I need this CM5Z18C869HA part number, going to the local scrap yards before paying 325 at the dealer. I know what I need and not paying the service charge to check and install when I can do it/know whats wrong.


Look at this 20 page thread of countless ford owners having the same issue please let us know why this is not a TSB/extended warranty yet?!?

Unfortunately to issue a recall you need X numbers of failure... failure of the ACM are rare!

I can count on my hand people (ok triple my hands ) here who had this issue (out of how many focus are on the market)!

Electronic are not perfect... people will end will duds... so is iPhones,laptops etc

EDIT: my friend had is head-unit replaced in his Kia Rio3 2013 last month... output has failed (loud pop, then no more sound)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but a true recall would only be enacted if the problem were to cause in unsafe/fatal condition towards people. Gas pedal getting stuck at WOT would necessitate a recall. Paint prematurely peeling on one rear quarter panel does not. A recall means they actually reach out to each and every affected customer, notify them of the issue and tell them to bring the car to a service center ASAP. That's not what will happen here.

Just saying. I believe the term you're looking for is not "recall" as much as "service bulletin" or "warrant extension/exception" ? It's more.... "when a customer brings the car in with this complaint, perform this fix for free."

I think TSB/Warranty ext. would be for non-critical stuff

Define "X" 20 pages deep and they don't recognize this? Who's side you on? The stealership?

Ya TSB or extended warranty on this part, sorry my bad. _ Nijna edit

Quite a few of the old 6 CD changers crapped out, but most used it as an excuse to upgrade. Easier to do when it's not a new integrated multi-media system that does everything.

This is not about other brands(I was just saying), its about ford right here and now. Guess I will live with no radio till I find one on the cheap…

Im sure if yours took a crap on a 3year old car you might act differently.
