Question type: Maintenance & Repair

after many years and lot of $ every time it is damp the radio display does not
shut off, this starts a domino effect that ends with all sorts of electrical issues.
I just want to know if there is a fuse to pull to shut the thing off.

Or, if that will disable other things in addition to the radio, you can remove the radio and unplug the wiring from the back of it. Since it's a Ford you'll probably need a special tool for this. It kinda looks like a tuning fork. You insert the tool in the 2 holes on either side of the radio front to release it from the dash. HTH. -Jim

4- 12 penny duplex nails will work as a radio removal tool. Push in to release the mounting tabs and pull the radio straight out. Then unplug it as Jim said.
