F-150 XLT 5.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I am having problems with the radio. Several times I would crank my vehicle and the radio wouldn't turn on. I would only have a black screen.

F-150 XLT 6-2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,254 miles

This was second time for this to happen. This time instead of blaming weather (it was in 80's) they tested system. There were no codes. ran Oasis FOUND ssm46465. UPDATED PER SSM. cleared CODES. Retested and it passed. Will see if this fix lasts.

F-150 Platinum 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 313 miles

No Audio would occur: no radio, no phone, no computer voice. Leave the truck off for a while and then it would work again. The dealer finally replaced what they called the "radio module" and although the computer voice changed a bit, all is now well. But it took them 10 months to solve this.

The next day I turned it on again and everything was working fine. I went to the Ford dealer and told them what happened and they not had a report of this fault in another vehicle. How lucky I am. #$%&#.

About once a week the radio in our truck won't turn on either by the touchscreen or on/off button. Access to other functions on the touchscreen work fine, just not the radio.

F-150 XL 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,868 miles

This is the second time my radio has not worked upon starting my truck. The first time this happened at approximately 4-5K miles and this last time around 13868K. The instrument cluster (Air bag indicator panel) below the radio flickers during the non-operation of the radio. The radio will eventually come on after starting and stopping the engine a few times. Good thing I took video of the non-working radio as proof there is a problem. I took my truck into Ford today and was told they could not diagnose the problem and they would have to call Ford engineers for a possible solution. This was after they told me to bring it back when the problem reoccurs. I told them that was unacceptable since the truck is still under a bumper to bumper warrantee. The truck is a 2016 F-150 XL 3.5L 4x4. The throttle body went out and stranded me on the freeway at 5K miles. This issue was resolved without question by Ford. I'm beginning to dislike Ford. We'll see how they handle this situation.

apple car play does not work with sync 3 - ford has no clue

Ford advertises that Apple Carplay works with their new SYNC 3. Yet it only works with the 2017's, not the 2016's. The dealer says it needs new hardware and software that the customer must purchase from the dealer but neither is available and they do not know when it will be available. Multiple calls and inquiries convinces me that Ford really does not care about this problem. I filed an official complaint and they would not even promise to respond.

F-150 Lariat 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles

radio stops working ramdomly I have to call Sirius radio about 40 time now to refresh signal. ford tells me that they are aware of problem but don't have a solution for it. the truck is a $56,000 vehicle and they cant fix the radio. also the battery was replaced at 6000 miles. I was a truck mechanic for 45 years and this is a lot of BS this will be my last ford I will wait one more week and then demand a new radio

Update from Aug 19, 2016: just talked to the regional manager he referred me back to the dealership this is absolute bs ford is looking into the problem very simple the radio is defective and I am not a brain surgeon I think a new radio would fix the problem
