna is unplugged or omg missing
CD DRIVES:


now the CD player.
96160-FD110? model OEM ? well its old and many now are dead.
but try a real CD_DA, compact disk, digital audio , DISK
NOW CALLED A REAL MUSIC DISK.. (LAME)
one CD that sold in a brick store, with a real label and is not MP3 disk
no CD-R recordables allowed. no DVD music disks allowed DVR-R
If a real branded labeled, MUSIC DISK it may work.
try that first. ok?
most old car Radios do not play all CDs,. TYPES.
this old CD drive inside needs to be cleaned (dust off all optics) must.

the cars users guide has no radio topic coverage at all
so they had separate manual for it. (and super rare to find)

I just bought a new pioneer cd player and i put a cd inside and it plays it normally but suddenly it changes to radio stations it's very strange

That is the symptom of a faulty selector switch. That's causing automatically switch up from CD to tuner station. Replaced the selector switch with a new one, so ks normal again.

Good luck;

Ford 6000 eon radio unit - unit has no volume on fm stations, or occasionally the vlume comes on when first turned on and then fades after about 20 - 30 seconds. It finds stations on automatic search but...

Alas

This is a very common fault with these units, repair is a little expensive, as it's the FM tuner unit. It's an ebay job I'm afraid, pay around £45 for a second hand 6000 with code.
