Grab one from a junkyard with the same part number.
Should be around $80.

Ford Focus Radio Issue-Keeps cutting off

I have a 2013 Focus with the EXACT same issue. It has been getting slowly worse for a month or so. It got so bad yesterday that I pulled the fuse (#79). Anyone else having this problem? How about a cause? I have 68k miles on it so its out of warrenty.
Based on some of these posts seems like Ford has a problem with the radio on their hands.

So is it 68k or 58K?

Based on some of these posts seems like Ford has a problem with the radio on their hands. Maybe we will need to do another class action for the radio just like the transmission.

Irrelevant, ford will not cover this.

Yes many people are having this issue as seen in this thread.
Who knows, prone to fail.


Not sure how many times i have said this.. go to a junk yard or someone parting out and get it for $50-100 then paying the dealer more.

2012 Ford Focus radio popping issues

Anyone else still having this issue where the radio makes annoying loud popping and static sound that randomly occurs even when the car is turned off? This is insane and should be fixed by Ford, since it has happened to so many. Please let me know if you are having this problem, filing a complaint with Ford and the more that speak out the better. It is a dangerous issue that can cause an accident.

True. I normally would have held onto it for a little while, but I was about to move.

Like a week or so after I threw mine away, one of the guys on other the thread about this supposedly had some success taking it apart and applying some thermal past of some sort to part of it. Haven't heard of anyone else trying it.
