Like so many others, my FF 2013 radio went Kaput.
I am on a non touch Sync. I value having the hands free calling etc
Status at present: time and date and temp showing. Occasional LOUD crackle scaring the s#$% out of me.

Any advice on inexpensive approachs to having a working unit? I searched buyt could not find comprehenisve instructions on how to buy and install a new unit...
Cheaper the better.

For right now I am just using a Bluetooth speaker. That works but not hands free.

Look at Crutchfield they have some decent units, you may want to swap out for a CD/DVD or CD/DVD/NAV that retains sync controls etc.

Does not look like it plays CDs or DVDs, will the parking sensors work? Not sure as I don't see the instructions and several pieces of wire that have to be hookup to what?

Hi toolate, looks like it may work but the only question I would posed is if you have the parking sensors would that also work. On my 2012 SEL Hatchback, I lost the sensors when I went with a Jensen VX7021 and Metra Axxess.

Tell me more!
Its the unit with sirius satellite and the small 4.3 display screen.
No navigation
Its works with the six speakers.
I removed it to put in a kenwood nav unit. There are absolutely no issues with it.
And if I remember you may even get a free cd with it, Im not sure I ejected any when I removed it. Lol

Thank you for the offer! I thought the 2017 was slightly different than the 2013 in terms of size and brackets?

I actually have my old radio from my 2015 Focus. It's the 4.2" screen. I actually went from the 4.2" to a 7" display. Would you be interested in it? It's actually a very small unit so shipping it to you might not be too bad.
