Stretching back to a past issue, my rear door wires have been frayed for several months now. The passenger side just recently began to say it was open until the door was slammed, and the door lock just stopped working... delayed maintenance..I know I know.

*Update- both rear door wiring harnesses have been replaced (locks and doors now work). A new rear door handle is coming to the dealership tomorrow, that's all I'm waiting for to button it up.

Alarms of all kind are no more. The radio is slowly bringing menu items back, no sound or actual functionality are back yet. Hopefully the next day or two something will download and it'll work, otherwise I'm going to the shop manuals for troubleshooting.

Pull the radio and ohm out all your speaker connections. I’d bet the ACM is dead.

Certainly a different problem than what I had. Good luck on diagnosing and fixing. KM

Yeah, it's real wonky.

When you first start it, the power button doesn't do much, as you drive it slowly brings in volume indicator, menu button works, clock, ect. all start to respond. But no radio or sound, Bluetooth is connected but no volume. Beats the crap out of me 🤷‍♂️. I'll tear into it tomorrow.

Gross.

Is there another option for a replacement ACM, aftermarket (crutchfield)? I've been out of the audio game awhile, pardon the ignorance.
Agreed I was routing for it to come back. Idatalink makes a beautiful dashkit. Need a module I think for the climate control. Buy Maestro equipped deck. Installed a system very similar into the Mrs mustang this spring. Any questions let me know. I wouldn’t go back to factory for that price.

My two acms I killed were my factory one then an used one and I put used one last truck in and let the truck be someone else’s problem. Scared me when I was hunting driving across a field in 2 feet of snow in 4x4 and there was smoke curling out of the dash. I couldn’t stop because I’d be stuck instantly.

Other than oem/refurb, what's my options to replace this thing? I looked up that company but didn't see where they sell a replacement ACM.
