Is the Amplifier a seperate unit on these cars, which radio do you Have ?
It's seperate (at least for the Sony version), it's in the trunk. I have the 10-Speaker Sony that comes with the MFT.

It should stop on it's own.
I'll make sure to call Ford and let them know how to fix it

On another note, the dealership called me back today (my dealer just forwarded the email to his service center manager so she called me). They said they hadn't heard of this ever happening, but wanted to run a full check of the "charging system" of the car, which includes (to me it sounds like that's all there is to it, but whatever) the battery. They expect it to take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours. They're just going to do it when I bring it in for them to fix my windshield molding coming off sometime this week, whenever they get that in.
