While driving radio stopped working, a minute later it started up again, then two minutes more it quit for the last time. Hasn't played since. Clock is also out, blank screen. Checked fuse, it's good. Everything else works. Is there a relay that supplies radio only? Pulled radio out and all plugins look good. Any suggestions? Salvage yard says their computer shows multiple radios for 03', will they work if the plugins match?

Have you tried fiddling with the removable 'anti-theft' panel (remove/replace, look at contacts, etc).

Left side of panel will lift up, right side secure. Pushed and pulled panel no change. Do I need to remove radio to get panel off? Just noticed, red light above radio is out.

Its the little panel under the display with buttons 2-5 on it. There is a little slide button between the on/off/volume switch and the 2 button. You slide that to the left and the panel lifts out - left side first then right (as you look at it).

Which red light is out - the one near the hazard flasher switch? Is anything else not working other than the radio?

Check both radio fuses - 31 (15A) and 41 (7.5A) in CJB.

My error, red light next to HFS is working. Checked both fuses, ohm and volt check good. 31 key off 12v, 41 key on 12v. I have a different radio, display is held on with three screws. Contacts look good. Only radio not working.

Ford factory radio? Can you post a pic of your radio or link to a pic of your radio from the internet?

Yes, stock radio. FORD 6006E 6 disc CD player. #3s4f-18c815-ag

Those are fairly rare in a Focus MK1. The info I gave you was for the more common single disc CD player.

The 6 CD unit you have has a removable security panel as well but its at the top - where it says '6 disk cd player'. The release button is at the top left. I would try removing/installing this.
